Week 13

Students did not come to the computer lab this week again due to STAR testing. The laptop cart was very popular though with use by Mrs. Gillespie, Mr. Devore, Ms. White, Mr. Ramirez, Ms. Randi and Ms. Nieto/Gordon. I was very excited to be involved in the classrooms with Ms. Gillespie and Ms. Nieto. In Ms. Gillespie's class, students created slideshows using Powerpoint to showcase their state research. Student's really enjoyed this project. These reports turned out absolutely gorgeous! Students in Ms. Nieto/Gordon's class are making their narrative stories come to life by transforming them into digital stories. Several technical problems have arose with using laptop cart 2. These include: inconsistent internet access and a computer that currently won't boot.
