This term, the Senior students have been using our wonderful new Chromebooks to learn how to use Google apps on a completely new device.
We have explored a couple of concepts side-by-side: firstly, the setup of computer networks and troubleshooting, and secondly, the meaning behind ‘#firstworldproblems’.
We talked about the phrase “First World Problems” and responded to a music video about this idea:
We made word clouds to discuss the language surrounding computer networks and the internet:
We used National Geographic’s ‘A Developing World’ website to compare the statistics of different countries to Australia, then annotated screenshots to draw attention to the interesting information:
Overall, the 5/6’s have worked really well with the Chromebooks and have shown a lot of enthusiasm in their lessons this term. Great work, everyone!
