#LiveDive, Stop Motion, Cooperation

This week we celebrated World Oceans Day and joined in two #LiveDives off Vancouver Island. Students were able to see the scuba diver and ask her questions about what they observed under the water. Students tweeted and the Fish Eye Project team replied. Check out some of these great questions here on our #LiveDive Storify

Division 8, Grade 4 class created an instructional video for Kindergarten students on how to line up using our plush toys from ‘Stuff the Learning Commons’

Grade 3 and Grade 2 students showed that Cooperation Counts and created pages for an I Spy book. They also included Kindergarten students in the design process. It was a great way for 65 students to work together on one project. Slide share of the book coming soon. Here’s a sample page. Can you find all of the items?

#Live Dive and Using Tellagami, Comic Book and iOrnament Apps to show learning

This week in the Vanier LC students experimented with Tellagami and Comic Book Apps to show learning about Knights. It was the first time using these for many students. We are looking forward to sharing ideas about what worked and what we would do differently next time.

Some grade 1 and 2 students created patterns using iOrnament. They experimented with a multiplier slider to change their designs.

We also participated in #LiveDive presented by Fish Eye Project: A Window into the ocean. Students in 6 different classes were able to join scuba divers on an underwater adventure at Willis Point, B.C. via streaming video. It was tricky to hear but we could ask questions via Twitter and the divers answered us. Check it out at http://fisheyeproject.org
