I'd like to share a little victory that my class had this year. My class (known as the Year Three Superstars) entered the WeCreate awards, which is an initiative of the Curriculum and Learning Innovation Centre. We entered the 'eStory' category, which involved creating a digital story using a language learnt at school (we chose Vietnamese). We used iMovie to put the video together.
Our entry made it to the finals and they we WON! It was the first time I had entered any competition like it and victory upon our first entry was pretty cool. We attended the award ceremony back in November at the Sydney Opera House.
I've embedded the video, however viewing it on the screen cuts off the captions (which is fine if you understand Vietnamese!) It's probably best for viewing on the following link:
I'm pretty sure the links stay viable until next years winners are put up in their place (Nov. 2013).
The eStory was inspired by 'Are We There Yet?' by Alison Lester. If you're not familiar, it is about a family who take a journey around Australia to discover the natural wonders and awesome sites.

On top of that, we have some seasoned professionals at our school when it comes to technology. They also entered into different categories of the WeCreate awards and we won all four categories that we entered! Our school definitely cleaned up on the day!
