Primary students LOVE claymation. Claymation is an animation using characters made out of clay. It is a hands-on and engaging activity that is especially useful in teaching history.

Travel the World from Your Classroom: Free iPad Apps for Virtual Field Trips

Travel the World from Your Classroom: Free iPad Apps for Virtual Field Trips | K-6 Educational Resources | Scoop.it

"Not every school has the resources necessary to take their students on an airplane . . . or spaceship. The iPad can bring the world to your students' fingertips in ways never before possible. Many national parks and museums have apps designed for onsite visitors. These navigational tools are also great for classrooms who can't make the trip. In fact, a variety of free apps can be used as virtual field trips so that children can travel the world from your classroom!"

Could be awesome for task-based learning... "Voy a tomar un viaje a... vamos a.... etc..."

Bronte Rowe's curator insight, April 15, 2014 9:34 PM

“The most powerful and positive learning outcomes occur in those contexts where students’ knowledge and interest are well matched to the nature of the learning task” (McInerney & McInerney, 2010, pp. 104-5). Resources for younger children need to be meaningful but something which they can access easily. My idea for this resource is to use the Sphere 360° Photography App to virtually explore where the students’ families are from. Firstly, the teacher would need to ask the students where they were born, because it is highly relevant and students tend to be more engaged when learning is about them.  Then open up the discussion to include where parents and grandparents were born; which town/city and especially which country they were born in. It doesn’t matter if they children are incorrect or are unsure of where their parents/grandparents are born because the focus of this exercise is to discuss different places in the world families have come from. It could be a good idea to write down the names of students, which family member and where they were born (i.e. Gregory- Grandmother, Switzerland). This gives the students some vocabulary relating to place and family which they can refer back to. This discussion is necessary to get the students thinking and engaged.  Use the app to “visit” these countries, inform the students that they are going on an overseas trip to where their mother/father/grandfather/grandmother/etc. were born!

Dave Renshaw's curator insight, April 10, 2015 8:32 AM

ICT continues to be a growing medium in the pedagogical toolbox of teachers. Johnson and Gilbert (in Gilbert & Hoepper. 2014) agree in stating that 'ICT provide unprecedented opportunities for engaging students in learning in new ways' (p158). They further this notion by stating that ICT resources enable teachers 'to do things that are not otherwise possible and leading to better teaching' (p158).

 

This resource (with particular attention to Sphere) could be incorporated with an IWB that supports AirPlay (or any software the supports mirroring of iPads) for the teacher to display photographs of different countries, cities and even homes both around the world, including right here in Australia. The teacher can connect with the homes and origins of the children and their families which will make learning personal and engaging for the students. This will make the task authentic and learning meaningful for them. Motivation and engagement with tasks has been shown to increase when it is interesting or enjoyable for the individual (Ryan & Deci. 2000). Whilst viewing an image, students are provided with an opportunity 'to discuss their own family, including family members, household tasks and what adult members do for children' (Board of Studies, NSW. 1999. p31). The students can also be given opportunity to talk about their heritage, and whether they have history of migration to Australia in their family or even just simply talk about the changes in their neighbourhood or if they have ever moved house.

 

Use of the ICT technology can create some excitement and engagement around a simple activity such as talking about their home and their heritage.

Michaela Donald's curator insight, April 9, 2013 10:01 PM

This video is from a public dropbox which provides a range of informative resources from UNHCR Australia exploring various refugee issues across the world including child refugees, women refugees and environmental refugees.  This particular video ‘To be a Refugee’ is a video where child refugees from many countries tell their stories and the voice over commentary by a child explains the key issues and terms related to the refugee experience.

This video could be used as a unit introductory resource to present new information and familiarise students with basic terminology and definitions; an important part of the presentation stage of digital curation (Schellens & Valcke, 2005).   Groups could undertake a research task to define key terms or describe concepts and present as constructed into posters. This work may then be presented to the whole class creating a glossary of terms as a visual reminder for the rest of the unit such as UNHCR, UN Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees, ‘refugee’, ‘human rights’, ‘asylum seeker’, ‘detention’, ‘persecution’ .

As an educator that works with our future teachers (pre-service students) I am always on the lookout for great visuals connecting Blooms Taxonomy with learning and technology. In this case, the wheel shared in Allan's blog post will be a great example. After all, 83% of learning is visual.
