  1. Hi Room 19
    Wonderful to see you asking neat questions about how to use you devices.

    One way that I learn how to do things is to try it out and see if I can make it work. When this doesn't work, and it does work more often than I expect, I then ask a friend who is already doing something or post a question just like you did!

    By trying things I don't always get it right but I do sometimes find clever ways to do things too!

    And if I make a mistake I have learnt something new anyway!

  2. Hi Room 19. Good to see that you're being so curious. I know my class from last year at Wesley Primary could help you out with Google Slides, changing your background and blog commenting. Unfortunately they have all left but a lot of them are at Wesley Intermediate so hopefully they will see this and give you a hand. Good luck!

  3. Hi Room 19,

  21. Hello I am Sophie From Paparoa Range School and I like the way yous have written everything down that is helpful and cool about the new Chromebooks in the classroom this year. I think that your next step is to write down what isn't working that good.
    You have Done a Marvelous job on your Brain Bubbles.
