Reflection Presentation

This term has been a good start to reaching my long term goal. I have enjoyed finding solutions to problems with the students. For example, how my students access their work, how they share their explain everything projects, etc. I have been impressed with their increase of confidence and self management and really looking forward to how this might develop further throughout the year.

Where I want to head next is:
- How might I make connections from my use of explain everything with my students to the use of Movenote?
- How am I going to use SOLO in my project design?
- I want to explore the use of that Fast Forward series of books for my lower kids.

Student Blogs - William & Desmond

Below are a couple of links to examples of students sharing their work on their blogs. It has been interesting to me to see how they are managing to do this independently. When they are just posting a screenshot to their blogs they are able to do this easily. When they try to post a movie they need much more help from me. I am hoping that this will change with time as they get used to the process.

I have also enjoyed reading about their understanding of their learning. For William his enjoyment is very high but he doesn't really understand what he has learnt. My next step is to make his learning more explicit so he is able to reflect on his improvements and his next learning steps.
