An emoji can be defined as “a small digital image or icon used to express an idea or emotion in electronic communication”.

When doing register in the morning and collecting phones, in my mentor group we have swopped the 1-4 rating scale for a set of emojis.  The Grade11’s felt that they could express how they felt more effectively with the emojis and so I printed a set of commonly used ones.  After handing in phones and answering the rather existential question”Are you here?”, we now indicate how we are feeling by choosing an appropriate emoji.

My class is very enthusiastic about using the emojis and are keen to share how they are feeling.
