Session 3 – Student Voice – Brent Moller with students Leio and Faith

How can we see more talented pupils reach their potential through technology.

Faith – Music
Using Garage Band to create musical tracks without expensive technology. Faith recreated a track in 10 minutes using her ipad!! She created piano, drums, base, vocals and created an amazing into to a song, which she then entered into a radio competition.

Leio – App Creator
In Year 6 Leio decided he wanted to make an App so went on Google to find out how. By the end of Year 7 he had created his first app and now has an App company “App, App and away” He had to create his own learning environment. In Year 8 Leio created an ibook rather than a poster for a weekend assignment with is now an example on the iwebsite. Why don’t other students do this – they are passive users of technology. He thinks coding is the answer – learning the language of technology.
