Work in Progress Year6
June 2007

I have posted this piece of work even though as yet it is incomplete, my reason for doing this is :To show the main reason that we use these web 2.0 tools with young pupils - That the thought process and skills development is the most important part of any piece of work, the final product is rewarding but the route to it is always fascinating :The background to this piece is that the young lady creating the work is 11 and will be going to Key Stage 3 (High School) in September. She is on our More Able and Talented register for her ability in Literacy ( having won our Eisteddfod with a wonderful poem using evocative language).She has been using Audacity for at least 4 months now and actually said that she prefered it to GarageBand ( non of my doing honestly) in fact this piece was recorded on a MacBook using Audcaity.Jess has asked for a quiet room to work in - in fact all e could hear from across the hall was strange tapping and clapping ( we ask no questions in our podcasting club!!!)It was only later at the end of a 45 minute session that I was shown this piece. It consists of 8 audio tracks, a mixture of voice and body percussion which has been timed and mixed ( including increasing the volume on some tracks ) by one person in less than an hour. I was certainly impressed and I wouldn't even like to consider what NC Level you would possibly like to put on the original idea, let alone the final product. The only problem we have as I see it is giving these children the opportunities to develop the skills they now have in a system which still tends toward rigid conformity with a set of steps !!!! Creativity !!!!
