About Virginia




Virginia Kung is an experienced school teacher, an Adjunct Lecturer for the University and the
Deputy Principal at Newmarket Primary School in Auckland. She has expertise in using
SOLO Taxonomy to enhance learning outcomes and raise student achievement. In addition she
regularly mentors teachers in the use of SOLO for teaching and learning.  

This year Virginia has focused her teacher inquiry around the "Plan to Pedagogy Project".
The Innovative Learning Environments and Teacher Change (ILETC) project is an Australian
Research Council Linkage Project funded led by The University of Melbourne.
The project investigates how teachers can use the untapped potential of Innovative Learning
Environments (ILEs) to improve learning outcomes for students. It will identify whether there is
a link between quality teaching and effective use of ILEs and develop practical tools to assist teachers
to adapt their teaching practices to maximise deeper learning.
She is a teacher from Newmarket School in Auckland, New Zealand. This year she was appointed champion of the Mathematics/Pāngarau Initiative where she mentors three Across School Leaders in the Auckland Central Community of Schools Kāhui Ako.

I use slideshare to share my presentations. I like it because it is easily embedded into web pages. I also like slideshare because I can track the number of views each presentation has had.
