Term 2 Technology Sharing Sessions
The plan is for the sessions to be held in Week 2 and Week 8. It would be great to see staff sharing a lesson idea or student work sample for 10-15 or even just 5 minutes. It has been great to see staff having a play with the beebots so please share any lesson ideas you have created to use them in your groups.
Also on the topic of sharing, thank you to staff who have shared some of their programs and resources in the share folder on the faculty drive.
is a game where students design a hungry monster who loves to gobble up words. The greedy monster needs training to make well-structured sentences. The student helps the monster choose the right part of speech from a constantly moving selection of words. Once a sentence is complete the player can see it animated and hear it read out load.
