Another RSS Moment

January 23, 2009 § Leave a comment

If you are not yet an RSS fan then please considered it. I regularly get ideas, information, CPD and personal enjoyment from my RSS reading and plenty of education gems.

We have been introducing a wide range of Digital Leader activities during our Wednesday sessions. The preparation has been a little lose, but certainly varied and very well received by the students. As an observation our ICT enthusiasts have fractures and have found their own neiches and have tended to want to stick with it. These groups are often age dependent but not always. We have our Digital artists, using GIMP, our corner of Year 7/8 programmers using Alice, our problem solvers who like Lightbot and our budding PSM animators (also lunchtime regulars….. its has been relatively unstructured and we know we need to design a curriculum for next year. In fact, this weekend I intend to create a new page to keep a track of ideas.

So there it was, another RSS moment. We spoke about introducing some sound work. We have looked at mics, talking tins and such like, using, creative and editing audio is a great hook but I still felt we needed lesson bait. For sure, you can dangle a hook, but sometimes we, as teachers, needs some more. Ding! – Ringtones. I just don’t know why I didnt think about it sooner, promoted by the link makeownringtone. I let you know how we get on. I fear we wont get the students away from the idea and onto other audio tasks.
