Report writing season… ponder kid, ponder kid, write a paragraph of positive when you’d rather be honest, edit, colleague cooperatively corrects copied carelessness, supervisor strikethroughs signify subtle substitutions, remove commas, add c,o,m,m,a,s, throw in a hyp-hen for good measure, correct, copy to system, shorten, review, save, have a life… wait for reports to be published… find report in bin.
Week 1 is over, and I need to reflect on what happen when I introduced laptops into my classroom.
A Digital Education Revolution (DER) laptop in the hands of all Year 9 students changes everything… or does it?
I recently created a site called MathsKit. Whilst I added some links to it on this site, I haven’t actually mentioned it yet.
Year 9 got their DER netbooks just before the end of Term 3. The first week of Term 4 will be the first time they have them in class, so I wanted to start term with some introductory activities, with a Maths focus.
This post is a work in progress, check back for updates.

I’ve been meaning to try ClassTools.net for a while. With ClassTools.net you can make interactive Flash games, from a range of templates, then save and share them.
