ICT LT Cluster Day

The best thing about today was the morning tea. Gotta love Belinda's homemade afghan's and the vegetarian fillo pockets. Oh and the lunch was delicious too....thanks.

After much deliberation I have created a blog for the students of Room 17. I will be working with my students and uploading evidence of them using a range of ICT tools in their Literacy Programme. We have been using Keynote with hyperlinks to different pages and when this is finished I will share the process on my blog. So....watch this space!

Room 17 Superstars

I've had the privilege of using a 'Flip Video'. It's so easy to film the students and then with one press of a button a USB pops out of the side and you can plug it into your laptop and iphoto automatically opens and you can download the video footage. Just brilliant and so easy. If your lucky enough to have a Flip Video in French you can easily change it to English by pressing the red record button while the icon is visible on the screen when you first turn it on. Then you can change the FRENCH to ENGLISH.


  1. What's this - candid camera? You are very sneaky! But I can't be cross with the compliments about my baking so you are more clever than I ever realised. I'm still recovering from the shock of you wanting a class blog - have you emailed Amanda yet!!!! I don't think you will regret it as you have a specific purpose in mind which makes it much easier to embed into your programme without being too much extra work (eventually). Happy to help you after school or during release time if you need help with anything.

  2. Haha there was no notification of this!! But I had to grin a little when I saw this MrsR... I am very stoked that you are beginning to enjoy blogging a bit more. Once you are up and running I would love to know so my kids can come view and comment on your kids work!
    Miss S :)
