Final day of Web Challenge - working with Heather & R9 & 10 to get their work finalised and uploaded. Phew now I know why they call it Web CHALLENGE!
There was some excellent work done & the kids have just learnt heaps along the way – mainly under their own steam. The challenge with one group was writing original material – and another was file management – stuff saved all over the place and not linking. Then the biggy was music – very disappointing for the kids to find they could not use downloaded music – this was a great learning opportunity and we discussed copyright, plagiarism etc. One group tried to get round this by putting in their own music that they had made on their Wellington camp but we had run out of time. I would Challenge all our schools to enter next year!

A little unorganised today – scheduled to work in the JuniorMiddle syndicate – staff away, unavailable. Did a cybersafety lesson with Room 19 & a reliever (I thought the reliever might pick up some PD ideas) not a good idea – kids were a little jumpy already, they got excited to have me in the classroom & I set them off completely. Oops sorry!
