BUBBLE ON A WIRE. Alex, Room 3, Woodlands Full Primary School. Year 0-3. Teacher: Heidi Wilcox.
At the start of 2013 Woodlands School PTA bought the children 12 digital cameras to help capture their learning. These have been a wonderful asset for the school and have given many children a voice through photography. We have used the cameras in all curriculum areas and the senior children have enjoyed being photography buddies with the junior children.
I learnt to take lots of different photos like mouse, possum and giraffe shots. My teacher had magic bubbles that didn't pop and I blew them near a fence. One landed on the wire and I took a photo.
It was fun.
OOPS, WHO'S IN TROUBLE NOW?. Lydia Blomfield, Room 2, Makarewa School. Year 3. Teacher: Dianne Cowan.
The children have previously worked with digital images and cameras. During the school holidays/after school the children were asked to take photos putting into practice what they knew/learnt about taking photos. The children chose subjects that were of interest them and that they or others could use as story seeds for writing in the classroom.
I took this photo because I liked the view of the garden that I got through the hole in the glass. I could see that the colours in the hole where the glass was broken were brighter than the ones looking through the actual glass. I used a medium shot and made sure the sun wasn't shining into my lens.
ZOMBIE Room 7, Winton School. Year 1. Teacher: Grant Chapman.
Room 7 have been using the Penultimate app on iPads to take photos, modify them and write a brief descriptions about their work. Students perform this activity during the reading rotation to practise sentence structure and provide class mates with quirky reading tidbits.
FRACTIONS. Ben Hoffman, Totara, Myross Bush School. Year 5&6. Teacher: Mark Herring.
This was created on Comiclife as part of a unit on fractions. Ben used photos to demonstrate what fractions he could find in real life and he described the denominator and numerator.
STEWART ISLAND TIME LAPSE. Angus, Halfmoon Bay School. Year 6.
Over the last six months Angus has spent a lot of time mucking around with his Go Pro camera making time lapse movies. This is his favourite one - he set up the camera at the beach on a winters morning and left it there for about an hour. Once he had all his stills he imported them into iPhoto and iMovie and set the frame time for 0.1 of a second.
HEADS WILL ROLL. Aaron, Room 6, Makarewa School. Year 5. Teacher: Kylie Murcott.
Throughout the last 2 Terms the class has been completing a digital photography unit where they had to complete different challenges based on the rule of thirds, lines, angles and point of view, shadows and macro (close ups).
They took a number of photos for each challenge and learned to upload them into iPhoto independently.
DARE TO BE DIFFERENT. Meg Laker, 7NA, Southland Girl's High School. Year 7. Teacher: Sharee Ineson.
We are the only school with red shoes. What does this tell you?
We dare to be different .You want to stand out from the crowd and be known for the unique and special person that you are.
Red also represents success and the shoes take us on a learning journey.

NEW ZEALAND FARMING FUTURE. Jack, Halfmoon Bay School. Year 7. Teacher: Kath Johnson.
As part of our farming unit we made a farming magazine as a class. Jack's cover was voted as the winning cover design and was used as the cover for the finished magazine. It was made in Keynote because we find Keynote an excellent programme for layering images and text and there are many different layers that make up this finished image.
NO HELMET, NO BRAIN. 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.
