A much smaller group gathered this week for the Knowledge Bank Talk it Tuesdays. Discussions centred around keeping year 7 and 8s motivated. Despite trialling the latest technology, students can be happy with pen and paper tasks. Ways in which live blogging using CoverITlive was also discussed. The applications for both the classroom and general professional development were all looked at.
As we were a small group, we experimented with the new online software woices. This has potential for very interesting applications for classroom use – soundscapes, geography, bushwalks, novel plotting etc. Kate who was our host for the afternoon, shared the web application, so we were all able to listen and watch simultaneously. The chatroom was vibrant with great conversations.
