So DPL students....all your work can now be shown to the world with this website. You have all worked so hard, together and individually. I'm so proud of the way you all supported each other to create this fabulous site. What's really exciting is that this is the start of the next phase of our work where the rest of your peers work with you to continue to develop this site as the Sanctuary project develops.
Well done everyone.
Daniel, Elly, Imogen, Jack, Vanessa and Zach.....such amazing work so far guys. I've been very impressed with the way you have collaborated as a team to develop our website. Some highlights for me so far have been Vanessa's developing her work on the local flora and her interviews; Elly identifying that not everyone in the school community will have internet access and responding by creating, with her team, a newsletter that can be delivered to parents; Imogen's research skills on the Mullum Mullum sections; Jack for trying his hand at project management and attempting to keep you guys on a timetable!! Finally, this weeks highlight was watching Zach and Daniel stretching their IT skills to the max by trying to get some google maps images uploaded - not only did you rely on members of the team to guide you (take a bow Elly!!) but the way you guided each other to the best outcomes was great to see. True team work guys.
Hi everyone and welcome to our project blog page. I want you to use this blog to improve our experience as we work together. The blog has two main purposes. Firstly, use this blog as a place to write your reflections on what we have done so far...exactly like you would in class when you write your self-reflections in your other subjects. Write about how you felt, what you enjoyed, what we could have done better etc. Secondly, this is the place where we can share ideas and thoughts with each other over the next few weeks. If you're at home or in school (during free time only!!) and have something to say about our project (like what we should do next or a web address of a good website where we can get valuable information) then come to the blog and write down your ideas to share with the group.
Lastly, the boring but important rules..... We're here to have fun and work but it's important to stay safe on the internet. Absolutely no photographs of any students or staff are allowed without asking me first. It's also important not to use surnames of anyone (except Mr Carroll!) The last big rule we have is that we show respect to each other at all times.
So, back to the fun and work part....blog away....
