Technology Lessons
Explicit teaching of technology lessons will take place Wednesday mornings after recess in the computer lab. There are 15 computers in which the students will buddy up and work on various technological skills. There are also currently 2 computers in class where students could rotate to complete activities.
Many of the technology skills will be used within the context of a curriculum area to make it more realistic, purposeful and also to facilitate the learning as a vehicle. This will most likely be in Theme topics, Mathematics or English.
Currently the class is trialling the BlogEd website, using this as a forum to give feedback and ask questions.
