We have taken over one of the General Purpose Computer Labs. The students are very excited to get started. We have successfully logged in every student that had Parental Internet Permissions. Class Dojo is going well. The Vortex Leaderboard was shared.

My students are amazing. They are already settling into the grove of getting to class and logged in before the tardy bell. While I am anxious to get back into my own classroom, the students do not seem troubled by it. They are happy to be moving forward.

Some of my students do not have computers or high speed internet at home. They are not able to complete the assignments at home if they didn’t finish in class. I will have to keep this in mind in the future. Next week, I will begin having my tutoring days after school, so hopefully some of them will be able to get access that way.

I need to find consistent way to let the kids know if they need to log into Edmodo or not when they arrive. They want to be completely ready to go when the tardy bell rings. I love this about them.

The Game and Video Simulations Foundations class are creating animated stories. I am impressed with how quickly they have caught on to doing this in Power Point. I will have to work hard to stay ahead of them.
