Photoshop Santas

As part of our Christmas Inquiry, we are looking at the different types of Christmas Cards people send. We have decided to make our own dress up cards by using Photoshop to make us into Santas. We will be using these images on cards we will make for our families. This is an example of our teacher, Mr Huebl as Santa.

Screencasts

We have been creating screencasts as part of our digital citizenship inquiry. We have learned that part of being a good digital citizen is to give as well as take. We have made some instructional screencasts that we will share with others so they can learn new skills on the computer that they might not already know.

Fake Book

Your Humanities task this week is to make a ‘FakeBook‘ account for your ingenious thinker.

You will need to pick appropriate ‘events’ from your thinker’s life and make them the posts. How others reacted to these events will be comments for these posts.

Think about what sort of information your thinker would want to share with the world if they lived in an era of social networking. What would they keep secret? Who would they be friends with?

Have fun… and post the link to your post as a comment!
