#ONEWORD New Year Selfies

What is one word that best represents your goal for the new year? You are going to use the Phonto app to combine your ONE WORD with a selfie and an explanation of why you chose that word.

The four parts of this project are:

  • Open the Phonto app and take a selfie
  • Type in your ONE WORD and format it so it is large and stands out.
  • Type in your explanation of why you picked that word and format it so it is smaller but easy to read.
  • Save your picture and upload it to Dropbox

Watch this video tutorial which shows the 4 parts of the project. You may pause the video while you do each step.

Here is a link to Mrs. Requard’s video which I showed at the beginning of class with the ONE WORDS created by the 4th and 5th graders of North Star Elementary School in Arizona:

  • What new skills did you learn about creating a PowerPoint?
  • What did you learn about ways to design a good and a bad looking presentation?

Minecraft Tutorials Using Explain Everything

minecraft tutorials

Over the past week or so, the sixth graders have been developing tutorials to explain how to create or do something in Minecraft. They took screenshots of the process while building in MInecraft. Then they added their screenshots into the Explain Everything app where they added additional directions using text and annotations. When their slides were done, they recorded audio directions.  I will be posting the tutorial videos below as they are completed and published!

 

 

 

Minecraft Tutorials Using Explain Everything

Our next project will be creating MInecraft Tutorials using the Explain Everything app.

MInecraft Tutorials 2015

Step One: View a few of the tutorials from previous years using the links above. While watching, please observe these things:

  • What things did people do to made a project interesting watch and effective to understand?
  • Did the directions and steps make sense?
  • Did you understand the way that they annotated their screenshots as they talked?
  • Was the audio clear and easy to understand?

Step Two: You will need to watch the Explain Everything tutorials to learn how to use the app. Use the app on your iPad as you watch to test out the things you learn.
