Mark, Room 11, Winton School. Year 8. Teacher: Julie Mynes.
In Term 2, parents in our community expressed a concern about scooter and cycle safety, particularly wearing helmets around our streets. Kid Safe New Zealand also sent units out to schools to reinforce road safety. We conducted a survey on 'survey monkey' for our community to complete. In maths we studied data online for accidents in school age children. We took action by producing instructional videos and posters to get a message of safety out to our community.
Ipads were used, with camera, comic life and imovies applications.
My poster was created in Comic Life. Some of the images are of myself. Some are from the creative commons site for safe re-use.
My poster is displayed around our community and in our bike shed at school. I have also sent a copy to the local businesses that sell bikes and helmets to promote safety.
