Year Five Work Program
Google Docs looks fantastic. I’ve created my term two, year five work program and invited Donna, who I team teach with, to become a collaborator. This could work really well for us as unintentially creating multiple copies, and accessing our work from home has all been an issue for us.
This tool also has lots of potential for classroom application. Maybe we could even give it a go this term. In fact I think I’ll log straight back into google docs and add it in.
Photos in Facebook
As the mother of two teenagers I’m already fairly familiar with myspace and facebook. Their fantastic for keeping up with your kids particularly when they’re travelling. I think it’s the photos that I really like.
As a primary school library I’m not sure what role they have for us. Our kids aren’t meant to be on them anyway.
This is the first task that hasn’t really grabbed me. I decided to subscribe to my own blog, one by a presenter I like and Bright Ideas (SLAV) as my library blog. Instantly I had 21 unread posts. What a disaster. I already have mountains of unread email to deal with. I guess if I refined my list to just people I was really interested in it might become more useful. On a more positive note I did like the way it aggregated all the posts so I didn’t have to swish about the net looking for my information.
This is a truly amazing site.
I added three books I already owned and it suggested other books I might also like. I was straight off to the dymocks site to buy them. Check back later to see how they rate.
What a fantastic way to waste a day.
My favourites were definitely:
I tried to focus, at least a little, on curriculum applications. Perhaps the students could conclude their dinosaur investigations by creating and laminating trading cards rather than just producing the the usual fact sheet.
Wow! A photo.
Here we are camping at Gunbower Island.
Welcome to my exploration of Web 2
I’ve dabbled a little before (wikis and facebook) but I’ve decided it’s time I made a concerted effort to keep up with the kids.
