We used Popplet in class today to create a web of information read from Sustainability reading. Some problems arose with laptops not having up to date Flash media players. The other problem was the inability to embed due to not having linked the students blogs to the class blog at that stage.
Students were quite motivated by this medium however, and it will be interesting to persist with this. Next week I will introduce the Rubric. Might be better to start with non-fiction one. It will fit in better with what we have started. I will need to work on non-fiction one a bit.
