Welcome back to Term 3 and what an exciting term we have ahead of us! In 21 days time the 2016 Rio Olympic Games will begin so we will be keeping up to date with all the action that takes place. Together as whole classes, we will be using Book Creator to write our very own A-Z of the Rio Olympic Games eBooks. Our eBooks are digital and multi-modal meaning they will include text, audio, visuals and movies. Below is the short trailer we watched about the upcoming Olympics. We used this video to brainstorm events, athletes and countries competing in the games. You can also click here to find a list of the countries competing and here to find a list of all the 2016 events.
Next week we will continue to plan and draft our allocated pages, including experimenting with audio and visual recording. We will also look at NearPod and Explain Everything, so if you haven’t yet downloaded these free apps, please do so before next Friday. Please note: Although I used the blue Explain Everything logo, you only need to download the silver free version.
