Room 11, Winton School. Year 8. Teacher: Julie Mynes.
As young adults it is important that we are aware of situations around us and look out for ourselves and our peers. First Aid is an important course that should never be turned down. Dangerous situations can happen at anytime, anyplace.
All students in years 4-8 took part in a first aid course during terms 2 and 3. It is also important to know before we went on camp.
A St Johns First Aid Instructor visited our school. One of the things we learnt was how to handle situations where friends or family have become injured or become uncouncious. DRS ABC is an instruction we received, and want to pass on to others.
At the start of Term 3 our school received 50 new iPad Minis. The iMovie app is slightly different to that on the laptop, and we were learning to transfer our skills from one device to another. Creating an instruction video on DRS ABC also support our term topic "Whose the Teacher". It was our job to teach others what we know.
On the iPad we learnt how to record our own audio and add to the timeline. We also learnt how to trim/split video clips. We also created slides using the Comic life App, exported them to our camera roll and inserted them into the timeline to show the start of each part of Drs ABC. We learnt how to edit the Ken Berns effect manually and start/stop slides exactly where we wanted them.
Our video was carried out over many days/weeks, as we thought it important to be consistent with the weather and lighting in our video. One of the problems we encountered was windy weather. This did not make good footage and had to retake many clips. A disadvantage to imovie app on the ipad is that we couldn't reduce background noise. Maybe thats something for the developers to think about. We hope you have learnt how to apply DRSABC should you find yourself in a emergency situation.
