We are doing an end of year blogging project that the students wanted to do. Tell about being in a 1:1 laptop class that does lots of projects (their wording). The problem? The only reference point they have is when they were in 3rd grade and before. That’s tough to compare and contrast with because when you are that age you just don’t typically think that way. If we were in high school and this was a new experience they could refer back to upper elementary and middle school and note how much different things are … but doing school this way is kind of all they know. So I’ve explained that to them and we brainstormed out many of the projects and activities we’ve been involved in … now they are trying to tell about their experiences. Should be interesting. If anyone has any ideas I could use to make it easier for them to think about this to tell their story, let me know … um like right away, only 2 days left of school!
Learning is messy!
