Challenge 6 - Digital Footprints

Activity relating to 10

The Awesome ones are a digital class and each student has a computer on their desk. A lot of their learning and curriculum tasks are done on their computers. The Awesome 1's understand the importance and usefulness of educational games and apps and often use them in their everyday learning. Their mission was to research sites and / or apps that they use or have found useful in their educational development and explain why.

Zoe - I like Fun brain because it is fun and you can improve in your reading, maths and other and you can also play any cool and fun game.
Caleb WA - The first website I found was Fun brain. It is educational because it has books you can read, maths challenges that make you think and a other cool educational activities.    

Ashan - I think this is is a good site because you can learn how to improve your reading and writing skills. Simple sentences and Word scramble 2 are fun games on this site.

Katrina - I think Poptropica is Fun and educational. You can learn new things on each Island, and you will get a medal for each task you complete. The Islands Time Tangled and Mythology are good for learning about history while Astro Nights and Shrink Ray Islands will be a fun challenge and will teach you about Co-ordinates near the end. This website is ideal for 6-15 year old students so it will be great for your class. 

Hayleigh - This game is good for school because it has three subjects; science, math and english. You just pick the subject you like or want to learn about at the top of the page and it takes you there. On the subject science it allows you to do experiments, play games, read about facts, do some quizzes, make projects, learn lessons, view images, watch videos and last but not least, topics. Now that is just science so imagine how much things you can do on there!
Thanks for reading.

Natalie - This is my recomended site for this year. This game is fun and educational because there are skills for every age and it times you so you can see exactly how quick you were at the set level. You learn really quick because if you get it wrong it will give you a demonstration of how to work the problem out next time. It is really cool and you can pick which math area you want to work on.

Sophia Styles - It is educational. It has games to count money, and give change. That would help with your maths. It has history and geography games. There is a game called how to tell the time. That would help some people in this class. It has a building game to help you measure. Oh and it is free! Give it a go!

Wiremu - I enjoy this website because it sets my mind to a test and it is a challenge for me because I have to figure out how to get the cube in the hole.

Corey - I like this site because it is basically an online book! On this site you can read most of the books you want. You can join for free so, start reading now.

Awesome 1's - We use this site everyday as part of our math program. Khan Academy is great for practicing not only your math skills but science, humanities, economics and computer science. It is very user friendly and tracks your learning. Highly recommended!

Awesome 1's - Another great site we use for learning on a daily basis is Spelling City. It helps us in many areas of Literacy such as spelling, writing and vocabulary. We enjoy this site in Room 1.

So there you have it. The Awesome 1's have introduced you, the blog reader, to many new and very cool educational sites. Have a look and a play when you have some spare time and remember......Learning is fun!
