Cyberbullying session 1 with Grade 4 students

This morning was a special morning for 4M students as Ms. Kumamoto (our counselor) and I went into their class and talked about cyberbullying. I shared a presentation that I prepared for them with questions on their usage of the net, where they go, what they do, how they communicate with their friends. Quite a good amount of them have online presences, using websites like Club Penguin or the Moshi Monsters. They communicate through their cellphones, iPads, iPhones, computers and laptops. They use gmail, gtalk and skype for chatting with each other, friends and family. They had a clear idea of what bullying is but could not draw a certain line to the concept of cyberbullying. They could not decide if it is serious issue or not. As a complimentary we watched the short movie, Let’s Fight it Together!.We had a brief discussion about what was going on and we will continue our session in detail next Monday morning. Well done Grade4, great discussions this morning.

Morning Tech Session with Grade 2 Parents

I love my tech mornings… Spending an hour with the parents of the students that I work with everyday and introducing them the technologies their kids use is a great opportunity for all of us. This morning we commented on Grade 2’s blogs, learned how to create a Voicethread and leave a comment on it.

Thank you for being a part of your child’s learning parents! You did a great job collaborating this morning.

See you next time!
