Well despite sandstorms, power cuts, and a slow network on power cut reboot, we actually manage to get logged-in and pick our themed background for our first PowToon today in ICT! Year 2 students had been learning to follow and write-up a set of instructions in curriculum diversity this week, so along with photos taken during our “How To Make Paint” science experiment, and videos of them recounting the steps, they are going to import bits and pieces into the program to create an animated presentation of their set of instructions. We’ll have a longer go tomorrow morning, and look forward to having some Year 2 PowToons to share this week or next!
This program is super user friendly, with short tutorials to guide teachers through the tools and navigation panes. I envision a higher turn around time for finished presentations in KS2 and up, and can be utilised cross-curriculum for any subject.
