Language Arts 4 - Pilgrims
The journey to civilization in North America
Assignment 5: Choice of personal response to class reading on the pilgrims
1) Film a scene
You may use the tool: Videolicious in creating your scene. Use the following link to help you download the Videolicious app to your computer, ipad, or iphone and start creating!
Videolicious is an app you can use to create movies with multiple clips of footage, incorporating some editing and transitions, that is ideal for sharing with your friends and classmates. The best part is that it can be done in three quick and easy steps. First you choose your video clips (or photos), second you can use your apple gadget camera to record audio over top, third you can select a song from your music library to use as a soundtrack.
If you are having troubles, here is something to get you started:
2) Create a Flyer/Advertisement
Here are the links to the flyer/poster creating websites you can use:
http://appcrawlr.com/ios/vanillapen-poster-maker (Vanillapen allows its users to choose from a select amount of templates and create a poster for a variety of things. You can change text, colour, shape, etc. to create a personalized and exciting digital poster for any occasion.)
http://appcrawlr.com/ios/breeze-real-estate-flyer-maker (literally used for real estate, but can be manipulated to create a personalized poster that would be applicable for this assignment. There are a variety of templates that you can use to create your poster, and you are able to incorporate photos, text and other such things from your iPd/iPhone/computer.)
And if you are having troubles understanding how to use them, you can look on youtube for tutorials, or ask me, here is a video to get you started:
3) Draw pictures/Create a narration
https://voicethread.com/ (you can use VoiceThread online, or you can download the iPad app from the App Store. It is a great program that allows you to add audio over pictures, animations, video, etc. There are many things you can do with this app if you take time to explore it)
This is a tutorial on how to use VoiceThread:
4) Travelling Journel
You will be required to write 3 'journal entries' imagining that you are in the place of an individual immigrating to and settling in Canada. This could be a journal of your journey there or struggles with setting up life; it can be from the perspective of a father, mother, sister.. let your imagination soar! Rather than using a traditional journal, you will be using Evernote, a blogging app. I want you to include pictures, diagrams, links - whatever you think is relevant - in your 3 posts.
Here is a link to help you find the app:https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/evernote/id281796108?mt=8 (In Evernote you are able to create notes with pictures, videos, audio files, etc. within a notebook. You can have several notebooks which allows you to organize you life on many different levels. But for this assignment we will be using Evernote as a blogging app.)
And here is a video about how to use it:
Happy Creating Class :)
