In this Flipped Teacher Professional Learning video, I show you a tool that I can see being useful and fun with Geography and Visual Arts where yo draw a line on the screen and the program matches it to a line of a similar trajectory from a satellite image.
This could be utilised a stimulus for visual arts (I am seeing Mr Squiggle in my mind at the moment), or it could be used as a quick fire engagement task in geography with students having to identify the type of geographical formation.

This post is much later than usual, and after having spent this morning watching the various student performances, all of which were delightful, I then spent an hour in the dentist’s chair this afternoon, which was…I will use the word delightful.
I am currently working on editing (putting in title screens) the recordings from today’s performances so that staff can have copies of each of the performances from today, and so the students can watch their performances and enjoy them as much as the audience did.
The other display that was put on in the school today, aside from the classrooms being open for parents to visit, was a series of sculptures made by each class, and made form a range of recycled materials. The sculptures were put on display throughout the school grounds, and maps provided indicating where they could be found, to form a sculpture walk for parents and students to enjoy. I have included a few photos from this art installation below, to highlight some of what was on display today.
Thank you for reading, as always, and I hope that you have enjoyed the celebrations put on by your local public school to celebrate Education Week this year.
