Rewind’ed’ and Mash’ed’

Yesterday our class created some artwork using a simple checkerboard pattern and a 3D effect. To walk them through the process I used the paperfiftythree app – great to screen share with the appleTV and create your own digital whiteboard.

It was when I used the rewind feature (2 fingers moved in a circular motion) to show them the process from start to finish that I realised the whole process could be captured in a screenshare movie. And with a little ‘mashing’, here’s what it looked like.
So – here’s the process from ‘woah to go’ (why is it in that order? Nonsensical).
1. Create the drawing in Paperfiftythree
2. Screenshare to laptop using Reflector app
3. Capture video using Quicktime Pro
4. Import and create video on iMovie
5. Create soundtrack clip on Iambeatbox app
6. Share to Soundcloud and download
7. Add to video project in iMovie
8. Upload to Youtube
Phew. It’s always amazing how apps, programmes and sites share to each other. That’s what you could call ‘Mashed’.

Worried about losing an ipad at school?

Our school has had a large roll out of ipads minis this year and it’s been a journey learning how to
 – configure
 – register
 – store
 – update
 – charge
 – secure!

Last week we had one of ours go missing for a weekend and we weren’t sure how to find it. So – once it was found in the library shelf – we set about getting ‘Find my iphone’ set up on all of them. No mean feat!

Here’s a video I’ve made that shows the steps. I’m intending to share this with parents, too so they can have some peace of mind over the BYODs they send with their children each day.

Planning and Assessment with Notability App

I replied to a question on twitter about how I use one ipad in the classroom. Last year we had 1 ipad (now we have 12 which is awesome!) and I decided to make the most of it as a teaching tool;

 – I achieved my goal of having a digital planning and assessment approach!

Here’s a video of how I use Notability for planning and assessment.
