Just a quick link here to some work that we have been doing at Zetland Primary. They have been using their ipods in Y5&6 to develop work about the regeneration of the seafront which includes the Hub, the Pier and the new leisure facilities. Working with Anne Simpson who co-ordinates the Redcar Regeneration education and engagement programme, pupils have been on site visits, developed their own flyers and worked on ideas for a Time Capsule. The fact that they have been out and about plenty has meant that the ipod touches are a god send as they can hoover up any information or create work while outside the traditional classroom. Their blog is here:
Although broken up for the Summer holiday I know they have big plans for more work including a QR trail along the seafront, all ready for production September.
