Lego Animations! Now Connected Learning at its Best!

Please note that at the last moment, Ben Gallagher was unable to present for this session this afternoon. The session will be rescheduled for a later date. Instead, participants shared their classses, their role in education and interests. They were asked what questions they might have in regard to learning and technology. The questions/topics of interest were:-

  1. An interest to know more about connected learning
  2. How to edit out small segments of a movie on a Mac computer!

Peggy George a regular supporter of Tech Talk Tuesday needed help with the editing. Ben, one of our participants suggested iMovie. Clever use of application sharing and collaborative discussions/suggestions finally worked out how to do this. A fine example of how amazing connected learning can be!

The use of padlet for connected learning between a class in Australia and one in Malaysia was demonstrated. The link to the recording can be found by clicking on this link.

About this session:– During semester 1 in 2014, Ben Gallagher, a teacher of grade 1/2, found his students loved to create with lego. They were really enthausiastic about producing a film in animation with their lego models and so they did! The film was then screened at a 700 seat cinema and received excellent comments and support from Academy Award winning animator, Adam Elliot. Please join us and learn how this fantastic outcome was achieved with such young students!
