Teachers integrating E-Learning

My main goal was to use E-Learning within my writing program.  As I saw that alot of my students could tell me good stories and ideas however when they were sent off to write this was not coming through in their writing.  Just recently I thought I would have a go at using alot more pictures to write about and I found one of my old ones (Batman and Robin saving a man from a burning building http://bethany-anotherday.blogspot.co.nz/2006/09/batman-robin-chalk-art-by-julian.html).  It was a chalk drawing done on the sidewalk.  As a class we used the see, think, wonder chart first.  It was very interesting that none of them picked up that it was a chalk drawing.  So we had a great discussion about all the things they saw and wondered etc...  It wasn't till I pointed out that in the picture there were people walking at the top.  This threw them all.  They really didn't know what to think.    The oral discussion was amazing.  I then decided to show them this You tube clip that showed how these chalk drawings were created.   

These are great to get the kids imaginations going and great for oral discussions.
