Through this year P5/6/7 have been using lots of technology to help with their learning. Some people have been using technology for their Endeavour project like Rebecca, Rhys, Sophie, Rowan and Taylor.
Rebecca is doing A documentary on Islay and she is also making a website. Rebecca’s website has made her endeavour better because more people will be able to see it rather than her telling them. Rebecca has already made a logo and completed 4 pages, 3 more to go. She hopes it will be completed by 31st May.
Rhys is doing Kodu for his Endeavour so everything he does is on the computer. He has completed 11 levels already and is hoping to create as much levels as possible.
For Charlie’s Endeavour he has learnt about Calmac and how long it has been running and also about all the ferries and boats, and he records this in a blog.
Sophie is doing animations and has completed 10 she is hoping to complete 12 all together.
Ciaran has made a sway for his Endeavour about his Endeavour which is electricity. He has found out about what electricity is, what electrons make, how electricity travels and how fast it travels.
Rowan has made an iMovie of her performing magic tricks.
Taylor has been working on a documentary for his Endeavour, his Endeavour is on different sports you can do on Islay he has videoed himself cycling around Islay using a Go Pro.
We have used scratch with Mr Shakespeare. In scratch you can create quizzes or games and anything is possible.
Figure is an app that makes music which we have also used in class. Everyone has enjoyed using it and it has also helped us understand music a lot more like crescendos and diminuendos which has helped us learn in a more fun way.
Garageband is also another useful app you can use to make music but you can add voices into it. Eva and Natalie have been experimenting with garageband by singing gaelic songs.
There are lots of things you can do in the classroom to help you with your work and most of this is using technology and this is just some of them.
