NASA have greats election of audio files at NASA: Connect > Audi and Ringtones.
My Year 7/8 students selected then edited these in Audacity to create loops for a soundscape to accompany the Apollo 11 Moon landing.
NASA Videos are available at Apollo 11 HD Videos.
I needed a quick way to record my use of the general Capabilities in my my programs. I tried a few different configurations, but this one seems to work well.
There’s a title section at the top for unit title, year level and date. The capabilities are in two sections: ‘Supporting students to become successful learners’ and ‘Developing ways of being, behaving and learning to live with others’. There’s a checklist of elements for each capability with a small section for notes. I use this to jot down what I’m specifically doing in that unit to teach / assess the element.
Since using the checklist, I’m discovering that I’m actually teaching to the capabilities more than I thought. The element descriptions are a handy reminder of the scope of each capability too.
Two versions are available for download: a Word file that you can edit and a pdf version.
