Using Digital Literacy.
We have been using digital literacy as a means to develop our diary writing skills. We used a game on the iPad called Bike Baron and the children had to use their experience of game play to gradually produce a longer piece of writing. They developed their use of grammar and punctuation and wrote in first person, past tense as the Baron. Some chose to use an app on the iPad called 'Popplet' to help them box up and write their initial paragraphs. They also inserted screen shots of their game play to help them with vocabulary, text structure and organisation. Final drafts were hand written for our display in the classroom.
Take a look at the children in action below.
