iPads!πŸ˜πŸ˜œπŸ˜œπŸ˜œπŸ˜œπŸ˜—

The new iPads we received are really fun. Some teachers don’t like them, saying the are a distraction, but the students do.
I think that having iPads and using them in class really helps with the whole learning factor. It’s fun to take notes in class with the iPads. It helps with concentration, and, in my belief, helps the information sink in. It’s also a blast to get to class early and talk all about what is happening in our newest app or game. Most of us do have an iDevice, so we know how to do everything, but this teaches the ones who don’t know how to use apple products how to use them. Learning and Engaging through Access and Personalization, normally known as LEAP, has some guidelines, but they don’t really ask of much. Charge the iPad, bring the iPad to school, don’t play games during class, and don’t break the iPad. Not very demanding. I think I can handle that, don’t you? Some teachers don’t use the iPads, boo, but continue in the pencil and paper route. Me no gusta. Several of my teachers allow a somewhat minimal use of them (as book stands, thanks magister), but we still have them out. Only one of my teachers really jump into the whole “Electronic learning” thing, my English teacher. She is making us write this ON the iPad. It is a bit odd, because we need to complete 26 lines, but we haven’t a clue how many characters are in a line. The font used is much smaller than my scripting, and so if I were writing, not typing on my iPad, it would already be 26 lines. Oh well, I will start to understand the letter-to-line ratio later.
The iPads are really great. I hope the let us keep it until summer! It is fun to learn like this. It’s engaging!

The Phantom’s Lair

The narrow trickle of a river widened, pooling out into a large cavern, creating a vast lake. The boat slid up the lake, silently gliding over the dark waters. At the shore, the ground was made of ink and shadows, an enveloping darkness taunting those who set foot unto its night sky. Large gates curled upwards and unfurled in the heaven clouds. The gates slid open, not a sound echoing throughout the enormous belly, like a wraith dancing through night.

What was that? A rustle, a sound.

β€œHello?” You call out, hoping for no answer.

β€œWhy do you come, child?” A voice crept out of the shadows, silkily dancing in the air. Your heart stops for a beat, not willing to contract, not willing to make a sound. But it soon returns, remembering its need to provide oxygen. To make up lost time, it beats in overdrive.

Hiss. What was that? Large ivory candelabras inch into the air. Whoosh! The candles all light up, unveiling the contents of the Lair. A dark figure, robed in stately cape and black dress shoes stands next to a hulking organ. The faceless figure sits down, and in slow motion, places his hands on the organ. His fingers then begin an unearthly dance across the keys. The haunting song crept through every nook of silence, eerily dancing on air.

β€œNighttime sharpens, heightens each sensation… Darkness stirs and wakes imagination. Silently the senses abandon their defenses, helpless to resist the notes I write, for I compose the music of the night…” You stand, enchanted by the soft voice and magical lyrics. The figure slowly rises. He turns to you, and you see his face. On side is covered by a pure white mask, and his crow black hair is slicked back, showing off his sculpted face. His mouth was set into a hard, tight line.

β€œWhy are you here?”

β€œI-I… Don’t know?” Your mouth seems to move of its own accord, as you struggle to control your sluggish brain.

β€œWell, you need to leave.” He walks to a majestic throne. It is swathed with ebony drips of fabric, starkly contrasting to the rich red cushions upon it.

β€œIt is rather inconvenient for you to be here, I have to be somewhere soon. Perhaps you can leave?”

β€œYes, Sir.” Your body slowly turns, facing the great underground lake, and the boat you have come in. Then, black.

Um…

Well, I’m going to join the student challenge. I know I haven’t been posting, but I’m going to try! It will take a bit of inspiration and perseverance, but I will try! Might not go very well, but, hey once-in-a-lifetime chance. Why not try? I’m going to go now, bye bye!
