On Wednesday afternoons at 2pm, students that are interested in sharing their ideas on Twitter can login to take part in @Kidsedchatnz. We are asked nine questions about a topic - last week it was ICT, this week it was books. We learn how to respond to a tweet, use hashtags, and read and like others' tweets. We use Te Mihi Community's Twitter account (@TeMihiWairakei) so it is a safe forum for us. Many other primary schools take part and it is a great way to connect with other learners around New Zealand.
This is the home page of Kidsedchatnz
There is lots of thinking involved when sharing your ideas.
We discuss our ideas so that they make sense.
