Today, Wednesday 23rd March, all students have invited a special person to our Family Blogging Afternoon.
The students in 2KM and 2KJ are teaching their special family member about blogging and quality commenting.
This blog post is for everyone at the Family Blogging Afternoon to comment on!
(Anyone else can leave a comment too of course)
★★★ What was school like for you? ★★★
Mrs Morris and Miss Jordan are often telling the students in 2KM and 2KJ how things have changed in schools over the last few years.
Mrs Morris and Miss Jordan started primary school in 1987 (not at the same school!). They didn’t have any computers in their classroom until Grade Six.
When Miss Jordan and Mrs Morris were at school there was no Skype, interactive whiteboards, digital cameras, internet, blogs, email or iPods. They couldn’t make any connections with any classes overseas.
Mrs Morris and Miss Jordan first used the internet in Year 12 in 1999. The internet was very different back then.
When Miss Jordan and Mrs Morris were at school, they didn’t get to work in groups much and there was a lot of copying off the blackboard!
Some things about Miss Jordan’s and Mrs Morris’ time at school are the same as what 2KM and 2KJ do at school. They had classes like Music, P.E. and Art. They did lessons like Reading, Writing and Maths. They had Integrated Studies topics like Food and Dinosaurs. However, a lot has changed!
So much has changed even since Miss Jordan and Mrs Morris started teaching in 2004!
