                          „ICT for communicating‟

         Working towards level 5 VELS –
            ICT for communicating

At Level 4, students use email, websites and frequently
asked question facilities to acquire from, or share information
with, peers and known and unknown experts. When emailing,
they successfully attach files and they apply protocols for
sending and receiving electronic information. They
successfully upload their work to a protected public online
space. Using recommended search engines, students refine
their search strategies to locate information quickly. They
evaluate the integrity of the located information based on its
accuracy and the reliability of the web host.

                                                  Online Cartoons

WHAT ARE ONLINE CARTOONS:
• Interactive websites that allow students to use provided characters, objects
  and speech bubbles to create their own digital cartoon in LOTE

WHERE TO FIND GOOD ONLINE CARTOONS:
• Make sure you check out the site you plan to use before entering the
  classroom – some don‟t allow you to save or have inappropriate images
• Try: Learning Fed Release1 – English – Writing (CAW0029) – Comic Creations

HOW WE HAVE USED ONLINE CARTOONS FOR ASSESSMENT
• Year 7 written assignment 1 – “Mau apa?” cartoon based on Bagus Sekali! 1
  text and workbook

THEY ARE QUICK…

example:
                                                     Movie Maker

HOW WE HAVE USED MOVIE MAKER IN ASSESSMENT:
• Year 7 role-play (example)
• Year 8 students doing documentary of school
• Year 10 students doing documentary of „Ibu Kota‟

FURTHER IDEAS:
• Di rumah saya
• Melihat-lihat di daerah wisatawan
• Sayembara film
• Documentary exchange with sister school
• Iklan (obat dll)

                                                           Movie Maker

HOW TO USE MOVIE MAKER
• Take your video using a digital video camera. (Use a tripod. Avoid background
                                       Text
  noise and light. Use mains power if you can. Consider using a microphone)
• Copy the video to a shared folder which students can access using a fire wire.
  (Other methods may take longer but still work)
• Open Movie Maker and import your video
• View your material (You may need to take more footage and repeat steps 1-3).
• Cut your material. Drag and drop into the story board.
• Add effects and transitions to your video as desired.
• Add titles, captions and credits as desired.
• Add sound as desired. (This requires music or sound files to be saved into a
  shared folder, or the use of a USB device such as an iPod.)
• Save your movie
• Burn your movie to CD or store on the network.
• Considerations: Privacy laws, self conscious students and isolates.

KEY FEATURES OF A BLOG:
  •   Personal editorship
  •   Frequent updates
  •   Free public access to the content via the Internet
  •   Archived postings (Paquet 2003)

SAMPLE CLASSROOM BLOG:
  • http://bsc7l.globalstudent.org.au/
  • http://bsc12indo.blogspot.com/

USING BLOGS FOR ASSESSMENT:
  •   Field notes and journals (record of travel or exchange trip)
  •   Research Journal (record of the research process, to show scaffolding of learning)
  •   Learning Journal (reflection of learning)
  •   Blogs can be used to suit many different types of classroom learning
      (e.g. Year 12 Detailed Study)
(From Blogging to Learn, Anne Bartlett-Bragg, University of Technology, Sydney, 2003)
                                                             Blogging

HOW TO SET UP A BLOG:
Victorian Education Channel (Schools) for blogs supported by DoE
(http://www.education.vic.gov.au/schools/default.htm)

Global Teacher – need to email them to receive relevant details and resources
(http://globalteacher.org.au/)

THINGS TO REMEMBER:
• Students need to be trained and very aware of privacy (consider letter home)
        o They need to know not to use full names
        o They need to know not to give out personal information in any form
        o They need to know not to post any photos without that person‟s
            explicit permission
• You need to monitor their posts and edit any inappropriate comments or
  information

HOW WE USED PODCASTS FOR ASSESSMENT:
• Groups of our year 8 students completed an online research module which guided
  them to research information on Indonesian in religions (in English)
• Each group then used this information to write up a script
• Audacity was (http://audacity.sourceforge.net/) installed on required computers.
• The students connected microphones to their computers and used audacity to
  record their broadcast (very simple – stop and start process)
• The students then use Audacity to edit their broadcast and add Indonesian music.
  They then saved their final product as a wave file.

TECHNOLOGY: http://www.bsclotecoe.vic.edu.au/greenlush/index.html
                              Webquests and Webhunts

WHAT IS A WEBQUEST?
• A webquest is a tool that involves students interacting with online resources.
• A webquest assists with student motivation and creativity, developing thinking
  skills and cooperative learning.
• Designed to follow a similar structure, including Introduction, Task,
  Background, Process & Resources and Conclusion.
• Webquests often involve individual research, with students combining to
  in groups to complete the final task.

SOME OF OUR WEBQUESTS:
• Indonesian webquest on the Spice Trade (Year 12 Detailed Study) at:
  http://www.bsclotecoe.vic.edu.au/Indo/index.htm
• Year 8 webquest on Bali (Cultural Assessment Task) at:
  http://www.bsclotecoe.vic.edu.au/Bali%20Webquest/index.htm

                                                Using Front Page

WHEN TO USE FRONT PAGE:
• Front Page is the easiest software to use to create a webquest (the link below
  is an online PD module that shows you how to use Front Page)
• Front Page is also a great tool to use in the classroom – especially for
  presentation of assignments

TASK IDEAS:        TEXT
• A family tree or their own website on cultural information
• Anything which could involve more than one page (map of house with links to
  other pages that have information about each room)
                TEXT
HOW HAVE WE USED FRONT PAGE?      TEXT
• Year 8 Written Assessment Task based on the family. They created a family
  tree similar to this one (example task)
• Year 10/11 online magazine (example)
