    • Challenge 2 – My Classroom
      We challenge you to: Take a photograph / video of your classroom as it is at the end of term. No.. don't tidy it... as it is ;) Go take your shot!.   Consider using the panoramic mode on your phone (if you have such a mode) or use the video~ but make sure you get a snapshot of your learning environment after nearly a year of learning :) As you did last time, create yourself a topic - maybe use your name as the title as you might not know where / what you're teaching next year. Upload your picture or use Youtube/Vimeo or some other video sharing site to embed it into the forum... then tell us a bit about:
      • What can we see
      • What worked well
      • What would you change
      Next Semester... we're gonna do something with this information. :)

      • Taking pictures and sharing them with us
      • Reflecting on how you're making your choices
      • Sharing what the outcomes of those choices are

      Here's a blog post to get you thinking. You might also find that this challenge could well overlap quite nicely with Challenge 1 - If you want to start a new thread in that forum for a new term please do :)
