ICT in Term Three

In ICT, starting Tuesday, we will be learning to use iMovie to make an advertisement for Hamilton. This to help us round up our inquiry unit before we change it slightly to investigate myths relating to the Waikato and some scientific explanations relating to how the river got where it is.
In iMovie, you will need to use still images, related text and to do this you will need to have an idea of what you want to achieve before you begin, so think it over. What would you include to portray Hamilton as an interesting place? How would you include words to bring the photos alive?
We can use photos we already have from our scavenger hunt. We can use photos from the photo competition we have been part of in the riverside cluster. we can use images from the internet. if you're really nice, you could send me off with my trusty camera to snap away at specific locations on your behalf. you may of course take your own photos, but you'll have to be quick and have to get them to school somehow. can you suggest all the ways that could be done, please?

You could bring them in on a disk or on your digital camera and if mrs McCullagh was in a good mood she might help you to put them onto the computer, or somebody else genius with computers could.

Can we make movies! I can ake superhero movies! Heres how:

1) To make someone jump very high just make him jump down somewhere high, then press the reverse button!

2) You can make other powers using the effects from Imovie, here are just some examples!

Power of Weather: Rain and thunder effect
Power of Strength: Use earthquack effect

Could we make some movies after the slideshows?

Just a question!

This is a cool as idea!!! I love ICT sometimes especially when it's extra fun and this looks extra fun!!! And if you had to bring your own photos then you could bring them in on a disc or digital camera, or you could email you.

Mr Woodcock.
I think that at the end of the day you can ask us of some places to take pictures and then after school use your amazingly wonderful skills with the camera to go take the pictures.

We could probably go to places in Hamilton and take photos on a trip or we could bring on a disk.

It's gonna be fun making imovies, i made one before, it's cool

ash said...

im looking forward to making imovies by the way are imovies like slide shows if they are still pics

c u in class
p.s does many one no what an m p 4 player

Donkeyla (Aly-Blobber) said...

Ash, I am pretty sure it is like an mp3 player but is a lot flasher, like with video,better sound and loads more.
Plus me and Hannah might be going into town (might, if it is alright with our parentsk, wich im sure it will be) and take pictures for our i-movie.
P.S. I downloaded Gmaker 6 the thing we did at the uni but Gmaker6 is a leval up.
See Ya'll at school tomorow

Sig said...

Aly-blobber, I guess it's a good idea.

Mr Woody said...

allyblob - bring the scavenger hunt pics please - same to all of you. i can't find them at school.
sog - glad you're enthused.
blondbob - great idea - i liked your decisiveness.
sk8r - do your own thinking. nice to see you posting.

you kids rock - bring on the creativity - but think things through, make a plan. consider your audience and what suits the needs of the project.
get stuck into the imovie and that film comp idea. i also found some podcasting info today that will really help. i think.

Horsegirl said...

Cool! Sounds fun! I like howdys idea. Cool donkyla!

dan said...

what do you think would be really good pics of hamilton becuase i can not think any places

【※ 『§mr. brainy§』 ※】 said...

who is anonymus?

Mr Woody said...

as i explained in iCT this morning, mr brainy, anonymous is a spammer who is trying to annoy us, or get us to fall into his trap to infect us with viruses,or something.

dan - you need to be more creativ ena dthink of your own possibilities for hamilton photos -we have been studying it for months, you have been on fieldtrips, and you have a family and friends to discuss it with. as a GATE student you need to demonstrate creativity and thinking outside the square.

laffydaffy said...

laffydaffy said...
