Lesson 2 Leaving class room
Tour of the School Objective: To take photographs of various locations around the school. Today we will be going around the school and taking photos using the cameras on our mobile phones. Our project for this half term is to produce a movie using photos we take and edit.
Please follow these rules
DO NOT take photos of each other or any other student at any stage.
Do not disturb other classes, no matter who you see in the room.
Please be aware of time because we will only be spending about 2 minutes in each location.
To start the lesson we will be getting into our teams and discussing our plan for today, in particular, where we want to go!
We are aiming to have fun this lesson and I hope you do. However, please do not get carried away with excitement!
If you are not taking pictures, you can do 2 things:
1. Take notes and observations while we walk around. You will need to have text in your movie. What extra bits of information would you like to add?
2. Be a model in the movie! As long as you keep your back to the camera, you may appear in the movie!
Download the photos from your camera IF YOU CAN. I will understand if you are unable to do this due to technical reasons.
Upload the images to the VLE. You are able to upload more than one image
Take the last few photographs you didn’t manage to take today!
