  6. Hi Henrietta,
    I was just wondering if your ‘techiebrekkie’ blog was taken down or has moved to another location?

    I am an ICT leader from Melbourne and have introduced Techie Brekkies at my school and had come across your blog a while ago but now I can’t seem to get into it.

    You had some wonderful links, ideas etc and I was wondering if you will be opening it up for other educators?

    Many sincere thanks,
    Raff

    I’m sorry Raff but about a year ago I just had to give up something and it was the Techie Brekkies website. I think it must have disappeared, but could perhaps be found using the wayback machine. Technology moves so quickly that most of the links on it were for programs which have since been superseded these days.

    Hi Henrietta,

    I am a beginning teacher and I stumbled across your blog from 2012 about the picture book unit you did with Year 6. I am in the midst of attempting to plan something similar myself and I was just wondering if you could give me any more details about the project. As I’m a specialist teacher, I only have one lesson a week with my Year 6 students. What was the time frame for when you ran the unit? Any help at all would be greatly appreciated as I’m starting to worry that I’m being too ambitious with this idea!

  10. Hi Henrietta,
    I enjoyed reading your blog and wonderful ideas. I was wondering where I could learn more about how you set up the homework task on creative writing and having other students etc vote on the next chapter. Also how can my class read and comment on your class blogs.
    Any information would be appreciated.
    Thanks
    Anne
