This week is digital learning week #NDLW19 across Scotland, and we are carrying out lots of digital activities here at Port Ellen. We have STEM Robotics, Expressive Arts Green Screen Movies, Literacy and IDL with Google Meets, Numeracy Graphing with Gapminder online and Digital Story Telling using Sway.
As part of our ongoing plastics topic we are holding a Google Meet with scientists from the Maldives on Tuesday, linkng 3 different countries in order to find out about the latest research into the effects of plastics on our oceans from another island nation.
Generation Science will be joining us later in the week to deliver Robot constructor workshops for P4-6 in school, and P7s at a transition event in High School.
We will be telling superhero stories using Microsoft Sway and preparing to film our superhero tales using greenscreen and Imovie for our leavers assembly.
Finally, in our long term Endeavour projects we have to apply a new digital skill to our learning. Some people have been designing video games on Kodu; we have gymnastics, triathalon and world geography Book Creators; a powerpoint recipe book; microbits and electronics being built; and several imovie documentaries from survival to marine aquariums to magic maths.
