Powtoon presentations

French FilmWe decided we wanted to create a final year 10 assignment where students could take responsibility for their learning, decide how they would present it and build into it a way of revising key French language. It is important when you are learning a language to know how to say you are sick, ask for directions and generally manage yourself when you are lost. We wanted students to have choices with technology so they could use mobile technology, their laptops or a website. We have used Moovly and GoAnimate before but some of my students came back to PowToon which I had taught them how to use in Year 8. The site has improved considerably and they were able to complete their complex videos and have lots of choices of backgrounds, persona and other animation props. PowToonsThe PowToons animations were very good graphically , in terms of sequencing and the voice recordings were clear. Students had clearly had a lot of fun making these animations and it had made them very confident in their oral abilities. You can download a copy of the French short film creation1 here which is linked to the National Curriculum requirements. We also connected our learning to our online language learning site. When you can tie things together like that you can see how much progress we have made in classrooms in terms of promoting technology use, national curriculum and personalised learning. Some students used the LMS to send me the script and others had a voice recording for me to listen to. They were the ones choosing the ways in which they would improve their work and that is what we wanted as teachers. All year we had been filling them full of good things, we now wanted them to be confident learners. I was not disappointed with the results.
