Digital Learning
WALT: Evaluate our Digital Learning

I learnt different apps to help publish my work, as well as how to research different information. Mrs Cochrane helped me with my learning, by giving me different Websites which really helped me.

The Chromebook really helped me too, because I could research words I don’t know. I could also research different information for my school projects.

It helped me learn new apps to use in my Chromebook more often. I became more Creative. It will help me post more things on my Blog.

I am pleased with all my work I have finished on my Chromebook. I can do my work anywhere, anyplace and anytime.
