Green Screen: It’s not just for superheroes or movie stars

A group of Year 3 students have been experimenting with the green screen as a means to share their learning  this term. These students have been considering ways to evaluate, reflect and report on reading.

These green screen movie reflections were created using a variety of apps on the iPad (using the video, camera, drawing and green screen apps).

  • Touch Cast
  • Green Screen by Do Ink
  • Doodle Buddy

This is what the students have thought about the process so far…

See below for two reviews they have created. When the students create their next review (in Term Two) they will direct this (almost) independently, with the aim to become experts for the other students in the class, teaching how to use the green screen and its associated apps.

These reviews are not polished presentations but have been created in a short time frame as a tool to engage and enhance the learning experience.

Book Reviews

The Cats of Venus

Today the students were introduced to the concept of a book hook to ‘sell’ the book to another reader.

See “How to write a book hook” wiki how with pictures.

The Treasure Island: A Fun Map

The students shared why someone should ‘read’ this map.

As the students become more confident and self reflective, the presentations will become more diverse and ‘professional’.

 

Finally, students are presenting for an authentic audience.

Could you design an app or a website?

Your challenge is to produce an app designed teach another person about a topic for which are an ‘expert’.

You might select a topic that you have inquired into this year at school or from a previous year’s unit of inquiry.

THE DAY – IN REFLECTION

It is seems that “the best day ever” is how the students viewed the day.

See our published apps on PLANET BLIPPIT.

It was a challenging and exciting day. Looking forward to the students sharing their knowledge with others.

As of March 2014 Blippit has changed to Blippit IO App Maker.
To retain the work of the students this presentation was created.

FLIPPING THE TEACHERS AS WELL!

FLIPPED LEARNING FOR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

In my twitter feed this morning, I came across this tweet about flipped learning for professional learning. This has great potential but obviously required innovative thinking and ability to adapt. I believe that this concept would be embraced by teachers!


FYI – Flipped learning is not just about videos

My reflections on flipping the classroom

  • Flipped learning requires intentional content
  • Need to evaluate the content being taught
  • Consider what needs to teacher directed and what can be student driven
  • Need to change the culture of what is learning
  • Does NOT have to be solely video delivery
  • Requires flexibility, ability to be adaptive and access to resources
  • Need to consider a variety of approaches (situational)
  • Use the KISS principle – KEEP IT SHORT (rather than simple) in order to engage

Do you like to keep up with what others are currently reading? Do you get excited about sharing what you read with others?

Dogo may be the online community you are after. It was voted one of the “Fifty of the best ed-tech products for schools

We have a class page (JS Library) where I am adding reviews, recommendations and articles for SALC students.

The story of Cinderella – perspective

Consider the story of Cinderella. Add some interactive-ness, then put on DeBono’s thinking hats and you will have a recipe for expressing ourselves from the perspective of Year 1.

This is the interactive version the story of Cinderella we used to set the scene.

These are some shots of us working, thinking and collaborating.
