The world of ICT’s is very familiar to most children in schools (and mine at home), so I decided to explore some of their world. This decision took me on a search of a way to make animated videos as I could see the benefits of such use in a classroom setting. A quick Google search uncovered Goanimate , a website that enables you to make your own video. I found it to be quite user friendly with the added bonus that you could create a 30 second video for free. I therefore set to work, ICT Genie ensued. Check it out, it only took 2 hours to create a 30 second movie (and an added half an hour to figure out what to do with it once I had finished). There is also Goanimate for schools – however an account and payment is required for that site. This was quite an enjoyable activity, although quite time consuming I have discovered that ICT skill development is certainly a cumulative process. The more you give it a go, the more you learn and the less time it takes you on your new discovery. I hope you enjoy my video.
