    Great idea to use photos to show children the correct way to do a swimming activity.  Have you used youtube video demonstrations on swimming with the children? I might borrow this idea next swimming season. Thanks for the ideas.

    I like the idea of using photographs for the students to analyse their techniques. Great After all....!" A picture is worth a thousand words."

  • Stevie D commented on the resource Using Youtube to support musical instrument teaching
    Interesting that some music sheets needed to be changed, as they had mistakes.  Sounds like you are enjoying using the internet to expand your music teaching to the benefit of both yourself and your students. There are a lot of music clips...

    This is an ideal way to record those hard to manage assessments, a picture is worth a thousand words, so a movie must be worth 30,000 a second! My notes always end up soggy or runny ink. Thanks for sharing

      Hi MikeA,

      I am looking into a collabroative writing model similar to what you have done. I am wanting to improve student voice along the way as well as feedback from whanau/teacher/peers.

      How have you continued with your writing? Have you continued with this?

    • MikeA

      Regards, mike

      Hmmmm - interesting.  I have also been trying to get my students to use ICT platforms as part of my classroom teaching programmes.  There is a fair amount of learning along the way.  Students who have multiple emails can easily get snarled up using online platforms, particularly when they are working collaboratively with something like Prezi.

      Another thing that I have noticed is that students often really have little clue about how to integrate ICT into other skills that they are already familiar with - e.g. speaking to a powerpoint.  Lots of practice required!

      Great that both you and your class are learning at your own levels.  ICT is an interesting leveller where students often know as much if not more than their teachers, and are more than keen to be helpful. Great to see you so keen to use this medium. Keep up the blogging...I like the way you are letting the children run it now while you oversee it.Wink
