Digital woodlands

Digital woodlands incursion

Creative arts, geography, science and technology

During this Stage 2 incursion students will be introduced to the techniques and methods of digital photography, photo editing and visual text construction on an iPad.

Using an iPad shared between two, students will go on a journey to create a portfolio of photographs that portray the special features of the bushland or natural areas near school.

On return to school students will construct a photo story of their most striking photos using the Book Creator app. They will then select their favourite photo to be printed and framed. 

Printed images can be used to form a gallery for an art appreciation session. Images can be used for digital story telling in other classroom programs.

Recommended maximum 4 classes per day.


Your school and bushland, natural areas close to your school or local area.
