My Presentation!

Graphic art plays a very important part in our learning at Pt England school. Lots of our students are like me and love doing graphic art and are really good at it.This is because we start when we are really young! I started when I was 5 years old! And I'm still doing it. Our new entrants start of by using Kid Pix to draw their own pictures about what they are learning. And we just get better and better at it as we get older. No one at our school is even allowed to use clip art. We draw our own pictures or take photos.

We start creating animations of our learning when we are very young too and we all begin by making Kid Pix Slide shows. As we get older we learn to animate our work in programmes like Pixelmator, I can Animate and iMovie. My favourite multimedia programme is hyperstudio and I like using it to create animations of the things I write about. Then I publish them on my blog for the hole world to see and give me feedback. Did you know that Roger Wagner, the man who invented Hyperstudio asked our school to be the beta testers of his new versions! He really likes how we use Hyperstudio and he even showed my work and some of my friends at the Mac world convention in America this year!

My favourite part about publishing my animations is writing what I have made and adding my point of view to it. Then I publish it on my blog for the whole world to see and give me feed back! i think that this is a great way to show people what we have been learning about and everyone likes watching them!


  1. I enjoyed your video of explaining your use of ICTs and your blog. You have a very nice voice. Mrs. Burk showed your video to the audience at the ISTE conference if Denver, Colorado, USA. Do you know where Denver is? We had a very nice time in seeing the Pt. England School students' work. I visited your school in February and hope to have a chance for my students, who are teachers, to learn from you. Thank you for the good work you are doing.

  2. Hello S McPherson,

    Thank you so very much for leaving a comment from you on one of my posts. That is so kind and No I don't no where Denver is. By the way I hoped that you had liked the presentation that Mrs Burt was showing you. I hope that you have learnt a lot from the meeting and that one day some of your kids can learn these things as well. Once again thank you very much for leaving me a comment.

    Yours truly, Ala
