Venue: Stanhope Rd School
Parking: There is very limited parking in the school grounds. I suggest that no visitors come in via the Harris Rd gate.
There are some carparks in the lower carpark off the Ellerslie-Panmure Highway. There is also street parking both in Harris Rd & Stanhope Rd. There is a walkway from Stanhope Rd through to the school.

Handouts: Please bring the handouts from the first Teacher Only Day along with the two HOT Self Assessment Rubric Resources above
Laptops: With Inspiration Concept Mapping or another visual mapping programme loaded (There is a free 30 day trial available for Inspiration http://www.inspiration.com/freetrial/index.cfm ) or access an online tool – (you may want to register for some of these beforehand)

Professional Reading: Concept Mapping on Wikipedia and Joseph Novak’s “Report on The Theory Underlying Concept Maps and How to Construct and Use Them” pdf - Note this is only for those made curious by Visual Mapping and whether it makes a jot of difference to student thinking/cognition – you will not need it to enjoy the day
