Transforming Maths with Chromebooks

Today was our first day of using our brand new 1:1 chromebooks.
After an initial morning of setting up and personalising them, we then explored the apps that were installed.

Genius hour was great as we could launch straight into our google drive and continue working. It was easy to oversee the research with the use of Hapara.
After recess during Maths, we were exploring Pyramids and Prisms. We created a variety of skeletons for our 3D shapes. The students were able to photograph their shapes on their chromebooks.
Through the use of Hapara a slideshow was shared for all students to work on. Following the link provided, each pair worked to investigate a different historical pyramid or building.
The students could comment to allow each other to know their country of focus. They were fascinated to discover the many and varied pyramids around the world.
It was so quick to add their research and at the completion of the lesson we could view and share the collaborative slideshow.
