  • In my Year 11 Media class today, I had my boys
    1. Head to PollEverywhere to measure how they’d gone with their long-weekend task
    2. Make collaborative notes on Wallwisher about their task
    3. Play bingo while I went through the relevant information about their task
    And I did it all by providing shortened urls on the whiteboard.
    THANKYOU from a Joeys teacher.
