This week we have received delivery of the Ipads for the trial and hopefully will be receiving the Itouches very soon. I am venturing into the Bright cookie office this afternoon so the app can be loaded onto them. There has been a development site created in Moodle for the trial and a Leo has added the plug in for uploading the video assessments. Next week the first group of students will be presenting their first video assessments so we will be very interested to see how they found the process. This group are not using the app, the second group will be, so we will have feedback from both groups and be able to compare experiences. Bev and I made a video ourselves this week to see the good and bad of what the students may be experiencing. This was a very interesting experience for us as we had to become students for a while and we could actually see that the process is not as easy as we thought. We are going to show the trial student group next week what we did and will have an unedited and edited version. The purpose of this was really to say to the students that something very simple can have a powerful message. We may post both next week for everyone to see….we used finger puppets and I am not sure if our message was powerful but it shows we are human! I did wonder why I kept morphing into an American accent when I was using the Panda finger puppet, Bev was Teddy but she sounded right!
