Year 6 Review the camera on the iTouches

This week the focus is the camera (photographs / video filming).

How can the camera be used to enrich our learning?

What lessons have you used the camera and how did you extend your learning?


Is there a lesson that the camera would be REALLY useful – Here is your opportunity to ‘sell‘ to the teachers the reasons for using the camera in any lesson.




  1. I think that the camera is good for education because you can take pictures or videos of something , which would help them improve . You could use it for segments of plays, to look back on it so that they can work on their part.

    I think the ipods are really useful in learning because teachers and adults can use them in lessons like recording a part of a play or a move in P.E and learn how you could make it better. You could use it by taking pictures of a plant day by day and analysing it , so if it was becoming worse from your pictures give it more water or expose it to more light.

  3. I think that the Ipods are good for our education because we can take a picture of our notes and put the whole classes notes together then take picture. I think this would help because then we do not waste all our time looking for extra notes if we didn’t get enough for all our work.

    In year 5 we used the camera on the Ipod to film each other in P.E . We had to make a sequence of dance moves and Mrs Fairburn was videoing us. I think this helped us in our learning because we watched it and we can have a discussion how we can improve the sequence.

    I think that we can enrich our learning by taking lots of pictures of tiny differences in a moving object so we can capture it in motion without using a video. This called Stop-Frame animation.

    I belive that the camera app can be very helpful because you can take many rapid fire pictures there for you could set up a stop frame animation eg of someone running possibly and you would not have to use a video. Also the camera could also be useful by taking pictures of work and later checking the picture and seeing what you could improve. The camera could also be used for recording ideas instead of having to write them, it would be more efficient and faster.
