I had a plan that involved going outside the classroom and taking photos. It was raining. Hard.
I had a plan that the boys would use their iPads- they were flat after the holidays.
I had a plan that the boys would use the text feature of Tellagami- that feature didn't work today- there was an encoding problem.
I had a plan that the boys could all Flick their videos to me- Ethan's refused to.
We boxed on and made it work- as we do.
The boys wrote their stories into Tellagami text- I took a photo of the text on my phone- and the boys read aloud the text from my phone.
Not exactly what I had in mind but most of the boys had something to show for it at the end. The time frame is very short and I am a bit concerned that the boys are only writing very briefly in the time we have for the lesson.
I am going to see if a combination of blogging and images provides more opportunities for writing next week but most of the boys don't know their log in.
I will go through and log in for each boy and see if I can log in on their behalf so we don't stall before we even start when we try to blog next week.
