Learning with a photo through animoto

August 5, 2009 § 1 Comment

My year 10 students were asked to teach a Year 7  Maths concept.

They could choose between a variety of concepts to do with positive and negative numbers.

Each team was given a digital camera and then asked to take ten photos that would help a Year 7 student to understand a concept. They first visited animoto.com where they signed up for an account.

The cameras default to a photo file size of 3 MB so the students needed to edit their photo file size using paint. They could then upload the photos and choose music to sync with their presentation.

Good times.

    Hi Mark, I enjoyed your presentation at ELH09 that Steve Collis streamed. I like the way that you are using different tools to engage students in math; really interesting. I’ll look forward to trying out some of the tools that you mentioned and following your innovative work on your blog.
