So we used our laptops today to practice our multiplication facts online. Later we used them to work on our poems and journals that we began after our recent trip – we’ve been learning to illustrate them by accessing and inserting our own photos from our Flickr account. We are learning about analogies so we went to an interactive site about analogies and students came up and used our interactive whiteboard to run the site. Next we used our laptops to use more interactive sites about analogies (here and here) to practice on our own.
We were in the middle of that activity when we had to put the laptops away for the day so we could go to â€œcomputersâ€ in the computer lab for our usual 30 minute once a week session. Does anyone else see irony here?
