Adding Voice to Matariki Animations

The learners in the Year 6, 7 and 8 class at Kawakawa School have been creating animations to tell their stories about the legends of Matariki.  They have used Google Slides to collaboratively create their animations.  They have then used Screencastify to record themselves telling the story of their animation as they move through the slides.  There are many great examples of storytelling and creativity on their class blog.  I have chosen 3 to share here as great motivators for other teachers/learners.

The Unknown Stars - Simonie and Terina

Te Tane's Journey - James

To Tatou Morearea - Jayda and Shanen


A couple of students from Room 6 in Kawakawa have been peer tutoring a class at Hay Park School in Auckland via Google Hangouts.  They have been sharing their expertise with Google Slides for animation and screencastify.  They have prepared a step by step guide that you may like to use to support your learners.
