Using the Puppet Pals App

Year 6 have been using ‘A Christmas Carol’ in literacy and have already used the Do Ink Green Screen app to read Scrooge’s obituary. They then wanted to produce animations based around the ghosts visiting Scrooge and so some of the Digital Leaders chose to try the Puppet Pals app, and then taught the rest of Year 6 how to use it.

We can’t wait to see the finished results, which will be posted on individual blogs.

The video below will show you how to use the App 🙂

Green Screen by Do Ink

Today, Year 6 have been writing an obituary for the death of Ebenezer Scrooge and wanted to perform reading their writing, as though they were town criers announcing his death.

Our Digital Leaders have been trialling a great app called Green Screen by Do Ink, for the iPad, and love its ease and how user friendly it is. Our green screen area was in use and so I used SmartNotebook to turn the board green and that was used as a background to film Kai. The first layer in Do Ink was of a Victorian sence found, seond layer video of Kai and the third layer was of snow falling.

We’re pretty impressed with the first video, what do you think?
