CONTRACT
5.6 contract image.PNG
Next week maybe we work on 3 group rotations - Wiki and Research - Ipad and Glogster - Podcasting Cybersafety

31.7.2013

We worked on 4 rotational activities today with the 2 grades.
PINK - Wiki and Research - we focused on the students researching their unit questions and then using a number of methods to enhance their wiki page - we wanted text, headings highlighted and we also emphasized the need for IMAGES to be uploaded that are named correctly. They also were asked to present their findings in different ways eg. on a PowerPoint slide then save as image or snippet and upload to that area of the grid.
ORANGE - Cybersafety Podcast - students were shown a video of the Audacity program to give them an overview of the program and how to create a podcast with recorded voice and music intro and endings. I then had the students look at the contract criteria for the podcast as indicated below and a made script so that they could see the layout and the details they need to include. We then focused on script writing today and saved into a member of the groups PODCAST folder.

Mr H
Scaffold Approach
We had the students work through the SCAFFOLD of activities and progress through the stages. We felt that this would allow us to identify and support those that don't complete tasks or get behind. They have a clear direction of whats next and progress toward it whilst we help support those that are having difficulty - it helps the stduents to learn how to Self Manage their time and move toward higher level activities.
Task 1 - Folder Setup as started last week - skills to set up file management and structure and saving to correct locations.
Task 2. Portfolio Cover with Avatar from www.buildyourwildself.com - Word Familiarisation and skills ie. formatting heading and text as well as borders. Adding a captured image from the web site through the Snippet Tool.
Task 3. Setting up a CYBERSAFETY JOURNAL to span the experiences learned through the year. Today we focused on creating a cover slide then a Cyber Tags slide with vocabulary about Cybersafe use. We used the www.tagxedo.com website to create the word shape then Save this image to folder and then Insert into the slide.

They then were taken into the www.wallwisher.com program to create a wall and set up the FAST FACTS for their unit. I showed the students how to add a note to the page and to Edit it as wll as add a URL for an image to that note. We had them then use the embedded code and place this into their Wiki page by copy pasting into the Widget and Other HTML option. I had them start adding wonderings as notes to their page wall.



15.8.2012 Mr H
Next stages of Inquiry - support it leading to planning for a Glogster Presentation Poster.
We introduced the Glogster program to the students today by giving them an overview of the program and the tools that can be used to produce an onlie Poster. I showed them samples of the layouts tjhat are possible and used the following Link to help
http://mrhstmarymag.wikispaces.com/Glogster
We went over the fact that we can add video, audio, text, graphics and perhaps animation but we need to be able to Critique a VIDEO before its use that it satisfies our criteria/question oof research. We also had the students design a draft docuemnt in Word or Publisher to outline the components that will comprise their poster in sections and content. We felt that this draft and a rubric would be great to guide the process and development of the poster. We registered the teachers and opened up a student ID whereby students can now register using the ID and what they create will appear in the teachers Dashboard for moderation.

Next - show how to reduce video and embed video into glogster. Show how to Publish the Glogster in the students wiki page. If teachers not in due to PL we can look at continuing their esearch and planning as well as work on the Glogster.



29.8.2012 Mr H
SCHOOL SPORTS - with the few students who were here we had them logging into their accounts using the teacher code. I had the students work from their Glogster Plan and place the various components onto their Poster. We saved and logged off.



Term 4
The school are preparing for a Christmas Concert - media maybe the unit focus.




10.10.2012 Mr H
We used the Lotus diagram template with the students today to extract their ideas on "What is Art?" and we went through their initial ideas for major headings and study areas. We then had the students open the template and start the process of placing these ideas and expanding on the areas.
lotus image from board ideas.PNG
We then had students save this and add questions and statements that will guide us in directions of Inquiry.
Teachers and I then felt that we can now develop Project teams and set these up in the Wiki as a PROJECT which in essence means they will have their own wiki within our wiki to design and create a piece that incorporates HISTORY, ARTIST, PERFORMANCE piece using this genre and come up with a plan on how to create the pages and what will be on thoses pages. We can then make use of the IPADS to crreate Garage Band sound clips, a movie for some groups, podcast, sculpture or design tools both on and off computer to showcase in the Project Teams Wiki.





