The Year that has Gone
The year has flown by so quickly and what a great year it has been. Our class has had some great times doing a lot of amazing things. From Busselton Camp through to our year 7’s attending a trip to Margaret River last week, to participate in canoeing and bushtucker tasting. Believe it or not …. I did eat a witchety grub. Next week we finish the year with our Celebration Night and our Graduation Assembly. Just can’t wait to display our LipDub to our school community.
On a personal note, the highlight of my year has definitely been learning more about incorporating technology into the classroom. This has been all thanks to Mr Phipps and Mr Scott. I have loved working more with Smart Boards, iPods and of course Blogging.
I have found blogging to be a great way to communicate to the broader community and the parents and children of our class. It was always so lovely to receive comments from others across the globe enjoying what we were learning about in the class. Students individual blogs gave them the opportunity to engage with students from places around the world who shared the same interests. It also gave them the opportunity to display their written work in a variety of genres. Blogging also gave the teachers the chance to teach about how to use social media appropriately.
Next year I will continue to blog and encourage my students to do the same. I am still deciding how it will look in my class but look forward to more technology challenges.
Thank you for a fantastic year “Team”. I have loved teaching you all and will miss having some of those characters in the class in 2012. Keep up the great work year 7’s and best of luck in high school.
PS I would love to hear your comments On what you thought about blogging?
