Voki Fun

I have been having a play with Voki for a research project I have started on the Northern Pacific Seastar. I thought that I would share this great teaching tool as I think that it will help students to solidify their ideas and present information they have gathered for an inquiry project!

First Blog Post

Kim V’s Technology

Hello this is my first blog post!
I have been busy setting up this blog and connecting other Web2.0 platforms to it — with a lot of frustration. I think technology hates me sometimes! Although, learning to navigate and use Web2.0 platforms is a handy skill, especially for teaching 21st century learners. I think most children know a lot more about how to use these platforms than their teachers or parents.

I have been having a look at teaching ideas, books and other resources along the way and when I was on Facebook I saw the below picture. It made me laugh, because the past two weeks I have been finishing the last of my eight assignments with a terrible head cold.  I am in need of a little rest before study period two starts on the 1st of June.
