Two Northern Territory QuickSmart schools, Driver Primary and Gray Primary, are featured in the video section of the Australian Government Smarter Schools website http://smarterschools.gov.au/videos. Both schools illustrate their successes by including positive instances of their use of the QuickSmart Numeracy and Literacy Programs. http://blog.une.edu.au/quicksmart/2013/10/06/smarter-school…smart-programs
Malena Martins will be taking over the @EduTweetOz account for the week beginning June 16. About Malena: I’m an Education Support Officer — I tutor Yr 7 and 8 students in numeracy using the QuickSmart program and I work as an Integration Aide at the same school. I’m a private tutor to a delightful middle high school student.
TED, a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading, has created a program called TEDx that brings people together to share great ideas, spark deep discussion, and opportunities for connection. QuickSmart's own Professor John Pegg will deliver a TEDx talk at Northern Sydney Institute on the 28th of August, 2013. http://www.une.edu.au/simerr/quicksmart
Jenny and Sophia catch up after 9 years. Sophia was a QuickSmart Literacy student in 2004 while the program was being developed.
