Teaching the teacher!
This week I started helping my mentor Archana build her dream site.
We sat down together and discussed what she wanted, she made her plan and I started to guide her through making her site from scratch.
It was very helpful for me to do this, as it consolidated knowledge that I had learnt back in Term 1 at the Manaiakalani Digital Immersion days. It is also a challenge as she has big ideas and knows what she wants, but some of those things I don't know how to do.
So to teach her, I have to first go and learn how to do it.
Which is great! It pushes me to learn beyond what I am taught, and expand my own knowledge.
On Monday we took this screen recording and audio recording of our discussions.
On Tuesday, Archana bought her designs and then I had to figure out how to do a photo slideshow.
I used these instructions to guide me, and figured it out!
(Part 2 coming soon!)
