Technology with Year 6

What have I changed? Students have extended their skills from building with Lego Technics to using their models in movie-making .  

 

Some skills tried/ learned:

 Working in pairs/threes, first made story-boards [on paper]. They then made models with Lego-Technics and the like and used digital cameras to take stills of the different scenes making up their stories. They used Photo- Story3 to sequence the scenes. Dialogue[ and music?] will be added to complete the movies.

Why did this need doing?

The students were ready to learn new skills and starting with something they were confident with was the catalyst. They needed extending and those who learned more quickly ,taught others. Most of the students engaged whole-heartedly.

 

What did I learn as I did this?.I learned that students learn quickly and willingly and ablely teach their peers.They were engaged and excited! Using students' vivid imaginations and already attained skills,   something static can be used to make  exciting, entertaining movies.
