What we have learned after our first Blue Team meeting...

Our Blue eTeam met on Thursday for the first time. We worked on creating a Blog, we talked a little about digital citizenship, as well as trust with a group of this nature. We shared a Google Document with teacher requests (inferring, figurative language, and main idea and detail games for 4th grade.) All members of the eTeam have editing rights to this document and have an assignment to search for games before Tuesday's meeting.

We very quickly realized that one meeting a week is not enough. We will be sending out a revised schedule on Monday morning for all of the teams (Blue, Green, and Orange.)

Here is Tuesday's agenda:
Finish editing and setting up our blog.
Look at some of the links on the Google Document and talk about making links live.
Begin our discussion about evaluating links.

The next blog post and agenda will be written by students.
