Reflections:
Feel like the scrapbook is going well. Got caught off guard when I asked the students to share their artifact work and poem with me. They quickly figured out that they could share with each other, and asked permission to do so. I had planned a whole lesson on constructive feedback, but in today's world the kids all have the TE. Interesting sex divide, the girls shared their work beautifully. even with the ability to edit passed on. Boys instantly realized they could edit and went to town. Lesson still to come.
1/30 Much better sharing abilities. Boys have learned respect for others creations and how to respect them. In reading their comments to each other, I noticed two girls sharing a scrapbook, complimenting, Zoe asked how she did the video, Response" I'll show you" I can only assume she jumped out of the seat demonstrate.
1/30 We also played before the break with the idea of blogging. Not enough instruction up front and sadly it turned into viewing of videos on utube with very little creating. Restarted our scrapbooks with the New Year . Very pleased with results, and quality.
One more reflection is the children's ownership of their learning. Since they spend more time on it then I do, they know how to get effects I don't. Lots of student to student learning. My job has turned in to noticing when something cool is done, asking the student if they are willing to share, and then putting it up on the projector so the child can show me and others how to do it!
