34P Predicting Prezi’s

This semester 34P have enjoyed using technology to help them learn new things in literacy. The blog has been a great place for the students to collaborate and take control of their own learning. The teachers are extremely proud of how they have developed their technology skills and how they are now using the blog as a stepping stone to other learning avenues. We can’t wait to see what they come up with in Semester 2.
Here are some Prezi’s That the students made in response to the previous post – 3/4 P Predicting Task

34P Challenge

Can you use your safe internet skills to complete today’s challenge?
Miss Ali Khan tells me that you are learning about the difference between narrative writing and persuasive writing.
These are 2 reasons people write. We call them text purposes.
All good writers organise their ideas before writing them down. These days we can use webtools to help us do this. Check out my popplet about text purposes.
