So i have brought Edmodo into my class. Turns out it is a fast-paced teaching tool.
The kids embraced this social networking tool with both hands, staying up all hours of the night posting hilarious youtube videos and shooting the breeze.
I'm trying to embrace this enthusiasm into something more meaningful so i tried to digitise the good old theatre-sports game - word at a time (but it was more like phrase at a time).
The result was quite remarkable. Everytime a kid wrote a sentence we were able to comment (out loud) "That doesnt make sense, you need punctuation, what does that mean? How does that relate? etc etc ).
Feedback was fast
Feedback was instant
It was exhausting. We were having fun - but it was condensed.
Where are we headed?
Sometimes good thinks happen and sometimes bad thinks happen. Sometimes it's hard to distinguish between the two.Some thinks need immediate action and some thinks may remain as thinks forever. Thinks can be angry and heated. Thinks can be joyful. Thinks should never be cold.These thinks are linked to many other wonderful thinks and I like to attribute these.These thinks do not necessary reflect those thinks of my employer.Think long, think on.
