  • Work in Progress Year6

    09/06/2007 Duration: 36s

    I have posted this piece of work even though as yet it is incomplete, my reason for doing this is : To show the main reason that we use these web 2.0 tools with young pupils - That the thought process and skills development is the most important part of any piece of work, the final product is rewarding but the route to it is always fascinating : The background to this piece is that the young lady creating the work is 11 and will be going to Key Stage 3 (High School) in September. She is on our More Able and Talented register for her ability in Literacy ( having won our Eisteddfod with a wonderful poem using evocative language). She has been using Audacity for at least 4 months now and actually said that she prefered it to GarageBand ( non of my doing honestly) in fact this piece was recorded on a MacBook using Audcaity. Jess has asked for a quiet room to work in - in fact all e could hear from across the hall was strange tapping and clapping ( we ask no questions in our podcasting club!!!) It was only later a

  • A Year 6 Work in Progress

  • Soccer Report

    24/05/2007 Duration: 02min

    **F.A. Cup Final Report** This report on last Saturday's F.A. Cup Final between Chelsea and Manchester United was written, recorded and edited by the boys heard giving the report, using Audacity on a Dell laptop. It is great to see how these 7-8 year olds have come to terms with using the technology - BEWARE : Digital Natives at work!!!!!!

  • ** Caution Year 6 Creative Podcast**

    23/05/2007 Duration: 01min

    This podcast is the latest in a series of creative efforts by a group of Year 6 pupils who are pushing the boundaries of podcasting in an after-school club at Cefn Fforest. The maker of this podcast delights in experimenting with what Audacity can do, including in this episode reversing tracks and inserting comic voices. It is fascinating to watch a young man like this becoming skilled in the use of the technology - a true Digital Native at the age of 10.... The picture is of the creator of this podcast setting up a series of comedy film shorts that he is making for our Making The News pages. He is also pretty creative with Powerpoint using it as a vehicle for his sense of humour. He is certainly a character who we at Cefn Fforest Primary will miss when he goes on to the Comprehensive School in September.

  • A First - The first (semi) independent Podcast by Y3 (yay!!)

    26/04/2007 Duration: 25s

    Today in class as we enter the final term of the year i thought that it was time that my Year 3 pupils started to produce their own independent podcasts on a range of subjects. Today I ran a short session where we learned the basics of using Audacity to record and edit a podcast. I must admit that by the end of the 20 minute instruction Jordan the 'Techie' for the podcast was already making just the sort of value judgements that I was looking for - eg 'we could do with shortening that piece of music', 'could we do that audio again please?' Which was great to hear from a 7 year old - so even though the podcast is short it is almost all their own work - Well Done excellent work ....
