The children in P4 have been very lucky to be chosen to take part in a digital literacy project with the A.M.M.A Centre. Grainne comes in each week and shows us different aspects of using ICT.
Day 1: Amazing Archetecture
The children were spilt into groups. Each group chose a building they liked and used Ipads to research information such as where it was built?, why it was built?, when it was built? and some interesting facts. They got the chance to explore how large buildings are made and operate with Skyscrapers app.
Day 2: Deconstructing Media
The children had the opportunity to see the different kinds of shots that are used in a range of different video/ movie presentations. The children went outside to take photographs in a range of different styled shots.
Day 3: Scripting & Storyboarding
The children planned their scripts using the facts sheets they had created on each of their famous buildings. They then had to story board their presentations.
Day 4 : Animation
Grainne introduced the children to an app called ISopMotion. In groups the children experimented with the app and made some small movies.
Day 5: E Books
The children created "E Books" using book creator. They created journals detailing the work they had done during the project.
Day 6: Green Screening
The children had a great time making their presentations of famous buildings from around the world. They worked really well together in their teams.
Day 7: Editing
The children worked independently to create their own movie presentation. They had to use iMovie to piece together all their video clips from green screen. They completed the editing by adding in music and sound effects.
