The danger is that teachers use
digital technologies in isolation,
avoid this, it’s a waste of time.
A Year 4/5/6 class have been focused on writing and presenting
a persuasive argument.
The children have been using a PowerPoint presentation on
persuasive strategies and an online interactive persuasion map
to enhance their persuasive writing and create a more
convincing argument. The children posted their argument on
their individual blogs and created a poll whereby other students
in the class could vote for or against their arguments.
To create a more effective means of looking at their peers blogs
and voting the children then created hyperlinks on their blogs.
Here is an example of John Bosco's Blog (Year 6 student)
W.A.L.T; write an argument using the correct structure and persuasive strategies.
Children should have to wear school uniform.
I agree that you have to wear school uniform, because there will be school time and
you don’t want to go in looking like an unrespectable person.
The thing about this is that they could wear their school uniform and represent their
school, like St Therese, dominion, and all sorts of other schools. They can put their
mufti clothes on at home. You might get teased and you don’t want to be teased do
you? Believe me one day I saw a person get bullied at my old school and they felt
There is a problem; because people need to wear their school uniforms and they
would be fantastic and handsome in their school clothes.
Act now! Tell your children to wear their school clothes then they will know they
won’t get bullied
And they will feel proud.
