My Students’ Classroom Vision (Animoto)

Author: Pernille Ripp – My Students’ Classroom Vision.

Every year I ask my students to come up with their vision for 5th grade.  This year I wanted to somehow use the song “Brave” by Sara Bareilles since it not only has an incredible message to all of us but also a very catchy beat.  Here is what my students came up with this year, I am so proud of them.”



“Socrative is a smart student response system that empowers teachers to engage their classrooms through a series of educational exercises and games via smartphones, laptops, and tablets.”

Ipad apps for classroom use

Aurasma- creative – used to make 3d pictures
Move and match – perfect for reading groups
Omega recorder
Talk recorder
Bits board
Book creator
Qr reader – this was really interesting. Record steps for each reading group, print out codes and students scan the codes with iPad for each time they start or complete an activity / step saves constantly asking the teacher 
Video scribe hd – fantastic saw students making word banks.
Here are some links to some fantastic classroom ICT resources:
