EDDL 5131 – Media Exemplar Collection – Everyday Things

PICTURE/GRAPHIC: Google Photos; Snapseed

Ex.) Six-Word Memoir Graphic

With my particular group of students, Grade Seven, I thought the use of the smartphone would serve a dual purpose. It would activate engagement because of the familiarity and appeal their phones would bring to any task. Secondly, the various apps could be utilized to facilitate the learning process.

In working with six-word memoirs this year, I thought that several activities using multimedia elements would help provide a more engaging approach for each student to meet the learning objective. I designed these exemplars around a six-word memoir unit based on everyday things in our lives.

For my picture/graphic, I used my iPhone 6 camera with the following apps:

  • Google Photos
  • Snapseed

Google Photos allowed access to unlimited storage of my photos from my phone’s camera roll. In addition, Snapseed is an application that links directly to Google Photos and provides various mobile editing features such as adding text, filters, and effects. (see below)

 AUDIO: Six-Word Memoir Recording: Audacity

In terms of creating an audio file, I wanted students to have an opportunity to tell their story by recording a familiar sound in their everyday lives. Students would write a six-word memoir about that particular sound. They would then use Audacity to record the audio of themselves reading their memoir. In addition, they would use Audacity to record the actual sound.

Ex.) Record a video based upon three six-word memoirs

As a final task or summative assessment for my six-word memoir unit, I thought it would be fun to incorporate all three multimedia elements of picture, audio, and video into a Screencastify video clip.

The following clip is an example of three six-word memoirs about everyday things in my life.
