Over the last week Yohan from myEd spent a day with students at Mt Eliza Secondary school as part of their Real Time Learning project.
Real Time Learning enables something incredible for students – using the principle of 20% Google time – students in Real Time Learning get 1 day of the week to work on any project of their choosing!
After seeing, using and loving learning on myEd, a group of students decided to choose as their project for the week to ‘flip the classroom’ (in more ways then one!) and teach their teachers on how to use myEd in the classroom! (which we think is really awesome on a number of levels!)
The students spent the morning working with Yohan to create their own quests and then shared one with their teachers prior to the session (flipping the PD session) and then during the session spend time working actively with each teacher showing them how to use myEd.
On top of all of this they directed, filmed and edited the following video on the process & their experience!

Too often parents feel left out of their child’s learning journey.
Only getting glimpses of their child’s progress from the ‘grunts’ of replies they may receive from their children over the dinner table, to the twice a year reports and parent teacher meetings at child’s school with their teachers.
myEd’s new parent portal changes all this.
Over the last term we’ve been working with Fiona Knights, Brian Riley and the amazing team at Our Lady of Southern Cross, in Wyndemvale, Victoria who use myEd with their students.
We recently chatted to Fiona about her experiences using myEd with her classes and this is what she had to say!
What has your experience been using myEd so far? What do you love about it?
myEd has really changed and improved the way I teach.
Before using myEd, I really found it difficult to track all my students and provide feedback on a regular basis.
Through myEd I am now able to access and view all my students work samples through the one program and give them instant feedback to improve their learning. The platform has also enabled me to scaffold their learning.
At our school, our students are involved in many project based learning and inquiry projects. myEd has enabled me to guide the students through the learning process.
The structure of myEd is based around quest based activities.
Students absolutely love participating in the quests and receiving badges.
They can easily upload their work and complete questions. The layout is easy for them to navigate and view the feedback instantly that I can provide to them about their learning.
Setting up the quests are so easy for teachers to do.
