As part of our Fair Trade chocolate topic, we undertook a blind test this afternoon to determine whether Fair Trade chocolate is as tasty, or tastier, than other brands.

I hope that our discussion this week about learning has stimulated some ideas. For your homework, 5MC, I want you to think about this question and post a response to it here.

Write about all the things that help you to learn and also write about what could be done differently at Rosendale to enable you to become a better learner. Put your name at the end of your post so we can share each other’s thoughts. I look forward to seeing your plans for the ideal learning environment / classroom too.

This week we started using an online cartoon creation tool at www.xtranormal.com It’s quite a versatile, sophisticated bit of software that enables you to turn text into spoken language, choose camera angles and gestures and much more. It is a lot of fun, and at some point we’re going to be writing scripts in our literacy lessons and turning them into cartoons. I urge you to check out the site. Be warned though – you could lose hours on it…
