Trying it out

Today I had the opportunity to use an hour to work with a group of students in my class. They were to make a slide show in kid-pix. We started by making a story board. They wanted to make a butterfly life cycle. It took a while for them to understand that each stage had to be placed in a different box. We talked about the steps involved in making the slide show. They were pretty good because they did remember most of it. Well after that they started on their picture. I noticed that they found it difficult to use the drawing tools to make tidy, recognisable pictures. They would need a lot of practise to create better ones. They could also use a mouse though. Each of them completed 1-2 pictures and recorded their voices and saved their work. It was a fruitful session! Wish I had more time to work with kids using tech. It sure is fun!!!!!
