eBook in a Day – A huge success with Primary Schools

Students from Mary Elton and Yeo Moor Primary schools in Clevedon have become published authors on the iBook Store. Students, supported by Gavin Smart an Apple Distinguished Educator from Clevedon School have been working collaboratively to produce a multi touch interactive book in one school day. Their book showcases their school to perspective students and parents. Students were challenged to create a Student Perspective Prospectus using a wide variety of apps which included videos, pictures and also elements of interactivity. These books are now available to download in over 50 countries world wide on the iBooks Store.

Students used Book Creator app for iPad to produce their multi touch book. The students found using the app easy to use and loved being able to include a wide range of media.

Introducing SnapMaps

nintchdbpict000256940081-e1477402048283

As you will no doubt be aware, SnapChat is used regularly by many children and young people, and has recently launched a new feature. The feature, known as SnapMaps, allows users to see the location of their contacts. This enables others to accurately pinpoint where you are and as such has potential safeguarding concerns.

If your child uses SnapChat, we respectfully urge parents and carers to discuss and investigate the privacy settings that your child is using within the app.

There are three possible privacy settings:

· Ghost mode, where only you can see your position;

· My Friends mode, where any contact can see your location; and

· Select Friends mode, just those who you choose can see you

Sharing location can be a risky thing to do and due to this ChildNet have posted a thorough explanation of SnapMaps and how to ensure users stay safe. We recommend reading this, and to share with anyone you know who uses the app.

Virtual Reality at Clevedon School

CLEVEDON School was treated to an evening with local scientists that are building a revolutionary virtual reality experience to reveal the microscopic world of superbugs.

Students were visited by Dr Thomas Gorochowski, Dr Antoni Matyjaszkiewicz and Dr Matt Williams from the University of Bristol who are heading up the project, and Jenny Blackwood and Jonathan Jenkins from Interactive Scientific Ltd. that develop the underlying technology called Nano Simbox.
In a packed evening of fun and educational sessions, students were shown how superbugs grow, evolve and adapt, and the problems they pose to our health. They were also were given the chance to experience virtual reality at first hand and better understand how it could be used to teach others about the dangers of superbugs.

Clevedon school offers all students a ‘Future’ Programme’ to enhance learning with a full range of visits from inspirational outside speakers so learning is related to the outside world.
Head of Digital Learning Gavin Smart said: “It was an incredible opportunity for staff and students to work with some of the world’s top up-and-coming scientists and experience this pioneering technology!”
“Building links to academic research is crucial for developing the next-generation of digital engineers and scientists.”

Dr Gorochowski said: “Clevedon School has been a superb partner in the project, showing an openness to explore the cutting-edge methods we are using and allowing students of all ages to take part… as well as the teachers!”
“As the project is still under development with generous support from the EPSRC and BristolBridge AMR, we can’t wait to show them later in the year what we cook up based on their valuable input.”

The school wants more individuals and firms to become part of the ‘Future’s Programme’. Please get in touch with the school if you can help.
