I'm going to be away tomorrow...

Please check out the blog in class, show everyone the latest posts, and schedule everyone a turn on Marvin to get used to it before beginning digital story telling which will start this week. Make sure everyone has images and a script written for their digital story on Hamilton - or some related personal story.
The first person to write a sensible comment on this post will be the official teacher [with assistance from a reliever]

Hi Mr Woody.
What are we going to do for PE tomorrow???.... Can we please play uni hockey???
I have some images on my hamilton blog but are we able to just bring the rest of them to school on a disk?

Im not sure if any one else is but im am kinda confussed about our Hamilton digi story and what we are ment ro be doing it on because i no that Kitty Milos digi story has like nothing really to do with Hamilton but others are promoting tha hamilton gardens or the V8s.
So could ypu please explain to me or put up a post on the blog telling us what our story is ment to be about.

Oh, oh, can i please be the ex teacher tomorrow????

Thanks, bye!!!!
:D

so mr 'tron and snowy get to be teachers in charge of the blog presentation tomorrow. i would also like kittymilo to take part. kittymilo's job is to explain how her digital story IS related to Hamilton in a roundabout kinda way...

If your digital story is promoting Hamilton, fine.
If it's about something you find intriguing, exciting, bothersome or amazing about Hamilton, good.
If it's about a seemingly random thing that you became passionate about during our study of Hamilton, that's cool too. you just have to be able to explain a strong link to the theme. Kittymilos's is about her ethnic identity because as part of our study we talked alot about tagging and everytime something negative was brought up it seemed that people jumped to conclusions blaming one group of people for most of our crime. the important part is that it came out of our study and our discussions and it is something she is passionate about.
it's also somthing the mayor might be interested to hear about from a young person's perspective.

Yea my Digital Story is about tagging linked with my home country.
It may contain graphic images but i'm trying to make it clean. Hope we win the X-BOX!!!!

MrWoody said...

that sounds excellent, Hamiltron. just make sure the link between your tagging and homeland themes mix in with the Hamilton theme.

Today was no a very good day. Our teacher did not let us do marvin or the blog!!!!

MrWoody said...

darnit - did you ask her to let you see the blog? tell her i have posted things for you to see in the morning. i will not be at school again tomorrow...

rosiegal said...

Oh! I want you to b there! It is a lot more fun with you there! And no she didnt let us look at the blog, and we asked her to let us do the marvin script writin and hamilton stuff. We did Uni hock which wa fun, but it would be good if you could sugest to do the story board stuff! Are you here on wednesday?

HamilTRON said...

Yea I do agree with Rosiegal and Snowy.
We did not go on the blog or do our Marvin Digital Stories :(

Neina-Marie said...

Mr Woody, can my story be on how divorce and break-ups affect kids??? It seems a really powerful story (But it is copyrighted).

MrWoody said...

i am nearly dead so i suspect i will be away until thursday. you poor things will have to train the reliever [who is it?] to check the blog in class each morning.

thanks rosiegal!

neina-marie - read the requirements - it has to relate somehow to the Hmailton study... how would your idea relate?

rosiegal said...

Our reliver is Mrs Johnson, and I sure dont hope your sickness has led you to death! WE tryed to train her again, but it did not work! We will have to try harder on wednesday!

Snowy said...

For my digistory im doing mine on...
Kids and there familys should have the right to feel safe walking on the streets of Hamilton.
Like they are trying to promote walking but if the streets are not safe then every one will drive plus if the backup system(police) dont respond then that is not very good.

PLEASE CAN NO ONE COPIE ME!!!!!!

Is this good Mr Woody????

MrWoody said...

Great idea, Snowy!

Snowy said...

Yay i got and idea!!!!!
