Photo_5.jpg Hi,

I'm Rachael Luna from St Johns Primary at Dapto. I teach I.T. to the upper primary classes in the mornings and I'm a Kinder teacher in the afternoon. In the I.T. classes the year 5's and 6's are beginning the planning process for developing their own short films, which will premier at the Gala Cinema as part of Flick Fest later in the year. Module2: Global Connections


Can't wait to make a match with a class from ePals and give my kindergarten class a broader understanding of the world. I'm also excited about getting the students in the technology classes to search through the avatars on voices of the world, create their own talking avatar and learn to embed it on their own blogs.

Module 3: Learning technologies in ES1. I was really inspired by the knowledge and enthusiasm of our guest speaker Nicole. I think that she is really brave to attempt to use so much technology in a 90% ESL Kindergarten class and was successful. I will definitely be using SAM Animation with my class to create a film about Living Things to go with our Science unit. And I am planning to use the 2Simple software even more extensively in many areas of the curriculum.

We dont do flick fest anymore - a student in 6 green.
