Term 1 Holiday Homework Due 2/5

Prezi Presentation and a Photo Essay


1. Prezi Presentation:


Make a Prezi presentation about your holidays.  Mind map what you did, share information and add pictures.
The site is easy to log in with using Facebook.  Once you've finished making your Prezi presentation put the link up on your blog.
If you can't figure out how to use Prezi, google some tutorials or look up some of the videos on you tube.  Add something to your presentation each day so you don't forget what you've done each day :)


2. Photo Essay:
You need to produce a photo essay on a topic of your choice.
Don't know what I'm on about?  Let Wikipedia enlighten you...
"A photo-essay (or photographic essay) is a set or series of photographs that are intended to tell a story or evoke a series of emotions in the viewer. A photo essay will often show pictures in deep emotional stages. Photo essays range from purely photographic works to photographs with captions or small notes to full text essays with a few or many accompanying photographs. Photo essays can be sequential in nature, intended to be viewed in a particular order, or they may consist of non-ordered photographs which may be viewed all at once or in an order chosen by the viewer"
So, you could make one about one of your days during the holidays, an event or a place you've visited.

  2. Ameleigh told me to tell you that she has no internet until Thursday because that's when it renews (she's capped because she ran out gigs).

    1. If it fits in with the rest of what you want to put up and isn't just you putting a picture of alcohol up to show off, then sure.

    1. That's fine - pick a topic and take some, or find some on the internet (just be sure to say where you found them).

  7. Oh, good thing I gave you guys an extension aye?!

    You could post the pictures up one after the other or if you want a fancy collage there are different programmes you can use. I made all the ones in our yearbook with Picasa which you can download http://picasa.google.com/.

    I just tried Photovisi, it's super easy to use. http://www.photovisi.com/
    Choose your pics, arrange them, click finish, click the 'click here to download collage' and then click 'Email collage to friends' - email it to yourself. Go check the email, I clicked the 'click this link' button under the picture in the email and it took me to a page where I then clicked on the 'click here to download collage' link. And it downloaded it as a photo on my computer. It's pretty self explanatory if you just follow it along.

    George, Anne and my Year 12 learner Alice have good examples of photo essays you can look at. http://aliceenglishl2.blogspot.co.nz/
