We are finally now getting into halo-halo weather! Halo-halo means “mix-mix”. So here is my monthly mix of my favourite sites, tools and ideas which are definitely quite random this month – a trend that I’m sure will continue as we head towards the end of the year.

This post is unbelievably behind schedule but explores the final part of the Pecha Kucha journey undertaken by my class. After four lessons of preparation, pondering and photographing – the day had arrived where my class would be presenting their Pecha Kucha presentations.
So we have arrived at PechaKucha day. Have my students actively engaged with this unit? Has the Pecha Kucha experience been beneficial? Have I provided an opportunity for the construction of deep knowledge and meaningful learning? Or, have I simply created another vehicle for angst about speeches, bullet points and PowerPoint?
Halo-halo is a popular Philippine dessert consisting of shaved ice and a delicious combination of young shredded coconut, beans, steamed banana, macapuno, sago, kaong (sugar palm fruit), nato de coco (coconut jelly) and topped with crispy toasted rice, ice cream and leche flan (creme caramel). But why a halo-halo themed post? Halo-halo means “mix-mix”. This will be a monthly mix of my favourite sites, tools and ideas.
This post is little behind schedule but later on today my class will be giving their PechaKucha presentations. Our final lesson of preparation began with a feeling of lethargy and blank looks.
So we went back to why are we doing this?
We needed to refocus, reflect and recharge.
On my way to the 1:1 Learning Unconference
It is going to be an amazing couple of days with unbelievable opportunities to:
- Connect with others on so many levels
- Conceptualise new ways of thinking and implementing
- Collaborate and create new directions for learning
