Academy9’s Early Birds, inspiring the next David Attenborough?  ⤴

from @ Glowing Posts

As part of the RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch, which takes place at the end of January each year, the Academy9 team headed to primary schools in Newtonmore, Kingussie, Pitlochry and Aberfeldy to work with P3s on the topic of the great wildlife on their doorsteps. 

In the Early Birds session, pupils learned about the range of birds in the Highlands through three interactive tasks. Ecologists, Joanna & Amy introduced the pupils to a variety of local birds, from Robins to Capercaillies.

Meet The Team⤴

from @ Glowing Posts

Hi there pupils, parents, teachers and the wider community. I am Callum Charteris, the current head boy of Clydeview Academy, and I am delighted to be able to bring you the new pupil-led online blog,  Clydeview Connect. Together with Mr Wallace and the strong team of bloggers, we cannot wait to get started, bringing you the latest pupil insight on everything going on in our school. We would love to dive straight into the action, but first, let me introduce you to the team!

Meet The Team

Nice to see a blog involving pupils. Interesting to see one that has mixed age groups.

Body Smart⤴

from @ Glowing Posts

Being Body Smart is all about movement and 3D thinking. We use our body smarts in sports, dancing and acting.

Some of us move our bodies to think, having our best ideas when we’re on the go. Being Body Smart also incorporates building 3D models with blocks, Lego or junk modelling.

Part of the

Fetterangus P4-7 class blog!

Every student in the class is a contributor and will be adding a post or two during the year.

The idea for the blog was not only to have a go using technology but also to showcase work we’ve been doing on multiple intelligences.

Find the Plovers H5P example in Glow Blogs⤴

A small example of the H5P Find Multiple Hotspots content type in Glow Blogs.

I was intrigued how these wee chicks survived given the number of dogs walked along this shore in addition to plenty of gulls & crows who I would expect to enjoy a plover chick dinner. Even the adults are quite hard to spot.

I am building a collection of H5P examples on Glow Blogs. I’ve also been using it to make some spelling crosswords, word-searches and cloze procedures for my class using the North Lanarkshire spelling word list.

ChatGPT for Lazy Teachers⤴

I’ve read a bit about ChatGPT use in education, there is a lot about 1

I’ve been kicking the tyres of ChatGPT a little. Even on the surface it is quite interesting.

I have tried a couple of things that might be useful. One is to get some JavaScript functions for a little fun. It did what I wanted. The other was perhaps more pertinent to teaching.

I wanted to knock out a couple of simple cloze procedures, making up sentences is one of the more tedious tasks so I though I’d give ChatGPT a shot. I asked:

Me: can you give me sentences for 10 year old using each of these words feat
feet
mail
male
leak
leek
meat
meet

ChatGPT: Sure! Here are some sentences using each of these words:

"I am so proud of my little sister's feat of climbing to the top of the jungle gym all by herself!"
"I can't believe how big my feet have gotten since I was a baby."
"I need to go to the post office to mail this letter to my pen pal in France."
"My uncle is a male doctor."
"There's a small leak in the roof that needs to be fixed before it starts raining."
"I love adding sliced leek to my salads for a little extra flavor."
"I can't wait to have a barbecue and cook some juicy meat on the grill."
"I have to go meet my friend at the library in an hour."

So I needed to fix the spelling of flavor and asked, with typo,  as in the screenshot,  for another sentence for male. I got a list. I needed to adjust the one I chose to make the lion lazy too.

It was easy enough to paste that into an H5P Fill in the Blanks Content and get a cloze in Glow Blogs.

Diversion to Other Geeky Territory

The Fill in the missing blanks content in H5P takes text with the words you want to be blank surrounded by asterisks. Since I’d copied the sentences into a text editor to replace the quotations, I set the document format to markdown, selected the words and pressed ⌘-i.

Markdown Text Edit Italic animation

I then wondered if I could get ChatGPT to add the asterisks for me, so I asked: with an asterisk before and after each word. This it did, but as it typed then it seems that ChatGPT uses markdown, so as it typed the closing astrisk the enclosed word became italic. So back TextMate for me.
