iClassroom ~ Taking it Outside

We took advantage of the mobility of our iClassroom and took our learning outside. We had caterpillars in our classroom and wanted to do some refelcting about what we had learned so far about caterpillars and what we were still wondering about.

First, the children wrote in their writer's notebooks using a T-chart. When their thoughts were clear they video recorded their "knows" and "wonders" using the iPods and iPads. Each iPod and iPad comes with a still and video camera and records HD video.

Once all the recordings were synced to each device, students (grade 2) were able to use the iMovie app to put the clips together into a movie!
Note: all photos have been taken and processed with my iPhone using the instagram app.
