What You Read Now, Is What We Were Then!

This is a journey through our own journey through our one on one laptops. We want our VOICE to be heard. Thanks for listening!

We made this on a website called picnik. What you do is you take a picture and upload it to the website. Then you can write on it or make it in different effects. You can put stickers on it and crop it. It is really easy to use because you can just click on what you want, and most of it is free, but if you want special effects you can buy the premium effects. The link to this website is: Picnik


This website is really usful to me. You can write any message and make it really cool looking. For my friend's birthday I sent on to her that said Happy Birthday! It is something that doesn't take much time, but it can look like it and mean a lot. I made another one for my friend and she liked it so much she kept it as her background. On the side bar you will see a pink on that says VM Web Watch. They are so easy to make and put on a blog or anything really. The only thing that you have to do differently is that you have to make it smaller to fit. It would be great for holidays! Here is the link: Textanim

What one on one Laptops means to me

When I think about the past, everything is different. The way I learned, what I do with my free time. These computers made me see the future more than anything else really could. It's changed my learning so much. I know way more about the computers, I feel more confident going into the real world. I feel proud to be able to enjoy these laptops. Some people may disuse the privilege of having the computers, but that doesn't stop them from learning about them, some cases, disuse of the computers just means learning more about them. I am so lucky to have these computers and be able to learn like this. So I think that the meaning of this blog is to tell other people what I learn, and different ways that I learn it. To show how these are helping me and teaching me new things. I just want to thing everyone who is apart of this opportunity for me and all other kids whose education has changed in the best way it could. Thank you!

Befunky is an awesome website that you can use to make your pictures look really cool with special effects. There is different effects that you can do and then there is different color themes and things such as that. It is also really easy to use and make your photos look awesome. Here is an example!
