Technology is a very important part of the learning in Division 1.But before we can get started on using some of the tools at our fingertips, students needed to practise logging into their gmail accounts and emailing me to connect. One of the first rules we learned two weeks ago was to write down passwords somewhere safe but accessible. Some students struggled today and were unable to log on as they did not remember their passwords. A great real life example.

Comment: In class we talked about expectations that society has put on both males and females ie. boys need to be tough, they shouldn't show their emotions; girls should be girly, and its okay to be emotional. Where do you think these stereotypes have come from? How long have they been around? Do you think they are changing, can they be changed? Should they be changed? Some deep thinking on this topic tonight.
