Google Hangout With Our Hong Kong Friends

21st Century skills are being developed in Room 10 with the connection between two classes in very different countries.  Today was our second Google Hangout where we shared some jokes and asked each other questions.

Room 10 is slowly getting to know our new friends at the
Australian International School Hong Kong (AISHK)

Carl Ohlson who used to work at Rangikura School is the teacher of the class we have buddied up with.  It's great to have this opportunity for the students to learn about each other and their cultures.

Students take turns sharing jokes and information with each other.

 We catch up once every week. 

Our next Google Hangout will have us breaking into smaller groups and interviewing each other using our Chromebooks.  We will find out more about the different countries and cultures that make us who we are.

What Sort Of Mindset Do You Have?

Do you have a FIXED or GROWTH mindset?  

We are learning about how our mindset can affect how we think about ourselves,and the impact if can have on our learning.

A group of 10 children had a go at breaking down what they thought mindset meant.  

After that we came up with things we say to ourselves when we have a fixed mindset.  

To help us be better learners, we thought up some positive ways of motivating ourselves when we feel learning is hard.

We now know the difference between a FIXED and a GROWTH mindset.  

We know we can change the way we think about our learning by talking to ourselves in a positive way.

After all, thoughts become things......
