Glimpses from the IT Centre

I had my camera out today, to record what was happening in the IT Centre…

Learning through play:

The Grade 5s are studying the Ancient Egyptian civilisation and so today they are building a pyramid with this stunning BBC History Game called Pyramid Builder. Try it! They’re having a ball, and what they don’t realise is that there is a lot of learning going on because the game requires thought and logical reasoning as well as decision making.

Afrikaans Cycle Test:

The Grade 4s wrote their Afrikaans Cycle test here today – on the computers! They coped very well!

Brushing up on our Geography with a Rugby World Cup Game:

With this quick little game created by a friend (and her co-author) to promote her latest book in the Planet Octavia series: Geogrugby. Do you know where all the World Cup Rugby nations are in the world?

School was never this much fun in my day!

  1. wow wow wow….you are great and fantastic work in your it centre! Sandi Blackbeard is also working hard…and is impressed with your work too! Well done

  2. Indeed! I’ve had a day of students creating websites from the year 2050, some eSafety podcasts, some rather dry citation work on Word, and writing the school magazine using a twitter feed to receive #DearDolly agony aunt letters. It’s hard to imagine etaching without a computer anymore!
