Learning away from the classroom

A child in my class was off school today but kept ‘in contact’ with us using Edmodo. She explained to use she wouldn’t be in but would create an animoto as a surprise for someone in our class. We were all intrigued so we checked back later and before home time we discovered her link to the following video.

The video is for a girl who will be, like myself, leaving the class and the island at the end of June to start a life elsewhere. It’s a beautiful peice of work and brought home to me that my teaching of these tools is being used effectively for continued learning by my class outside of school.
