Week 3 - CLICKTOSAVE - St John Ambulance

Rikki Cameron from Stjohn_wa on Vimeo.

The CLICKTOSAVE online course by St John Ambulance provides people with an opportunity to learn important first aid skills quickly and efficiently. As you can see for this video this could save someone's life. We will be using this website in class to work through your next task, which is analysing a website or other digital text together in class before you start the task on a text of your own choice. To go to the website, you can click on this link.

Week 1 - Ground Rules

Thanks to everyone who worked so hard and collaboratively today on a shared Google Doc to create a set of  Ground Rules for our class. I really appreciate the fact that we were all able to work together to create this and think it is an excellent set of ground rules, well done to everyone.

Week 1 - Literary Techniques Video

We will complete an activity on language techniques today and watch this video together and discuss them as a group. You will then work on a task analysing an image, individually, in pairs or small groups and then we will discuss literary techniques again together as a class. We will also look at all of the resources that are available on Moodle for you to expand you knowledge of this topic and your ability to engage with and create texts.

Week 1 - Student Timetable and Activities Today

Here is a copy of your current timetable which includes my email address and the contact details for the Portfolio Manager if you have any concerns regarding the course that you do not wish to discuss with me. Today we will also discuss and learn how to use Google Plus, Moodle and complete activities on features of print texts and a range of getting to know you activities.  We will also create a set of ground rules for the class, collaboratively, through our newly created Google Plus Community. We will also review some common grammar problems and learn about plagiarism and paraphrasing.
