Techie Wednesday

Good afternoon,

Today, after a busy, busy start...

(I was wondering how they'd get that house of Hazel's out the door!)

...we tried to use the pod of netbooks to use the R.E. digital resource together, all at the same time.


Jolly computer. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't!
Turns out, if you try to open 14 copies (15 if you count my Tablet) of the R.E. resource all at the same time, the server has a spaz and the network just can't handle it!

So, on to Plan B.  Of which there was none.  I quickly pulled one out of thin air, and thought to get the children to use Comic Life to take take photos of themselves using the netbook's web camera (a difficult task in itself, specially when the jolly thing doesn't work without restarting the computer!), and then adding some R.E. to it.  This started out as an R.E. lesson after all!

Here are the results.
Holy Objects and Rituals

As I said on the cover, not bad considering the last minute nature of the whole enterprise!

And that was our afternoon!

Right, tomorrow.  We're in the Life Ed caravan in the first half of the morning, and then again in the second half.  So no numeracy or literacy interchange at all tomorrow.

Oh, and I forgot to mention in the weekly newsletter, I'll be out of the room next Monday as we J Team teachers take time out to plan next term.  Mrs Hooker will be back in my stead.

And a good time will be had by all!

Mr Grant

And now Blogger has changed it's interface - it's putting the pictures in the wrong place! Argghhhh!
