Into the future….. beyond

the Kahootz Project.

slide3

Taking part in the Kahootz Project has :

  • offered us a solid understanding of multimodality
  • stressed the importance of solid storyboarding
  • emphasised the need to deconstruct a range of examples with students
  • made us aware of the importance of explicitly teaching elements such as: positioning characters, framing shots, lighting and mood -
  • implored the need to allow students the time to reflect, revisit and refine
slide5

We were surprised by:

  • students use of music – portraying mood
  • creation of own music – garage band
  • use of own phones/devices – creating own files, animations and videos
  • work arounds
  • Our biggest problems
  • managing sound files
  • managing Kahootz on our school network
slide7

We were surprised by:

  • students use of music – portraying mood
  • creation of own music – garage band
  • use of own phones – creating own files, animations and videos
  • work arounds
  • Our biggest problems
  • managing sound files
  • managing Kahootz on our school network
slide8

What next – in our classroom?

  • continue to compare and contrast digital and print text – how each is read – analyse this with students – making connections
  • apply this new understanding to other forms of digital writing and creating
slide10

Digital texts are audio, visual or multimodal texts produced through

digital or electronic technology

which may be interactive and include animations and/or hyperlinks.

eg. DVDs, websites, e-literature, digital storytelling,blogs

Australian Curriculum English - glossary p. 60

slide11

We have :

  • used http://www.inanimatealice.com, created class blogs, wikis and websites,
  • We are:
  • participating in a pilot program called ifiction in conjunction with the University of Tasmania
  • We began by:
  • deconstructing episodes, blogs, websites
  • explicitly focusing on the range of devices used by the writers and creators
  • explicitly teaching the ICT skills – Powerpoint, Audacity, Picasa, Pivot
slide12

We learnt :

  • teachers do not need to be master of all the skills
  • to release more responsibility to students
  • we need to refine the reflective aspects – essential to allow students to revisit and refine
  • continually discuss new learning and understandings with students – make explicit connections for them
  • to expect some of them to achieve beyond our expectations …
slide14

Learning outcomes:

  • to apply critical and creative literacy knowledge and learning to digital texts
  • to analyse and establish thinking about the craft of writing digital texts compared with more traditional texts
  • to reflect critically on the devices writers and readers bring to a text
slide15

Australian Curriculum - English

Year 6 achievement standard

By the end of Year 6 students explore connections between their own experiences and those of characters in a variety of contexts in literature. In discussion and in writing they share key characteristics of texts by different authors, and the variations in ways authors represent ideas, characters and events. They analyse and explain how specific structures, language features, and simple literary devices contribute to the main purposes of texts and their effects on readers and viewers. They identify and record key points to clarify meaning, and distinguish between relevant and irrelevant supporting detail. They listen to and respond constructively to others’ opinions by offering alternative viewpoints and information.They select relevant evidence from texts to support personal responses and to develop reasoned viewpoints. They compare and accurately summarise information on a particular topic from different texts, and make well-supported generalisations about the topic.

Australian Curriculum - English

Year 6 achievement standard

Students create well-structured written, spoken and multimodal texts for a range of imaginative, informative and persuasive purposes, for a broadening number of audiences. They make considered choices in spoken and written texts from an expanding vocabulary, and growing knowledge of grammatical patterns, complex sentence structures, cohesive links, and literary devices. They use some complex sentences to connect and develop ideas in written texts. They select specific details to sustain a point of view. They organise longer written texts by using paragraphs on particular aspects of the topic. They clarify and explain how choices of language and literary features were designed to influence the meaning communicated in their texts. They plan and deliver presentations, considering the needs and interests of intended audiences and purposes. They collaborate with others to share and evaluate ideas and opinions, and to develop different points of view. They discuss and compare personal opinions about literary texts, and respond constructively to others’ opinions.
