This week we completed the second cycle of JK with an Amazing Race! It fitted very nicely with our WALT: testing a hypothesis of what success is. My students had to complete a range of tasks, take videos or pictures of the finished piece and upload them onto a Keynote on the iPad. It was a lot of fun!
This was a perfect lesson for my class! It was obvious from the lesson that I had designed the learning so that the children were able to connect to the characteristics (some easier than others) of being successful. Yuss! Big tick for me.
I was looking forward to seeing the lesson in action again so was disappointed when things didn't work out to check out Rm3's lesson. But I was able to have a look around and observe the race in action and check out the reflection part at the end. They did a PMI and I was really impressed with the reflective comments that the Room 3 kids made about the experience.
I had all sorts of problems trying to upload the keynotes onto youtube. The videos would only play sound off the first video on the slide. I googled it and apparently this problem happens when there's more than one video on your keynote. So I had to make a video on imovie. Band is 'Bad Rabbits' - totally awesome funk/rock band!
