Reflection on our new Chromebooks

Standard

Today we got our Chromebooks. So far I have done nothing. I can’t really reflect at all because all I have done is attempted to change my screen saver… unsuccessfully. Putting that aside, I think the Chromebooks will help me enormously in my work because they are simply better. I will be more focused because good computers are fun. I will get through my work faster because the computers run faster. My goal for the Chromebooks is to completely figure it out so I know I’m getting the best experience. I’m still not completely up to date with Chrome so these new Chromebooks have been proving quite tricky.

Disabled kids SHOULD go to school!

Standard

Heaps of kids I know always say, “I hate school!” “Do I have to go to school?” because they’re sick of it. Sure, eventually it might get a bit boring but an estimated number of 24,ooo,ooo kids miss out on school because they have disabilities. That’s MORE than Australia’s whole population! If you still don’t care, maybe you should take a look at this video.

Horrible, don’t you think? I sure do. But we choose to envelop ourselves in riches, spend our time thinking about our so-called “horrible lives.”

So take a stand, don’t sit back and do nothing. Help them.

 

 

Stay Tuned.

Your story!

The man had crouched there for hours. His thighs ached, his sides heaved and he was completely helpless. Jonny. That was his name. The sun was about to set and he would be in danger. He had been hiking, when he came to rest for a short while and he crouched down. A few minutes later he had found that he could not bring them back up.

His phone battery was dead and he was miles away from the nearest town.

He had to escape.

Please finish this story in the comments if you feel like it. I would really love to read how you would finish it.

Stay tuned.
