Reading and Writing for a Documentary Project

This is an overview of a classroom literacy project where students used iPads to create their own Digital Documentary. All of the student-created animal videos can be viewed at: http://vimeo.com/channels/animalproject

 

The engaging videos these kids produced required the same research, reading and writing as a traditional report. In addition they needed to hone the scripts of their self chosen topics until they sounded right for a documentary. This meant they had to write, edit and practice reading aloud and with expression - developing fluency. The kids really enjoyed this project and had something excellent to share at the end. I love the touch that the films end with several shots of the author as they worked on the project. A great model for developing readers in the content areas.

*DisplayNote: Present. Share. Collaborate

*DisplayNote: Present. Share. Collaborate | Literacy and iPads | Scoop.it

A new app that allows users to present, capture, share, and collaborate on ideas across any device, such as an iPad, laptop, Android tablet, smartphone, or iPod Touch. DisplayNote allows users to capture a presenter's content, add their own notes, save the session, or e-mail it for later review. The app works alongside any software application, so that connected devices can capture content from PowerPoint presentations, Excel files, and Word documents, as well as images, web content, video, and more.

DisplayNote is currently being piloted at universities, schools, and businesses across Europe, with pilots due to begin in the US this August.
