Having registered for animoto about two weeks ago I was really pleased when one teacher said that she would like to try creating some book trailers with a small group of Year 9 students. The students were thrilled with their results. We did feel that it would be very difficult to manage this activity with a class of 30 students!

Lemony Snicket trailer

Maria's trailer

Using web 2.0

Success this week, or at least the seeds of it. A history teacher is going to use voicethread for a two lesson module on turning points of World War II. For the past 14ish years they have been using a prepared ppt with maps of Europe on to write 40 words about each turning point. This group are going to try doing a similar thing with voicethread.
I just hope the technology works on our pcs.
