  40. 40. Katie Gomez A Journey of Learning Vokis, Wordles and Comics!
  41. 41. What is a Voki? -An online Speaking Avatar!  VOKI’S IN THE CLASSROOM 1. Make sure your school wide firewall will allow for recording and uploading of material. 2. You can create an avatar and add 1 minute of speech .
  42. 42. 3. One precaution - make sure that students do not record any information that will give away who they are. (name, address, age) Obtain written parent permission. Our students used their adopted Spanish names on their Voki recordings. 4. Having an avatar took away the stress of speaking in front of the class and it lowered the affective filter.
  43. 43.  Students created a “Bio-poema” from Paso a Paso 2, page 24. It is a wonderful practice that can also be used in 3rd year Spanish. After they created their written project, we then recorded in the language lab.
  44. 44. Here are some student generated examples The Voki only records for one minute.
  45. 45. Wordles are easy to make!
  46. 46.  There are many ideas for use of text using Wordle clouds. This is what I used them for: * review- using my document camera to play Matamoscas with the vocabulary *classroom signs promoting Spanish Only mode in class *iron-on decals for t-shirts for the class.
  47. 47.  Use this site to quickly ascertain any problems about student created word clouds. http://www.wordle.net/faq  More ideas to glean from these sites: http://www.ideastoinspire.co.uk/wordle.htm http://thecleversheep.blogspot.com/2008/10/top- 20-uses-for-wordle.html http://www.ideastoinspire.co.uk/inspiringwriting.ht m http://www.brighthub.com/education/k- 12/articles/58905.aspx USEFUL SITES FOR WORDLE IDEAS

  50. 50. Step-By Step Instructions 1. Students worked in groups of 2. 2. The comic strips only make 3 frames at a time. The students collaborated on a six frame strip. 3. They had to send me their 3 frame strip. I then put it on my class page on PBWorks. 4. They did an initial rough draft and then a second draft.
  51. 51. 5. Make sure that students have each other’s rough draft in order to have continuity of content. 6. Once posted on line to read, students wrote comments about comprehension of 3 comics written by other groups. 7. The students enjoyed this project and said the grammar was not too difficult. We were finishing up studying content in the textbook and getting ready for our 9 week conversational mini-course.

  77. 77. Using Photo Story 3  I made a photo story 3 presentation with beginning middle-school ELL learners for our animal names unit. It was obvious that they already knew the common domestic animals, and I wanted to do a project-based unit through which they would acquire vocabulary related to wild animals, specifically endangered species. In addition, the commands related to manipulating the program added to their technology-related language. They also learned a fun program that they can use to make their own personal or academic presentations in the future
  78. 78. Scaffolding sources  Before asking them to find information and images, I searched for rich sites that would have information about endangered species.  http://www.kidsplanet.org/factsheets/map.html  http://www.kidinfo.com/science/endangered_animals .html
  79. 79. Preparing to make the movie  To begin with, I pre-taught the meaning of these key terms:  Endangered, at risk, species, diet, habitat, and, not shown, threat and solutions .  I asked them to find and write answers to these questions for their animal: (in this case for polar bears) (I made a worksheet for their answers)  Polar Bears  What is their habitat?  What is their diet?  How many still exist in the wild?  What is threatening them? They went to the suggested sites on the internet to find
  80. 80. Creating a storyboard  To prepare for making the “movie”, I created a storyboard which had “chapters” with key terms for our investigation, for example “Habitat” Then each chapter had squares to show the need for photos which would provide elaboration on that term.  See sample storyboard below.
  81. 81. Sample Storyboard
  82. 82. Setting up their directory  Then I had the students create a folder named, for example, Wolves, and within that folder, create another folder for each of the following: Title page, Diet, Habitat, Threat and Solutions. I suggested that in each “chapter” or section (folder) , we would want a picture of the title idea and three pictures to show more about their section topic; i.e. habitat, or threat etc.
  83. 83. Finding the pictures for our show  Now it was time to go to the internet and seek out images of our animals and images which would fit each chapter.  I had a small class, and I was able to circulate and help them find pictures and save them to their appropriate folders. They also did a good job of searching and finding their own pictures. After they placed their pictures into the appropriate folder, they pasted the pictures into a word document. Here is an example of pictures for the African lion “movie”.
  84. 84. Pictures for the lion show
  85. 85. Choosing and arranging pictures  Then I got posterboards and divided the posterboard into sections for Title page, Habitat, Diet, Threats and Solutions. Each student had their own possterboard.  Then the students cut up the pictures from the printed word document and glued the pictures into the sections for their animals. The title page section morphed into an introduction section as they found many beautiful pictures of their animal that they wanted to add.  This is all “prewriting” work that preceded our work with the actual Photo Story 3 program. Now they had an “outline/storyboard” of their movie,
  86. 86. Working with Photo Story 3  This first page is the one where you will assemble your photo narrative. You can browse your hard drive and past the pictures into the linear picture line at the bottom of the page using the “import pictures” bar in the right center of the page. I made chapter titles by making a square in “Paint” and saving it as a picture, and importing it into Photo Story 3 for the kids, who then added titles for their chapters. This divided up the narrative line (picture bar) so they knew where to place their pictures.  Now, you import all the pictures you have prepared for your narrative in the appropriate sections. Importing pictures
  87. 87. Importing Pictures
  88. 88. Placing text on an image  Then you press next and you come to the page where you can put titles on your pictures. You can highlight the picture where you want the text in the picture bar and then type in the text, size and font that you want. It can also be placed in a specific location on the picture.
  89. 89. Placing text on an image
  90. 90. Adding Audio and Transitions between slides  The next page is where you can add spoken word and create interesting transitions between the pictures. The transitions give the feeling of motion and add an artistic element to the movement from still picture to still picture.
  91. 91. Adding Audio and Transitions between slides
  92. 92. Adding Music  Finally, you come to the page where you can add music. I have not worked enough to know if the background music can go under a narration. Nor have I added my own mp3 music to the show. I added the provided music from Photo Story 3 which you can find by clicking on “create music”. They have lists of music of different moods and genres that is fun to go through.
  93. 93. Adding Music
  94. 94. Examples of mood and genre
  95. 95. Saving your show Finally it is time to save your show. You can “save it for playback on your computer” and put it into your “my video” folder on your computer. Then it can be played as a video, and even uploaded to You Tube, although if you publish it beyond your classroom, you will have to deal with copyright issues on the photos and possibly (if imported) on the music that you use. You should save using the extension “.wvm” so that you can play it as a video.
  96. 96. Saving your story
  97. 97. Pedro’s movie   Here is the movie that one of my beginning students created about wolves.  Thank you for your interest in our Photo Story 3 project. I hope that you can find time to have some fun with your students with this program.  If you have questions, you can contact me:  Lindsay MacDonald  lindsay.macdonald@bellinghamschools.org
