In our UOI we began our ‘i’-time with digital media. Each child has explored an area of interest with digital media and will be continuing to learn about this through the unit. You may have noticed that your child has been doing this at home.
Students began unpacking the report framework and began writing some of their own.
How We Organise Ourselves
Central Idea: The way we communicate information through digital media can bring challenge, benefits and responsibilities.
Lines of Inquiry
- How new digital media is used and organised
- Evaluating information
- Our responsibility in virtual environments
This is a paperless unit, designed to encourage the students to see the positives and challenges of using digital media on a daily basis. In the coming week the students will continue their personal inquiry through ‘i’-time and develop a platform for sharing their work.
Central Idea – Probability is based on chance and can be expressed in different ways
Lines of Inquiry:
- Data from probability and how it can be collected, organized, displayed and analysed in different ways.
- Different graph forms that highlight different aspects of probability data more efficiently.
The children will be:
- Looking at the language of probability and chance (e.g. ‘likely’, ‘unlikely’, ‘certain’ and ‘impossible’)
- Playing games to introduce the concept of chance (e.g. dice, card or board games)
- Looking ways to record and analyse probability results.
To present information about something, generally describing an entire class of thing, whether natural or man-made.
The structure of an information report:
- an general opening statement or classification, for example sparrows are birds
- a series of paragraphs detailing aspects of the subject (can use sub-headings)
- diagrams or illustrations to aid the presentation of information
- concluding or summarising statement (this is not always necessary)
- a glossary to define terms
The children will be:
- Looking at the features and elements of online information reports
- Evaluating fake/real websites
