Hey all Des Peres are playing Feb 14 (Valentines night) at the Toff, we have called the night Objectophillia out of respect to all those individuals who have developed love for inanimate objects and for whom Valentines night must indeed be a strange night. Also playing are Splitfoot a great new Melbourne band
The kids spent some of time choosing photos that they could use to create a visual story. I created a folder and placed about 100 random photos in there. The kids then copied and pasted the photos they wanted to use into a folder they had created on the server. I think it is a really important to teach ICT organizational skills and saves lots of headaches down the track. Once that was done, the kids are going to import the photos and organize them in IMovie so that a clear narrative can be followed.
Soundtracks will then be created in garage band that will be used to enhane the narrative and finally if it is required audio recordings will be made directly into I Movie that will further enhance the narrative.
I guess the way to expand this is to hav the kids take their own photos.
Finally the project will be rendered down and placed into the kids own personal blogs.
