  1. Hi mrs D I think that these video tutorials was a good way to teach kids how to use this website. I found it a really cool idea doing them on a iPad!

  2. On other iPads there is the app plants vs. zombies but on some others there aren’t. So I thought it might be a good idea to add it on everyone’s iPad because it’s a very popular game and a lot of people enjoy playing it.

  3. This video has taught me that most people say things online that the wouldn’t say in real life. If you won’t say something to someone in person, why say it to them online? Do people think that it’s okay to hurt people’s feelings over the internet but not in person?

  4. I will use this website when I have missed something in class. I can also find this website helpful to me because when I miss something important on when I was absent I can easily access it.

  5. I will use the class website responsibly and respectfully. I will also use it to make sure I complete my homework. I think this website will be very helpful since I do forget my agenda book from time to time! This website will also help me with make up work while I’m traveling. I can see what my homework is wherever I am!

  13. I will use the class website a lot throughout this school year. Some things i would we able to use it for and find througout the website are notes that i might have missed if i was absent, homework i forgot to write down, and when quizzes or tests will be coming. I feel as though this website will help other students and I throughout the year. As long as i continue to use this website, i think i will have a great and successful year ahead of me!

  14. Wow, this video taught me a lot. It taught me that on the internet people would say more things to you than in real life. I also learned that you can and probably will be caught if you are reported. (Teacher note: Read posts and directions carefully. This wasn’t the homework.)

  15. I will use this website to my advantage to help me on my schoolwork at home, to see the project, homework, test, or quiz is assigned. Sorry I’m posting so late, my Wifi crashed and I couldn’t figure out how to post a comment until it was late at night!
