I love Thursday mornings because of our class computer time. We have 16 computers in our suite which means most of the children can go on at the same time and finish updating then uploading their stories.
Our computer time is often when our Prinicpal John Cubitt wanders through to see what we are up to and how the project is going. My class are very good at getting John involved in their wikis. One of the children has shown John how easy it is to blog so we will be setting him up with his own sign in next week and give him a more intense lesson so that he can participate in the online feedback. John is very impressed with the progress of the students writing.
After our computer session I had a quick look at the changes then discussed them with the class. A few of my students have commented on their frustration at the typing. They are not fast at it and their stories don't get up to date compare to whats in their books or that it takes them a long time to try and edit all of their work because have too many mistakes.
I have decided I will rewrite them online over the weekend as best possible then upload them into their wiki page. Hopefully they will also get more online feedback because the audience can actually read it and make constructive comments.
