Crew News April 18, 2013

Tech Skills
The first grade has paused our Expedition so that we can prepare for All School Meetings (both first grade crews host  this month) and Voyages. We do have days here and there that aren't filled with preparation for those things so we are taking some time to learn a few new tech skills. We started today with learning to take screen shots on the iPads. This will allow us to import photos of things we are working on and learning about into ShowMe or other tools so that we can share our learning. Be on the lookout for some new things in our Kidblog blog posts. We will resume our Expedition right after our Voyage. Below are some random screen shots of things we are doing on our iPads. These are just some examples of things you may see on our Kidblog posts in the future. We will import these photos into ShowMe and other new apps to use the audio feature to explain what you are looking at.
