How To Use a Digital Camera

This is a student post by Taylor and Lauren.

.

.
We were learning about ways to use the app, Snapguide, to create a tutorial. Our idea was to show people how to use a digital camera. This tutorial will show you step by step basics of using a digital camera. We used the iPad to take pictures of each step. Next, we added captions to match the steps. We hope our tutorial will help people learn how to use a digital camera in the future.

International Show and Tell

Well, that was fun.

Today, we were able to meet Mrs. Monaghan’s class in England through Skype. During our blogging conversations, we discovered words we didn’t know and items we hadn’t heard before. We found out that we sometimes call the same things by different names. So, we decided to play a game of International Show and Tell.

.

.

Middleham started us off, “We think you might not know what a Fat Rascal is.” And, we didn’t. When they showed us what it looked like, we yelled, “It’s a cookie!” They told us it was actually a scone. None of the children in our class eat scones, but adults sometimes have it with coffee.


They continued to challenge us with
Flat Cap
IRN BRU
Double Decker
Rugby
Teletubbies
& Freddo


We knew 3 of their terms.


The Techie Kids tried a few of our own terms too. We asked if they knew
Gatorade
Skylanders
S’Mores
Vernors
Band-Aid
Barrette

.
They knew or were able to figure out most of these terms. We loved hearing what they called some of the items. We found out that the drink we call pop, they call “fizzy drinks.” They call Band-Aids, “plasters” and barettes, “hair-slides.”

.

Here’s an Animoto of the excitement.

Only 1 student in Mrs. Monaghan’s class had heard of a S’More before. They told us that they would be going camping soon. We thought it was important that they knew how to make these delicious snacks before they left!

Here’s our Snapguide teaching you how to make a S’More.

There were many more items we wanted to share, but didn’t have time.
Here is a SlideShare game we made for you. See if you can figure it out before clicking to the next slide.

Thanks for a super fun game!

How-To: Tie Your Shoes

Mrs. Moore went to an awesome education conference this past weekend called, EdCamp Detroit. It was full of amazing Michigan educators who love helping students learn! We had many great conversations and shared a whole bunch of cool ideas. When I told Mr. Medvinsky we were creating How-To videos, he shared a cool app with me called, SnapGuide. Guess what? I loved it and couldn’t wait to share it in class!

We jumped right in and made our first guide. Take a look at what our 1st graders created. Each photo is captioned and there are even videos at the end.
