Point England Skype visit

Students submitters
Today our student submitters Giorgione, Jade, Helen, Stephen and Lachlan had a skype visit with Room 21 from Point England school. Point England school is pretty amazing because each student from year 5 up has their own netbook.

We asked Room 21 questions about their use of netbooks.  Room 21 told us that they use netbooks for their writing, making movies and maths games. 

Their parents pay fifteen dollars a mouth for three years and then the students have their netbook for life.

I really like the idea each kid having a netbook. Netbooks can make learning easier and help us use technology in the classroom.

Thanks to Room 21 and Miss Lagitupu for helping us with our submission.


  1. Hi Room 15

    Thank you for your Skype visit with our class this morning. That was a very interesting and enjoyable experience. Your students asked many thoughtful questions about how we use netbooks for our learning. Well done!
