Innovative Kiwi stars at Microsoft world teachers forum

Onehunga High School teacher Nathan Kerr has been recognised for his classroom creativity, as part of Microsoft’s 2008 Worldwide Innovative Teachers Forum.

Kerr came first in the Innovation in Collaboration category for the digital learning projects he had undertaken within a multi-cultural school.

The forum, held in Hong Kong, aims to reward teachers who incorporate the creative use of technology in their classrooms.

“It’s teaching the students on their terms. They know this stuff, they know it far better than me and they taught me everything about this,” says Kerr.

“And for me, not only do they work harder and faster, the results have been fantastic because they feel comfortable with the technology.”

Teachers from 64 countries entered the competition. The forum is now in its fourth year.
