iPad movie making a big hit for year nines
We recently ran a program for year nines at the Light Horse Museum, Mudgeeraba. Thirty grade nine students from Southport State High descended on the museum to create short digital stories about the ANZAC spirit that count towards their history assessment. They worked in groups of four, and showed there movies at the end of the day. It was a fabulous effort, and most of the class had never used an iPad before. The school staff were very supportive of the project, and students were fully engaged. The program was inspired by the History In Place Program put together by the History Teachers Association of Victoria. More on that here.
