John Falkner: Dragon Show - Year 2 animated slideshow


Created: Oct 2006

Subjects: Information and Communication Technology ,

Year: 2 Level: 2

Teacher Comments:
This short slide show was produced as part of a Family Learning Project. Working in a school for 5 weeks with a parent and child/ren. For this session they practised creating a slide show and animating it to tell a short story. Parent and child worked together to choose a graphic and manipulate it. They used ICT to help them generate, amend and record their work and share their ideas in different forms. They used ICT to explore what happens in real and imaginary situations and talked about their experiences of ICT both inside and outside school.
The parents developed their confidence with learning alongside the children and went on to use Powerpoint for themselves.
The families found this a very enjoyable experience and appreciated publishing to a wider audience.
