Interesting Uses of ICT / Vokis

I've just visited a class blog for a Year 1 class. They have used the Voki to ask questions and the
children can then click on comment and give their answers. They had some great spelling ideas too.
Lots of great ideas and links to other blogs.

More Backgrounds

Hi everyone. Been playing with backgrounds just for fun and variety.
See what you think. Quite 'girly' though. If anyone finds some more
'masculine' ones please let me know.

ICT Fun and Games

Have loved exploring the resources Craig shared.
Working on upskilling IWB skills. Have cancelled After School Maths
Club with the intention of using this time to complete the online
courses at Promethean. Anyone else keen??
Showed the kids what we did on Friday and, of course, they took
everything on board and immediately decided how they could
adapt it to their own learning. Love my kids!
They are now working on identifying ways they can use ICT in the
trip to Dunedin next week. Very exciting! I can't wait to see what
they come up with. So proud of them.

Flip Videos and Learning

Had a lot of fun today using the flip videos in reading and writing to find out more about where our epals live.
The children created their own rubrics for assessing their learning. They've taken to using these really well and are very critical thinkers when analysing their progress.
They recorded their questions and answers in lots of different ways. There is even a song coming so I'm told!
