Celebrating this year’s 1 Minute Film Competition finalists
Video is a powerful medium for kids and young adults to explore concepts and reflect on issues. This year’s 1-Minute Film Competition has provided the perfect platform for students from Australia and New Zealand to do just this! The quality of entries this year has been high, with students producing exceptional videos using anything from stop-motion to short rhymes. Each entry was given the task of interpreting a theme, “Tomorrow”, and producing a 60-second video. Students were required to think about the entire video production process from start to finish including script writing, video production,…

A New Reality: 360° Video in the Classroom

A New Reality: 360° Video in the Classroom
OK, I’ll be honest – I’ve always thought that virtual reality was a bit of a fad - thinking 3D TV’s here. So when ClickView’s CEO, Evan, mentioned the Oculus Rift at the start of 2016, I knew the only way to energise the production team was for us to be exposed to as much VR as possible. While everyone was talking about VR, there weren’t many examples of it we could easily get access to. Luckily for us an amazing event called Kaleidoscope, touring only 10 cities in the world, had chosen Melbourne to…

Indigenous Language and Identity: NAIDOC Week 2017
NAIDOC Week, the first week of July each year, is a time to celebrate and recognise the history and culture of Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. This year, NAIDOC Week (2 – 9 July 2017) centres around the link between language and identity, with the theme “Our Languages Matter”. The theme for 2017 encourages Australians to recognise and embrace the use of indigenous language in everyday life, where words and phrases might be as close as a local suburb or street’s place name. NAIDOC Week celebrates this theme through the arts and here…

Flipping Tradition for Our Technology Era – EduTECH 2017 Review

Flipping Tradition for Our Technology Era – EduTECH 2017 Review
"What is the most valuable use of your face-to-face time with your students?"​- Jon Bergmann Disclosure: My attendance at EduTECH 2017 was through a media pass provided by the organisers. In 2014, whilst on my final professional experience placement as part of my initial teacher education, my supervising teacher was exploring flipped learning. We had a chat about his understanding of what it was, how it worked, and how he was modifying things to suit his class. That particular class was a combined Year Five and Six class and he was using what I now…
