Commander Hadfield Saw Us!


#NipRockArt students have made their mark!  Dean Shareski recently invited some schools to take part in a project that he created.  We were thrilled to have the chance to participate.  Our Principal, Donna Fry, wrote about it too: "Collaboration: We've Arrived!"  Today, she tweeted the link to Commander Hadfield, who watched the video and tweeted back!  See the story here:  "Out of This World".  Isn't it amazing to see the wonderful connections and creations that can be made by working together?

Listen to #niprockart student Hanna Dahl and our Principal, Donna Fry on CBC Voyage North:

    1. Thank you, but I can't take the credit... Dean Shareski created the project & Donna Fry (who is associated with Dean) asked if teachers were interested. All I did was film our cool students & send in the file :) Isn't it amazing? Wow, it's so amazing to be part of such a HUGE experience!

  2. I missed this whole thing on Twitter :(. I have been playing Minecraft, the idea is to figure out how to incorporate it into my classroom but the truth is I just love to play it ;). I am going to link the audio to my post too.

    1. What's wonderful about the whole event (and Twitter adventure) is that it's so share-able. We all get to be part of something so amazingly cool, and so do our students!
      Isn't Minecraft fun? Already, my children enjoy it & have surpassed any skill that I (don't) have. I am completely floored by the creations that students can make as well as all the learning applications. So much exploring to do...
