Through creative arts, students able to express ideas differently.
Action Trailer "workpiece" by student
- animation, accompanied by similar-to "Mission Impossible" sound track
- Movie import into Garageband
Example 2: "Lively" storybook
Turn book into scripts... and turn into movie
- Students write the script, then they narrate story
- 'insert' real characters (students) into 'environment' (drawn background)
- Students acted out the characters, expressions
- Why do you choose to do a splat painting?
- What emotions do you portray in your painting?
- What colours did you use in your painting?
- What do the colours represent?
- Children's book published into a iMovie
- Students' drawing + narration .... turn into a story book
- Given a topic, students carry out research and put their findings into a story. They then draw pictures to express it in the form of story. Then, using iMovie to record the pictures, with narration - end product: Digital story book
- Students play (guitar) and sing the poem... composition of music to express themselves
- Applications: Garageband
- Idea: Interviewer... interviewing people all over the world about their religion.
- Start with the globe, map from Singapore to the various countries - interviewer to interviewee (dressed in the traditional attire), with image representative of country.
3. The examples were work by students that take hours to come up with the end-product.
What do I gather from these works?
- Students definitely love to work with media applications - which is the same regardless primary school kids or the secondary teenagers.
- On the other hand, how much time to be devoted into the production is considered as being reasonable, and not taken up too much time from the learning - curriculum-related knowledge and skill acquisition process? I wonder.
- What's the emphasis of the learning? I think it depends on the key understanding and skills of "that" subject or topic.
- Apart from the multimedia aspects, what else & how else have they done differently with other applications? I would love to know...
