Digitech ‘Draw Your Favourite Room’

Digitech ‘Draw Your Favourite Room’

Last week in Digitech the students used the Google Drawings application to draw their favourite rooms. They learnt about how to draw using the different shapes available in the program as well how to label and colour these shapes. There was a great variety of rooms drawn including bedrooms, games rooms, living rooms and one student even drew their shed. We noted the importance of not only drawing the different items in the room but labelling these as well.

I was very impressed with the standard of the drawings and I thank all the students (and their parents) for their hard work with completing these drawings.

Here is a small selection of the great pictures that were created of our favourite rooms ……

Minecraft Club

Minecraft Club

This year our Digitech Leaders have been running a Minecraft Club for students in Years 3, 4 and 5. Each Monday the Digitech leaders gather together in the Tech Lab to plan lessons that are engaging for the students and also give the Minecraft Club members some really good skills when navigating through different types of worlds that they will encounter when using Minecraft.  We try not to do too much talking when we are teaching to maximise students enjoyment time. It was really wonderful seeing all of the students having fun. Sometimes we organise different competitions in some of our Minecraft sessions where the winner gets to enjoy some free time with a friend in the tech lab on Monday whilst the Digitech leaders are planning our next session.

Once we return to school the Digitech leaders are planning to run an advanced Minecraft Club for interested students who either have been involved in a school Minecraft club in the past or play Minecraft outside of school. We have some ideas for the upcoming Minecraft Club sessions like Minecraft Club students vs Digitech leaders in a PVP and a parkour session which is like a ninja warrior course but in Minecraft. In addition, to our advanced club we will be also running a new Minecraft club for younger students and beginners.  

Mr. M and the Digitech leaders will be coming around to classes to tell everyone about these sessions. All interested students will have an opportunity to apply for either our advanced or beginner Minecraft sessions once we return to school.
