Hi my name's Anne Kenneally and I'm the deputy principal at St Mary's School, Mosgiel. I'd like to share a little bit of my story with you.

I've had the privilege and the pleasure of being an eFellow this year. It's opened up a whole new world for me. Last year I studied and fell in love with the Horizon report and CORE's top trends. And For me BYOD, or BYOB (Bring your own browser) became not only an ancronym but a real possibility. I was never going to be teaching in a class where one to one was going to happen for my learners, but I knew a lot of my learners had their own devices at home. So I set out to make it possible for them.

The first thing I did was survey my learners and their families and engage them in discussions about how it might work at our place, what it might look like. So we set out at the start of the year, nine, I think nine of my learners had their own device and we worked out what might be possible. 

Equity was one of my main concerns and that proved quite unfounded because the learners who don't have a device have significantly greater access to the devices in the class. 

What does it look like for us as learning? Well it looks like transforming our learning. Making school a lot more like home. Learning happens 24/7 anywhere, anytime, anyhow. My learners will tell you they learn on their device they own their learning. The device is just a tool, just a point where we may find a way that we can create, innovate, and learn a new way.

It has been life changing for me, for our learners, we innovate we create together. We are making magic, learning is magic for us.

I guess it is all about telling a story. My learners are telling a story. They have fun, we learn everyday, we discuss, we reflect and we are trying to create digital citizens. Yes we make mistakes, everyday. We make a mistake, we do something online that perhaps isn't the way we should do it and we learn from that. Each mistake is an opportunity to do things differently, really transform our learning.

When I talk about transforming learning I'm talking about the changes that are visible to the learners, the extended family, and to us as a class family. Probably the most significant change has been written language, engaging in literacy. We connect and collaborate across New Zealand, across the globe. We have participated in pass the blog, 100 word challenge, quad blogging. My writers write for a purpose. They write for an audience, they interact with their audience, they gain feedback, they are writing with purpose, with passion, with magic.

I guess the crucial learning for me is that learning is about the learner -  hand the learning over to the learner. Empower the learner to set goals, work out their steps, work out where they are and how to get to the next step, how to get where they're going.

Maybe the biggest thing though is there are multiple paths to success. Set off on a mission, get there how you can, when you can. Create magic along the way, revise, reflect, maybe head off on a new journey.
