Today our respiration rap from 2015's Year 12 Biology class clocked over 2,000 views on youtube!
It was also retweeted by Dr Rich Allen, a teacher-trainer whose 2-day course was the most inspiring PD I have ever been to.
His use of music and movement in teaching and learning is something that really resonated with me, as well as 'riding the wave' of engagement by 'changing state' near the peak of engagement.
I'm so stoked that he thought what the Bio kids did was a good example of learning through movement and music :)
Unfortunately this year I haven't had time to record and film another full music video in time for the Manaiakalani Film Festival, despite having 3 songs already written and ready to go about photosynthesis, genetic variation and hotspot volcanoes!
Time seems short this year :( Hopefully we'll get on to filming one of the songs in Term 4 - the challenge is out to the 2016 Year 12 Biology class!!
Instead, I'll just repost the Respiration Rap to enjoy :)
