iPads in English
In May, Year 8 students used iPads to create comic strip versions of their own war story dramas.
The students have been looking at poetry from the first World War in English. They produced a final assessed piece of drama telling a war story. The ipads were then used to translate these dramas into comics.
The students photographed still images from their dramas, then edited a comic strip version using these photos. They could add speech bubbles, special effects and narrator boxes. The end results have been very rewarding.
Special thanks must go to Mr Riddell for his technical support!
