Celebrating technology in language learning

Señora Stevens is often invited to speak at conferences about language learning and international work in primary schools, and always enjoys sharing what we do at Whitehouse Common Primary. Last week she was in Warrington delivering a keynote about the use of technology to engage and enhance primary language teaching and learning. Before she went, she challenged Y3 and Y6 to create work that she could share using a number of apps and websites.

Year 3 used Pic Collage on the iPads to create posters giving advice in Spanish about healthy eating, and saved them to a Padlet so that we could share them. There were some excelelnt posters created, especially as some pupils only had 20 minutes as they had a swimming lesson. You can see them all here and well done to Lucy and Logan (3CC) and Lily and Darcy (3MW) who featured in Señora Stevens' presentation.

 

6lc adobe6LC on the other hand were challenged to use Adobe Spark Video to create mini movies using the silly sentences that they had written the previous week, practising their grammar as well as writing and speaking skills. As an added challenge, they used Autodraw, which is a web tool that changes your drawings into copyright free icons/clipart that can be used freely in such projects. (You can find out more about AutoDraw here) There were some very amusing mini movies created; Señora Stevens particularly enjoyed the ones that showed imagination!

We're really proud of the work that our pupils do in languages and international links, and it's great to share and celebrate their efforts and achievements with others on a national (and sometimes even international!) stage!
