With a partner take some amazing photos of our school but be sure not to photograph our school name or symbol. Remember we can’t post anything that will identify our school. Only students who have returned their internet protocol forms and photo permission forms are allowed to photograph themselves. We will be using the iPad2’s to take the photos.
Please check with Ms McLeod or Mrs Brough before you photograph your friends…
We will be posting these photos to the Year 6 Blog so you’ll need to think of:
a blog title
a name for the photo
and a short description about the photo (and if you ask a question people are more likely to post a comment)
Here’s an example…
I spy with my little eye something beginning with…B
It’s Grade 6 and its looking like its going to be a great year…
School Captains and House Captains, Grade 6 Camp and the new and exciting Bring Your Own Device or One to One iPads in Grade 5 and 6.
We are very excited in Info Lit to be part of such a ground breaking initiative…
We look forward to our first lesson when we get to personalise the new devices ready for learning, communicating, investigating and creating.
Here’s what a few of the teachers have been saying…
‘The iPad is the ultimate all in one device, when I used to do movie making with grade 5 we would spend weeks with multiple pieces of equipment and different software before we had our finished product. Now we can make a movie in an afternoon and that is just the beginning…’ Mrs McKee
‘Each student can use their iPad to take their learning in their own direction – to follow their passions.’ Ms McLeod
‘The iPads are an additional opportunity to engage students, make it more relevant and improve educational achievements.’ Mrs Brough
‘With every student having an iPad, we have the ability to present our students so many new and amazing opportunities to learn.’ Mr Kenny
‘The kids in 6MA have been really excited about using their ipads in class. We have written our holiday letters on them, designed posters for our school values on them and added many events into our calendar to help keep us organised. We are all really enthusiastic to keep using the ipads to help us with our learning.’ Miss Morgan
To finish off Term 3 the Grade 6 kids held an APP EXPO for their teachers, Mr Daly and Ms Jones.
After spending a couple of lessons selecting apps and making advertising posters on the iPads for their chosen app, the grade 6’s had to sell their app to an audience. They were attempting to convince their teachers to add some educational as well as fun apps to the classroom iPads.
The 6’s definitley knew all about their chosen apps. They were able to show as well as talk about the app. They knew its educational value, its features as well as improvements that could be made.
As Info Lit Teachers we couldn’t of been prouder. It was pleasing to move around the room talking to the kids and realising how much they have learnt so far this year 🙂 🙂
