Congratulations Mille! You are our first Homepage Hero from 9p!

ATL Area: Communication

ATL Skill: “Negotiate ideas and knowledge with peers and teachers”

Mille has shown a very productive use of Google Classroom in achieving her learning goals. Her three main reasons for why Google Classroom helps her strengthen ATL skills are as follows:

 

 

  1. Using google classroom allows my classmates and I an opportunity to contribute to the class with our ideas without having the fear and pressure of standing in front of all the students.
  2. Every student gets the chance to engage in classroom by adding links and additional useful information which could help their peers.
  3. Finally by using Google classroom, teachers are able to create documents that are specialised for each student. Then simply by clicking the ‘turn in’ button, it is automatically uploaded onto the platform. Compared to managebac (which is great for summative tasks, because it gives you time to decide if you are really done) where you have to click to find the file, then select it and upload which can take longer.

Keep up the good work, Mille!

Congratulation Louise!

ATL Area: Research

ATL Skill: Locate, organise, analyse, evaluate, synthesise and ethically use information from a variety of sources and media

Louise has demonstrated very well how to ascertain the credibility of resources in her work. In her own words, “I have used the ATL skill “Researching” to find appropriate yet reliable information for my tasks. For example, through using the “Scholarly articles only” in the research bar on google it was sort your information and only show reliable information.”

A great way to communicate online is by creating a blog. Blogging is like writing a diary, where you can see a development of thoughts over time. A blog allows you to provide information for other people and share opinions regarding the work you have been doing in class. It is also a great way to identify appropriate writing styles for different audiences. You can also upload videos and pictures into your blog to make it more interesting for your audience!

Well done Krishna! I really liked Krishna’s description of how he actually conducted his research, which can be seen here:

One of the sites I use a lot is ducksters.com I like it a lot because its child friendly and very easy to understand. Its facts are very reliable and it also has pictures for the reader to help understand. One of the best things about ducksters is that they have a really broad site it contains information on lots of stuff.”

Also, here is his description of how he feels that conducting research helps to meet the ATL skill:

“Researching helps support your statements. There are many different types of research like quotes and facts and much more.

Super job, Krishna!

ATL Skill: “Create original works and ideas”

Awesome work Daniel, you are our latest Homepage Hero! Daniel’s excellent video showed a really good example of creating original work and he should be proud of his efforts. Check out his description below of how he met the ATL skill:

In this movie I mixed a variety components, namely visual and physical (sound) to respond to the challenge given which was to imitate the desert island disc program. I added the medium of pictures to help the viewer further understand and create a more “modern” experience.

 

Well done, Daniel!

Awesome work Mitchel, you are our latest Homepage Hero! Mitchel was awarded this Homepage Hero award for his detailed description of how to capture video footage on a mobile device, upload it to a laptop, edit and publish. Check out his description below!

I created my media by filming on an iPhone. Furthermore, I transferred it to my school computer and into iMovie. On iMovie I added background music as well as overlaying clips. To share it digitally with others, I uploaded it to google drive and sent out the link.

He was also able to explain how doing this meets the requirement for showing this ATL skill:

My skill/video matches the ATL below because I have used various different types of media to be able to develop and finalise the ideas and the information put into the video.”

Great job Mitchel!
