Part of the KC's or Key Competencies is the knowledge and use of signs, symbols and texts. This year the extension classes have worked on a short project that had them thinking all about symbols that would communicate important features about themselves and their whanau.
All the year 7 and 8 students have posted their creations online using flickr. You will find them by clicking here. The example I have posted here belongs to Chante and Cruz who worked very hard to complete the task before the deadline. The rest of the class soon joined them with their completed symbols.
The students will also be sharing their creations via their individual class blogs. Be sure to leave them some feedback.
Learn: about symbols, signs and text to communicate
Create: Digital graphics to communicate their personal symbols
Share: Sharing online where there is opportunity to receive feedback and contributions towards their work. Reflection is also part of this sharing on their personal blogs.
