Today in the digital learning committeewe were learning how to email posters to Miss Burleigh on glow. We were making posters for internet safety and we were also making a PowerPoint and a quiz to teach the rest of the school about internet safety. We watched a video about a boy and a girl playing a game on the internet. They were animal characters and a person who was pretending to be someone else was asking the boy and girl for personal information. The little boy thought that the person was taking him to the treasure but he was taking them to danger.
P2 have been learning all about the weather. We learned about weather scientists called meteorologists who study the weather and predict what it will be like. This is called a weather forecast. We enjoyed making our own weather station and presenting the weather on our very own ‘Catrine News’.
Have a a look at one of our meteorologists, Kiara, in action.
As part of Digital Learning Week 2019, we had the Hopscotch Theatre Company visit the school yesterday. We were learning all about internet safety and the best ways to stay safe online. We learned that you should never give out your personal information & that you should always tell an adult if something happens online.
The digital learning committee were learning about Keynote. They created their own Keynotes, all about the people in their group.
Stuart and Kerr started to create an iMovie documenting our Digital Learning Journey so far. They have been interviewing the children and Mrs Govans about the use of Digital Technology within our school.
Today we were learning about the use of QR codes and Keynote. The P1 children in our committee chose some of their favourite books from the reading area in their class. Some of the older children then created iMovies of them reading the book. They then uploaded their video into a Sway, copied the link and created a QR code. They then stuck the QR code on to the book. This allowed the other children to scan the code and have an audio recording of the book read to them. The P1 children had great fun listening to the stories this afternoon. The rest of the committee designed their own characters and created an animation using Keynote.
