Sarah and I travel with a huge amount of kit too, ready for any eventuality. Laptops, cameras, microphones, projectors, enough wires and gubbins to equip a T.V or sound recording studio… and more.
How much fun it is when we get to work with so many children who are up for challenges, and juggle technology like a professional, after a bit of creative guidance, and stretch the potential of both hardware and software.
Today, we relished putting it all in to action again, and even had the chance to work with the one, large group all day, writing, recording, creating, composing, filming… all culminating in a stylish performance, or “happening” for an audience of visitors…
Back at Camborne Science and Community College, this time, with 42 students from Year 7. A whole day, and a HUGE amount covered.
By the end of the day, as well as a huge amount of exploring in the world of words, as a result of wandering through some new, and complex, virtual reality landscapes, we had used GarageBand to create a multitrack recording, to accompany film, and live action; filmed, recorded and blogged some increasingly confident and imaginative sparks of creativity; …and had a lot of fun!
Thank you to teachers Emily Herrett and Rachel Fry; our camera man, Rick Hewlett; and the Year 7 students today, for your energy and drive. A cornucopia of Cornish creativity, … far from clotted!
