This is a first in a what will hopefully be a regular series of posts offering short and easy to use suggestions, or “scenarios” on how to use technology, particularly mobile technologies, in the ERC class. (Inspired by Avi Spector’s mobile Mondays)
In this case we are offering up three different documents that basically follow then same scenario, but which examine three different religious expressions as examples: Salat (Muslim prayer), Murti (Hindu image/sculptures) and Prayer Wheels (Buddhism)
Steps are as follows:
Step 1 Describe a form of religious expression
Examine a high definition or panorama image and isolate and describe the object.
Step 2 Associate a religious expression with religious traditions
Watch a video and capture screenshots of segments that discuss and explain the religious expression.
Step 3 Associate a religious expression with religious traditions
Use a note taking application to include images, video captures, connecting lines and written explanations to indicate connections between the expression and the traditions in that culture!
Suggested applications include:
- Safari combined with Flickr or 360 Cities web sites
- Youtube video application or site (or use Discovery videos via VodZone on LEARN. Use Puffin application to be able to download the videos if you wish)
- Noteledge. A note taking application which allows insertion of images. Noteledge also allows videos to be inserted! (You may need to use something like SimpleTransfer to move locally stored videos like Discovery videos onto the Camera roll!)
