I have been wanting to get the Digital Leaders onto xtranormal for a while and Red Nose Day’s ‘do something funny for money,’ was a perfect opportunity. The students were given the outline of the comedy sketch and a very brief introduction to xtranormal. They then signed up, self-taught and colloborated, it was fantastic to watch. Xtranormal is still in BETA but has more than enough to capture their attention. With storyboarding, writing and then directoring, it posed some real challenging decisions.
With a direct publishing link with Youtube, I was over joyed only to fall at the last hurdle. As most of you know, schools are over protective and are our students grow up in a filtered web world. Even though they can step into the play ground and search an unfilitered internet on their mobiles. So their home work was to connect their xtranormal accounts to their Youtube/google accounts and publish.
