We thought this day would never arrive. The students of Room 19 received their Netbooks yesterday and spent the last part of the afternoon labelling and doing initial log-ins on their very own netbook (well, I should say loan netbooks until the end of the year).
This morning after Karakia, Mihimihi and Himene the students had their first 'play' with their netbooks. The classroom was filled with excitment and there was a definite buzz of activity throughout the morning block. There were moments of excited "Oooooooooooh's" and frustrated "Awwwwwwwww's" as students worked through the basics and setting up process.
I managed to capture a few moments via video and photographs in between supporting students. Take a look at a snippet of our 'Netbook' morning.
