Presentation of Truls Dahn: How to create Apps

Truls Dahl explained native apps and web apps. For more detail please have a look at Truls’ presentation.
The idea was that students in every school develop and sell new apps as the entrepreneurship task.

Discussion about how to proceed with task entrepreneurship
Belgium, Germany and Spain don’t think that it is possible for their students and teachers to develop new apps. These schools never did an entrepreneurship project and would like to do this task as it was planned before.
Wales offers to develop a web app on our website which leads every school through the entrepreneurship task. Every school can work on this task on their own needs. Norway could develop apps with their students while other countries start businesses to earn money on students ideas (like cake selling, making jewellery, cleaning windows…)

Presentation of stop motion movies
Each country presents some of their work on animation.
Every school should give their movies to Adrian. Adrian will upload them on website.
As a reflection every teacher who worked on animation should fill in a KWHL grid in English and own language by 16th of June. Please reflect on: What went well? What went wrong? Where to improve?

Presentation of Animation ideas

  • a lot of different possibilities: most simple: taking picture every two seconds.., others: i-stop-motion
  • Vincent showed different kinds of animation movies (made with paper, modelling clay, moving objects, people, or mix it all…). Vincent, please upload link of movies on website.
  • take care about light and shadow and continuity
  • about 12 picture every second
  • everyone should also present the process of making the movie/teaching, because we want to share good practice (Introduction, research, learning how to use animation technique, planning, production, reflection)

  • Adrian wrote the rationale of Task 2 on website. Please translate text into your home language and send it to Adrian by email as soon as possible.
  • movies shouldn’t be too long, about 1-3 minutes

Entrepreneurship:

Entrepreneurship-tasks will be represented in Norway in June. Time might be very tight before summer holidays. We decided that we have time to finish this task till the beginning of year 2018. Therefore it might be good that Wales also presents task 4 in Norway in June and every school can decide how to proceed.

Idea for this task: kids are producing their own app for selling things. It will be shown in Norway. It’s possible to do it on different levels. Germany is not sure if this is a task their students could benefit from (special needs school). Silke will show how to work on this with Grade 1 and Germany will decide if they can adapt it for their students.

4th meeting in Speyer:

Adrian will send email with a spreadsheet for finding the Dates for our meeting in Speyer in Autumn 2017.
