Roamer Packs It’s “Woollies” for a Winter In Moscow
Maggie Morrissey of Technology to Teach is working in the Atlantic International School in Moscow. She is taking Roamer with her where she plans some interesting science and creative writing projects. Roamer could learn Russian, but it does not have to, because the project also involves using Roamer to teach English as a Second Language (ESL).
Roamer will be making its first appearance this term at the Atlantic International School in Moscow. During the first term the children in Octopus class (year 5) will get to learn how to use Roamer via a literacy unit on instructional writing. The topic will be entitled ‘Roamer comes to Russia’. During this topic the children, all of them native Russian speakers, will be writing a variety of different instructions on how to make the Roamer move in English. Their work will be shown on the Technology to Teach Blog and project page and on Valiant’s GO Magazine and possibly on the Roamer Podcast. The class also has its own blog and podcast and where possible their work will be shown there. In addition Maggie will be creating an activity which you will will be able to access, Free of charge via the Roamer Activity Library.
