What did the 5th graders do in computer skills this week?

Between October 6th and October 13th, 5th graders are shooting digital still photographs of the school campus. The tower, Victory Bell, Fine Arts Center, athletic fields, and the new Science Center are just a few of the places that we've been taking pictures of. The students really seem to be enjoying the experience...many have taken some really unusual and clever photographs using close ups and angles.

Next week in class we'll take these photos and arrange them in a timeline using Garage Band. Students will narrate the photos and add a little music--when they're done, they'll have a podcast tour of the campus at University School.

I'm looking forward to seeing how these project turns really is my first attempt to do a podcast with an entire group/grade of students.

Perhaps we'll start our own blogs next...who knows!!
