The MEA/BFI session - November 2012 - Using iPads and ExplainEverything in the Media classroom
On Saturday 24th November, I attended the MEA/BFI conference for Media teachers as a presenter for the first time.
Despite the nerves, I was keen to "do" my session (which I had to do twice back to back).
Even though it involved iPads, the focus was on using them as tools to help with formative assessment in the media classroom. We focused on ExplainEverything which I had been using quite a bit in class with AS and A2 students.
Here are the few slides I used on the day:
Teachers had a chance to try out different activities using ExplainEverything on the iPads.
Some hands-on activities that AS students do - here with a focus on Genre. ExplainEverything was used to take pictures and record ideas / commentary / annotations.
