Only the third day back at school and we have the long awaited Media Tools. My Year 6 children have started to use them straight away. They are using a blog on their e-portfolio as a reading record. They have already used the draw tool to draw characters from their stories. Next I want them to use the microphone to record themselves reading, perhaps a couple of times a half term. They will then be able to compare themselves over time.
The children have already found the microphone and webcam features on the discussion boards. They are happily recording comments to one another. They have picked the tools up very quickly without any formal tuition.
What are you doing with Media Tools?
