Daisy and Drago

Daisy and Drago is an animation by 6-year old Turkish pupils under the guidance of two teachers from the Terakki Foundation Schools in Istanbul, Turkey, English teacher Miss. Özge Karaoğlu and animation teacher Mrs. Havva Kangal Erdoğan. Daisy and Drago aims to entertain young learners while they learn a foreign language (in this case English) and help them to build permanent learning in English. The pupils made drawings in their animation class, coloured them and by putting them behind each other, an animation was created. The pupils also dubbed the animation for a Turkish and an English version.

In a repetitive and funny story young children can learn to use the English phrases “I can – I can’t – Can you?” as the young girl Daisy invites her friend Drago to several of her favourite sports activities, but he can’t do them as he is a dragon and she is a human, but there is one thing that Drago can do...

By integrating Art and English lessons, pupils had the opportunity to learn and combine artistry and language skills during the production of this animation film and their audiovisual aids are now an important part of the resulting animation. They learned how to record their voices and sounds for the animation, but also to create and maintain teamwork and present their artwork to an audience.

This film has been used in English lessons as a teaching resource in English language teaching. The resulting animation is also part of lessons as Özge and Havva explain: “We have used this film in our kindergarten classes when we teach sports . Before we present the topic we show some snapshots of the video where they do different sports and we ask the kids to name them. We ask students about their favorite sports then we ask them which sports they can do. They look at the snapshots and decide what Daisy can do and what Drago can’t. After they watch the film, students role-play the story and discuss what Daisy and Drago can or can’t do. They also watch the film without the sound and then try to remember what the characters say in different scenes. Another related activity is preparing posters for the film and making puppets of the characters.” Follow-up stories were later created such as 'Daisy and Drago and the Magic Wand', ...

Daisy and Drago won the MEDEA Award for Creativity and Innovation 2009.

Flick School

A practical podcast for CURIOUS teachers and learners looking to be more creative and digitally fit in today’s classrooms. I will post a podcast every week focusing on a variety of multimedia topics. I will share ideas, projects, tips, interviews, & creativity workouts (called “noodling”) with you.

Also, given the interactivity of the web, I will post and share ideas from other teachers who are using the powerful tools of multimedia in their everyday class. I hope this is a useful resource for you. I have learned so much from others. It’s my turn to share with you!

Anti-Anti

This multimedia supported pervasive game was created by five secondary school pupils of the Sint-Lievenscollege Ghent (Belgium) around the theme of bullying and racketeering to sensitise students against useless violence. Students participating in this 50-minute lifesize game had to search a fictitious murderer in their school through clues provided in mp3-files and video clips.

The five girls who created this game, set up a campaign to attract their fellow pupils to participate in the lifesize Cluedo game with flyers and a website. The story was that a boy in school who had bullied one of his classmates, was found dead at his school. There were four suspects, so fellow students had to find the actual killer. The creators had created video clues but separated audiotracks and videotracks so participants needed to download mp3 files in advance and once the game began at school, they could find the accompanying videos at different locations in the school and then link sound with video.

In the Dutch project website the mp3 tracks could be first downloaded (http://anti-anti.slc-gent.be - with frames - watch in Internet Explorer). The English project website shows the different videos and a segment about the game of the local news. All videos are Dutch.

This project won the MEDEA Special Jury Award 2008 and so an (English) interview with the pupils' teacher was recorded as part of the project's showcase: http://www.medea-awards.com/showcase/anti-anti. In the interview, he explains that the students used their own material as the school didn't have video or audiomaterial at the time.
