The first objective we finished with quickly, it is a necessary but boring task as our students move from having a generic grade level user name and password to an individual one (that also comes with it's own email address - but that is another story)
The second objective was also quite quick and the students were amazed to find something from their classroom teachers computer in their online files (wait till we blow them away with a future introduction to airdrop!)
For the third task we decided to use a class set of iPod touches and an online survey tool called mentimeter. Mentimeter is a new favorite of ours because it doesn't require the students to log in and it makes use of QR Code which ups the cool factor. Before asking the student to finish the sentence "I learn best when" the classroom teacher and I put a wager on what would garner the most votes. Of course, I picked 'I watch a video' which no one chose (maybe it is just people like my 18 year old son that go to youtube first when learning something new, and maybe these guys were a tad bit too young).
A very eventful double period in grade two!
