Sign Up for your Reading Eggs Free Trial - ABC Reading Eggs | Where Children Learn to Read Online

Lauren Williams's insight:

ABC Reading Eggs is a great digital program that students of all ages can use at school and at home. The program is split up in age groups, the 7-13 years bracket is excellent for middle years students. This program teaches students about literacy learning which includes games used to enhance language, spelling, reading and writing skills. I have used this program whilst on practical experience in schools and the middle years students just love putting this program on the interactive whiteboard and interacting with this program virtually as a class.

Reources on this site are collated by grade and subject, making the middle years resources and subjects easy to locate. In the middle years of schooling, students should have the opportunity to explore and create using digitally enhanced technologies, building on prior knowledge established in the early years of learning.

Have students explore using the various technological equipment in their homes.
Lauren Williams's insight:

This resources asks year five students to explore technology at home. Students are asked to take note of technological devices used around their home. Devices include, fax machines, printers, VCR's, Microwaves etc.

 

This is a great way for students in the middle years of schooling to observe and record modern day technologies in their own surroundings and compare to the school enviornment. Learning is about making connections based on prior experiences and surroundings. Therefore, this activity is a great way for middle years students to make connections with the devices in their homes and compare them to the devices in their immediate school environment.

 

This activity is closely aligned with the Technology Years 1 -10 syllabus and Queensland Studies Authority Essential Learnings (End of Year 5). In this documentation, students are asked to identify and reflect on products and processes that impact on their environment and explore their uses.

Scratch: a programming language for everyone. Create interactive stories, games, music and art - and share them online.
Lauren Williams's insight:

Scratch is a great digital technology program that can be used by middle years school students (years 4-9). This program allows students to virtually interact and create and explore with games, music and art.

 

Scratch allows students to create their own digital animations and cartoon scenes, whilst exploring the world of digital technologies.
