Reinventing Sharing

The most common way that the learners that I have share their learning is using Google Slides. This is an easy way to share learning that they have created but when 30 learners are doing the same way each time it gets a little bit repetitive. I gave my learners a challenge, they can share their learning anyway they wanted for our latest piece of writing.

We have been integrating reading and writing with our novel study. We are reading the book Holes by Louis Sachar. When a few of my boys asked if they can present their writing with a movie I said sure, but they have to get the writing completed first.

The learning intentions we have been focusing on over the last two weeks are:

They used slides to organise their information.

This plan informed their content for their video


  1. This is really useful, l like the idea of the learners creating a video based on their writing. I could definitely do this with my target learners as it links clearly to using digital tools which is a main focus within my inquiry.

  2. What a great way to engage students in reading novels. You have brought this book to life for them! Digging an actual hole is such a simple, but genius idea to help deepen their understandings of this book and what characters did everyday.
