This pictures are from a work stations lesson in 1. grade. They have one computer station where they learn English, one computer station where they learn how to tell time. They have also one station where they play how to run a food shop with their own cash register. We also have one smartboard station. They usually learn math, Norwegian or English here. You can also see that they have an iPad station where they have an app for learning how to tell the time.

Today we had guests in school. They were English teachers from another Latvian region. Our tech experts Rainers, Igors, Anna and Adriana taught them how to make quizzes using some of the most popular tools - Kahoot, Triventy, Quizizz, Quizzy.

Safer Internet Day 2016

On 9th February students in Aizkraukle Regional Gymnasium marked Safer Internet Day in the school with various activities focusing on online safety, cyberbullying and using social sites.
Students voted for the most popular sites depending on how often they use them. They enjoyed voting the old-fashioned way because in that way they could immediately see which sites were at the top.

No one was surprised that the top sites in the 7th grade were YouTube, WhatsApp and Instagram. Nowadays students use email only occasionally because they choose other channels to connect with their friends. None of them knew LinkedIn, as it is normally used by older people. Also Google Hangouts is not popular with young students, and Snapchat is not used widely in our schoool.

These are the results how students of the 7th grade use social sites.

Students of grades 7-10 watched videos and discussed issues connected with bad behavior online. They also wrote down their own rules how everyone should behave online.
