Chantell Saddler.'s insight:

 

Voki is a wonderful online resource able to be used in many different learning areas and learning activities in the classroom.

 

Voki is fun, engaging and interactive, engaging visual, linguistic and tactile learners.

 

A Voki can be used to state objectives at the beginning of a lesson (WALT and WILF) students can design own Voki characters to present to the class, and share information they have learnt.

 

Here are some examples of Voki use:

This seems to be an application that is becoming more and more useful in many types of professions. Let students embed this technology into the way they present findings and show understanding and they will be able to carry this knowledge into the workforce. It is a very practical thinking and planning skill, as well as being a fun activity. Thanks for the resource.

Reading multimodal texts are definitely high up on my list of important tasks, and it is sad to say that I have seen many classroom teachers skip over tasks that allow for students to create multimodal presentations due to time constraints or limited ICT access.

I agree Jake. I feel it seems to get a miss from some teachers. This video really unpacks it all and puts it into perspective.

Design a talking cat to present at show and tell. Create your cat by selecting from a range of elements such as mood, size and color. Choose a voice and background picture for your cat. Decide on a name that suits your talking cat. Select a note about your cat. Watch the animation. Change your design as many times as you like.

Seek. Sense. Share. | Baby wants, baby needs and teaching bits and pieces. | Scoop.it
Chantell Saddler.'s insight:

The curation process is described by Jarche (2012) and Kanter (2011) as having 3 phases - Seek, Sense, Share. 

 

Seek – seek playfully to connect

Sense – make sense and be empowered through learning

Share – share to inspire through your work  (Jarche, n.d.)

 

The sources that I am using to seek and collect information will be Google, Scoop.it, Twitter, Diigo, Pinterest and Facebook . To sense I will archive, sort and select what I need to empower learning. I will finish off by sharing insight on my curation page, working towards inspiring others I will apply what I have learned.  Resources will be shared on Scoopit, Twitter, Diigo and Facebook.

Via Ellie Ruby-Rose Rasmussen
Chantell Saddler.'s insight:

As Ellie (my co worker for a design brief EDP4130) has discussed this resource was created for a year 4 class as a section of our teaching resource. A great example of the many ways we can use Story Bird, a sample of what we expect our year 4 students in relation to our design brief where students create a digital resource to share their knowledge with other students about the causes, effects and possible solutions of water pollution. By engaging with this digital tool in an ethical and sustainable manner students will be meeting the Australian Curriculum Design Technologies (ACTDIP009) and (ACTDIP013), where students demonstrate their capacity to work cooperatively to plan, collect and present information using simple software’s to communicate ideas.

Ellie Ruby-Rose Rasmussen's curator insight, June 4, 2014 7:35 AM

As a small part of our teaching resource, we have created an example of one of the many ways storybird can be used.

This resource serves as sample of what we would expect from our year 4 students relevant to the proposed design brief, in which the students must create a digital resource to share their knowledge with other students about the causes and effects of water pollution along with a possible solution.
The storybird is just one of three choices.

It is my belief, when students are given puposeful design technologies tasks that have real world connections and enable online collaboration; a higher level of learning can be attained.

By engaging with this digital tool in an ethical and sustainable manner students will be meeting the Australian Curriculum Design Technologies (ACTDIP009) and (ACTDIP013). Students demonstrate their capacity to work cooperatively as they plan, collect and present information using simple software programs to communicate ideas.
