Yesterday, one of our teachers bought paint, brushes and rollers to spruce up his classroom. I couldn’t see this happening in the private system. I may be wrong. Dany helps me out quite a bit with technology matters. So I stopped what I was doing and helped him out. Painting raw brick walls was going to be a two day job.
When I got home from painting, apart from the importance of learning spaces, I had iMotion on my mind. Mr Robbo The PE Geek alerted me to this app (through his blog) and I thought this was a good opportunity to try it out. Today I took my iPad with me and set up the iMotion app for time laps photography. It provided us with some fun on the day. We were all impressed with the end result. I also learnt how to upload a video to Youtube. I can think of a number of uses for this app at school and I think the students will take to it.
Many other teachers were at school today. The day before Australia Day. Two days before we start work. Some were preparing their presentations for Friday. Others were getting their resources in order for the students, who start the following Monday. I am excited about what 2012 will bring.
