Today we started to use Keynote for the first time. Keynote is a very powerful iPad App that will allow you to make presentations. It also does so much more like animations, books, movies, lots of stuff. For today we began with the basics.
In learning how to use Keynote the students created some simple Math Games (just a set of slides, remember we want to use the tools well first) which they will share with the Prep students.
So from this simple activity the students learnt the basics of Keynote, how to make slides, using their words, ordering (in the slides and transitions). They will then learn a whole new set of skills when they head down to work with the Preps including, sharing their knowledge, speaking with a younger group of children (in both English and Arabic) and presentation skills and confidence.
Oh, and I am now fluent in Arabic….well the numbers 3 and 5 (video at the end of this post)
Below I have a visual breakdown of the lesson (with info in the captions), I have also posted the full video of the lesson at the end of this post.
