Grade four’s ‘I can’ challenges;
- I can create ICT products for specific purposes in different areas of the curriculum. (Collages, tagxedos, photo stories, slide shows.)
- I can explain why we have passwords. (eSmart Rubric to follow)
- I can capture, download and edit pictures from a digital camera.
- I can use spell check and other keyboard shortcuts. (Pre/Post tests)
- I can use graphics and text to show ideas in mind maps, tables, SmartArt.
- I can organise my inbox using folders. (T1, T2, T3, T4 & naming work appropriately.)
- I can use specific words when searching for information (e.g. using the images or maps function in Google).
Students have begun using a coding program ‘2Do it yourself’ to create their own online games. Part of this learning goal was using their photography skills to capture an image of their favourite hangout location around our school grounds. Once they’ve completed this brief they will be saving these games to their USB and sharing them with you at home. You never know, there may be some famous game makers like Shigeru Miyamoto or Sid Meier among us.
At the end of the year I ask the students to post a comment underneath their year level page on this blog and use this as a guide to plan for 2018. I’ve put one example here and the others are found right down the bottom of this page.
Every year I enjoy watching what the grade four students invent for their future ‘CODING’ robot. The brief has included these questions…
What is its purpose? What is it made of? How does it move? How is it powered? What is its name?
They use many different computer programs to present their invention and I’m always amazed with their end results.

Grade fours were asked to send an email today to three people; Mrs Miller, a parent & their class teacher. In their email they were asked to type a recount of their spring holidays and what their new ICT goal is for term 4. Here are some examples;
Our grade four students have been learning some more Cyber Safety skills after having an in visit from Constable Deneen during week three. Mrs Miller received some fantastic emails reflecting on this visit.
Students were also learning about different file formats and thoroughly enjoyed searching for GIFs. (Graphics Interchange Format. GIFs are image files that are compressed to reduce transfer time.) Here’s some examples that were emailed to Mrs Miller as an attachment…Cute Dogs GIF link
Hayley B watched a short movie in the CyberSmart site called ‘Game On’. She posted, “I learned not don’t post rude things on peoples blogs becuase people all ways find out and dont share passwords to any one.”
The movie was about never sharing your password with anyone. Never play your game for too long because it takes over what you do in your life. You should set a maximim time to play. One hour a day is best. By Kaide R9
After viewing the Cyber Buster invisit, grade 4 students were asked to create a poster about what they had learnt.

Well done to these students for nearly completing all of these goals;
