Melville Intermediate - Online Tutor
At Melville Intermediate, in Room 8 we had a wonderful moment today. Thanks to AlanahK's Class at Appleby School in Nelson we were able to do some real time interactive learning. We've been admiring there online work when they're teacher said "what about a Skype link up?". We were thrilled and a bit nervous at the same time, never-the-less at 1:30pm today we duly connected. Nick did the honours for Room Eight. Some students were so excited when we saw the faces from AlanahK classroom they couldn't help rushing the screen to wave! We had an excellent experience, one of those motivating lessons for students and teacher and as a result Nick will be producing a Pivot animation which we'll post online in the next few days. If there is anyone else intersted in Skype-ing with us, let us know! A massive wonderful thanks to AlanahK and her class!
