Back in Term 2 our class made a video submission to the Education and Science select committee Inquiry on Digital Learning. Now finally the committee is hearing verbal submissions our class gets a chance to have their say on digital learning.
Because our class only has 5 minutes to speak, we couldn't take everyone who wanted to speak to parliament.
On Friday we decided on what we were looking for in our representatives. We decided our representatives needed to be confident public speakers, answer questions well, made a good contribution to our video submission, manage their time effectively and cope under pressure were what we were looking for in our representatives.
Interested students then had the weekend to prepare before making a presentation on why they thought they would be an awesome representative for our class. To add to the pressure we invited our principal Mrs Stuart along to see the presentations. The the class, our principal and teacher then graded the students on each of the criteria.
After much deliberation and scoring Lachlan, Stephen, Giorgione, Helen and Jade have been selected to be verbal submitters. Giorgione won't be speaking but she is helping with our work and is going to make a documentary about our experience so that others can share in our learning.
Congratulations to those selected and a huge thank you to the students who tried out.
