Yay – success!

I managed to follow my plan to have Year 9 French write and create their own animations using Domo. See one here.

Despite some initial hiccups in actually getting the site unblocked (during the lesson) by the IT crowd, they worked quickly to produce the animations. I continue to be amazed at how these guys can be shown minimal instructions on using the tool and then have it up and running within minutes. This was a really engaging task that encouraged collaboration and creativity. It was also based on traditional methods in learning the vocab and structures and then applying them in written French. I am adding each of the animations to a wiki I’ve set up so that each student can view and comment on the work done by their peers.

Now, what’s next for this week? Year 8 are learning all about daily routines and reflexive verbs – they are going to create a ToonDoo. More to come on that…