24/10/2012 Mr H
The students were placed in their groups and had created their Lotus diagram and with other students had formed the teams and focus area for their Inquiry. These students are now forming Questions and Plans for the layout and direction of their Inquiry. We then created a Project Area for each of the teams and we placed the students logins for that team.. I then showed the students how to create new pages that are built into their project area and how to ceate a title as well as how to access their particular project area.
Next - we can look at the areas they are all using and tap into the tols and layout of their project areas as well as the programs and sites to develop content. eg. Garage Band, Movie maker, Sound podcasts, Painting etc. that will enhance their published areas.




7/11/2012 Mr H
We worked with the whole class on setting up the pages for their project groups and what content to place onto these pages. We also identified the Page Navigation Widget and that it should not be deleted as it tracks the pages for the project area. We went over how to navigate to the pages.
The groups went on with creating a wikipage for other sections of their document. These are then added to the project section. Students then worked on their questions and research for thse questions.
Garage Band 2 Groups
The groups were each shown how to open Garage Band and go to Smart Drums and create a beat and rhythm for their Song Piece. They then were shown how to record and turn it into a track. They then added Melody with other instruments - they saved and recorded the IPAD and SONG NUMBER - next will be lyrics and recording. I went over that this could be used to create a piece that can be used in Imovie or a component of one of their pages and added to the Wiki.
Next - groups will need to know how to use and embed the items they want to crreate eg. Movies made and converted, soound pieces in Audacity or Garage Band embeded. Art pieces we can create online and then embed.




21/11/2012 Mr H
We worked with the whole class today identifying what the groups needed for publishing onto the wiki of their research and Inquiry. We discussed the following and they wrote notes. We went over how to upload images, embed web code for online tools used from other sites. We also discussed how to download from GarageBand to IMovie then upload to wiki.

TERM 3 FocusOlympics and Personal Development


18.7.2012 Mr H
We focused on having the students log into www.scplus.com.au and go t the HUB then select the OLYMPICS RINGS activity. Their learning task was to complete the first ring which was a Quiz about the olympics and the second ring which was a CLOZE exercise involving reading an article or paragraph then completing the cloze which had drop down options to choose from. Whilst this occured we had each of the teachers place the USERNAMES into the Level Wiki and we Invited them t it.
Next - Rotational options and focus.


1.8.2012 Mr H
3 Rotational Activities
1. Superclubs plus where we had the students indicate who was up to which star in the process. we then identified areas we could work on.
2. Movie Production - the class has 6 scenes to work on for their production including facets of the Olympics Inquiry and also the healthy bodies areas. 1 Grade wants a Morning show layout and another an. Each grade had 6 groups to create a scene - today they used the template to negotiate areas and sequence.

3.Wiki and PowerPoint Research - we set up a T3 page for each students and they typed their names and formatted the headings. The are now strating to research and have a place to publish their content.
Help document -
We did 2 rotations today and the teachers will do the next in the next week.


15.8.2012 Mr H
We had mass today and did not do rotations today but discussed the need for the students to have a GRID that teachers could design tonight and we can then place this into the students wiki pages to give them the layout of their Inquiry. We can then have students working on rotations with superclubs and support the next stages, Wikis and support the students to embed video and other components into their grid as well as looking at IMovie on the IPAD to assist in the development of the students Documentary movie they have been scripting. Also discussed how we can use page 2 of superclubs next term perhaps as the medium to design their Inquiry.
NEXT-NEED to check IMovie background sound for clips and not all.
Also working on adding a wallwisher to student wikipages for those that are there and not at sport.


29.8.2012 Mr H
We had the SCHOOL SPORTS today and the students were shown how to go to the www.kidshealth.org site and how to navigate to the information on 5 ways to keep healthy - we identified this so they could then work on that component of the grid. Some students were shown how to go onto www.wordle.net and http://www.tagxedo.com/app.html to create word clouds to later save and embed into the section of their grid.
We then had the second half of th session on www.scplus.com.au which will soon become www.skoodle.com and the students will be prompted on the 1.9.2012 to start afresh or carry over their stars etc. to the new look and appearance. We decided that they should retain their work to date and then rollover into the new layout.


10.10.2012 Mr H
We used the Lotus diagram template with the students today to extract their ideas on "What is Art and Forms of Art?" and we went through their initial ideas for major headings and study areas.

We went over how to plug in the IPAD to the computer and copy paste the video from the device into the class folder. I then showed the teachers and some students how to use WINFF to convert the video and resize to a WMV file. We then inserted the video into their PowerPoint slide and played it.let your light shine.jpg
