Snapshots from today - Valentine's Day posters - year 8 and 9

Today we had an exhibition in year 8 and 9 for students who have English and Swedish instead of modern languages like German, French or Spanish. We have focused on Valentine and how to write an ode to someone or something. The students have tried to express themselves in English or Swedish. Some of the students have only been in Sweden a short time, so I was extremely impressed by their work. Add chocolate snowballs, chocolate cookies, cider and some yummie candy hearts and you have students that enjoy mingling and putting their works on display. Each visitor at the exhibition was also asked to give positive feedback on post-its.

A Google A Day - keeps your digital illiteracy away?


Well, this was fun! And challenging! And a bit ... difficult, actually... I am in the planning process of my digital literacy project that will start during week 10 in my year 9. So I came across "A Google A Day" - where you get a few questions and you can collect points (the quicker you are the better) in your hunt for the correct answer. Try it - not as easy as one would expect at first and something that I'll use as a topic for discussion later on. :)


Simple checklist for evaluation of websites - digital literacy

A little ahead time I put these up here just to get you acquainted with them. During week 10 we will work with digital literacy and the checklist below. We will also do certain parts of Skolverket's exercises about digital literacy as well as their self-assessment. If you want to, have a closer look at it already..
