Laptop learning
Posted by: Justina Spencer
A pupil at Salford Primary is typing in "Crazy disco man cartoon" into Google on his laptop.

"What are you doing?" I ask.

"I'm looking for images to go with my reading," he says, not taking his eyes off the screen as dozens of small cartoons appear.

He explains he will copy and paste his chosen image into the programme he is using.

"Oh," I say, "is it difficult?" feeling a little like I'm back at school myself.

"Not really."

I'm in room 6, a bustling combined year 5 and 6 class, which is the first primary class in Southland, and one of very few in the South Island, where each pupil has their own laptop and learning is centred around using it.
