Movie Making At AAM

A group of our Grade 5 students have been working hard at collecting and editing footage for our Taaleem Movie Competition - A Day In The Life Of (Our School).
It amazed me how our young students could navigate around their iPads, using tools for interviews, film editing and working on sound.
Here is the final clip.  It was a joint effort between our Grade 5 SOAR girls, Ms. Kim and Ms. Nadene.
I believe the hardest part was limiting the running time to under 3 minutes. We look forward to hearing the results.

Authors Integrating Publishing Programs and apps.

Grade 4 students are working on researching inventions and will write their own book on their findings. Last year they wrote books on influential women in the Middle East. They are working with free software available online called Riot Photobooks .This year, apart from working on a new topic, they will also be using a timeline app to reflect an element of where there inventors fit in, in history.
Time Line is a free app which allows for collection of images and text in a time line format. It is a wonderful visual tool to help students understand their place in time.
