Creating Animations @RRIS

This week the DL’s have been using the iPads and computers to make animations.  They experimented with Pivot Stickman and Animator Free so that we could use what they had learnt to go back to their classrooms to teach the rest of their class.  Here is Alice’s Story of the Butterfly (it has a bit of a sad ending!) Brilliant job for a first attempt :)

Making Sign-a-long Videos @RRIS

Lots of staff and children at school are learning how to use Sign-a-long signing language and so the DI’s  thought it was a good idea to make some videos to help remind everyone of the signs.  We worked in pairs with one person performing the sign and the other person using an iPad to record it, then swapping over.  At the end of the session we looked at the recordings and worked out what looked good and how we could improve them when we have another go.  Everyone really enjoyed the experience and thought how useful the videos will be around school.Recording Sign-a-long Recording Sign-a-long

Esafety Posters @RRIS

From DL’s at RRIS

Here are a couple of the posters the DL’s made to display around school – we made 24 in total so there should be lots of reminders in classrooms and corridors. The DL’s also shared lots of Textease tips and tricks with their classmates to help speed up poster making :) Click to enlarge the posters.

Ofsted @RRIS

Just before half term our school was visited by special people who came to see all the things that we were learning. They wrote a report about it all and the Digital Leaders got two special mentions :)

Creating Avatars @RRIS

The DL’s wanted to have their own avatar on the blog and on their lanyard, so we created them using the doppelme website. We had lots of fun and can’t wait to show everyone else how to make theirs.
