Getting the students to teach me
On Tuesdays I lose about half my class to choir practise so I have decided to have fun with ICT with the rest of the class. Today I had booked our pod of 8 laptops so that I could get them to work out the Goanimate.com program from the Cool Tools for Schools website. I don't know whether it is our server blocking but only the class work station would work the program properly. I had had a go on Sunday an struggled to make the program work so I had the bright idea of putting the students on and they could then teach me. They were definately enthusiastic but trying compatability views helped to some extent but I also don't know whether using the same login for all computers was stopping us too. I think we were all frustrated. I then tried some of the other website but had trouble loggin into them as well. Talk about best laid plans.
