BYOD in Room 2

BYOD - Room 2

A group of Room 2 students with their own devices met with a group of researchers from the University of Waikato, a visiting Teacher from Wellington and a group of Principals this week. 

They were asked:
 1) how they used their devices 
 2) what 'apps' they liked. 
 3) how the chromebook improved their learning
 4) what was learning like before you had devices
 5) what would improve your devices

Lucy, Johntay, Quinn, Kyra, Lydia, Emily

Mr Langford was most impressed with the way in which our students articulated their learning and conducted themselves throughout the discussions.

Room 2 butterfly hatching!

In Room 2 today we were lucky enough to see one of our butterfly cocoons hatch in a beautiful Monarch Butterfly! Miss Moore recorded this on timelapse so the video is moving faster than what it would in real life. The video is quite long so skip forward to 1:45, this is where the butterfly begins to hatch.
