Shift + Ctrl + T

This week we used all our Cybersmart learning from the past term to create a poster in Google Drawings to share our top keyboard shortcut tip. We need to use lots of the keyboard shortcuts we have been learning and practising to create our posters. Do you have a top tip for using your chromebook?

Here is Devinah’s poster. What are the keyboard shortcuts that Devinah might have used to create the Chromebook in the poster?

 

Tangrams

Today we explored Tangrams to practise and gain confidence navigating our keyboard and keyboard shortcuts.

A tangram includes 7 shapes  or polygons that can be moved, rotated and flipped to create objects, animals and people.

First we practised the keyboard shortcuts to move, rotate and flip. Then we tried some of the Tangram challenges.

Visit our learning site to see more about the Tangram Challenge.

Here are some of the challenges we tried.

Crabs and monsters and flying humans

We have been learning to work with shapes and lines. It is important so we can use our chromebook keyboard faster. Fatima said that making teeth was tricky. Terrell said that making the eyes and the pinchers was easy. Divine said making angles was easy. Liku said making the wings and the fire was easy.

Have you tried to create a drawing with shapes?

Learning about shapes and lines

This week we exploring using shapes and line in Google Slides.

This will help us to: 

Can you identify the shapes and line tools we used to created these drawings?

Sharing on our blogs

Today we shared our blog profiles on our blogs. We had to remember all the steps to post to our blog including creating a unique title. We added out title last so we could use our blog post for inspiration.

All our blogs are linked from the class blog widget on the left. We hope you take some time to check them out and leave us a comment.

 

Creating our blog profiles

We are learning to make decisions about information we share and information we keep private online.

This morning we explored some blog from Panmure Bridge School.  We do not know most of these learners however some of the learners we know from meeting them at community events.

We  noticed what information these bloggers shared about themselves online. They shared a lot of their learning and what they have been creating.

Next we drafted our blog profiles for our blogs and though carefully about the information we would be sharing.

Next we will share our profiles on our blog. Visit our blogs using the links on the left.

Starting the New Year Right

Today we setup our Chromebooks for the first time. We want to start the new year right by:

  • demonstrating responsible use of our chromebooks
  • confidently navigating our learning apps

Today we focused on our Bookmarks and Google Drive. This helps us to find our learning fast and to always be in the right place at the right time when we are on our chromebooks.
