Wondersaid-Simple and Effective

made on Wondersay – Animate text with style


When clearing out the Student Resources network folder, I came across a copy of Slender. Not knowing what it was, I opened it up and began to explore. I immediately had flashbacks to The Blairwitch Project, the horror movie from the late 1990’s.


Slender is a free download.

A little creepy but engaging. Jay, a Grade 8 student, says, “Trying  playing at night, alone, with the lights out. Watch out.”

iPads in “The Hallway”

As iDesign students were finishing up their animations, some students investigated the soon to be released MS iPads. They disappeared into hallway and later returned with the following trailer they created on their own. A good way to end the week.

iLearn-Share the Knowledge Challenge

Mr. Sturgeon’s iLearn students given the challenge of completing a word processing skills test recently. The goal was to have all students complete the task as quickly as possible. Students were encouraged to talk to each other, explain how to complete tasks, and even point to the screen and walk students through more difficult questions. The one approach not permitted was taking over control of a fellow classmate’s mouse.

Here is photo of the students nearing the end of the task.

Here is the list of tasks that they had. Give it a try.
