THE ROBOT

Capture Video? Yes please Mr Swivvel.

My fantastic mentor purchased this very cool little tool last year, and was super excited that it fit into my prac so well. We had to use ICT in our lessons, and given the school only has 2 class sets of laptops and 2 small computer labs, doing it in a way that was not just powerpoint or youtube on a projector was quite difficult!

The way we used the robot was to have one student have the remote control in their pocket, and then the Swivvel would follow their motion as they moved around. The performance was recorded on the ipad, and students would then have a chance to review, self-reflect and evaluate their work before their final performance.

This fits very nicely into Bloom’s Taxonomy higher order thinking heading of “Evaluation” don’t you think! #handy
