Accurate Web Searches
During our research into different Catholic religious orders, we used the internet to conduct our own independent research. We were conscious of using reliable search engines and making our searches more accurate by using key words and Boolean searches. We also learnt about the reliability of the websites, especially those with 'AD' next to their hyperlink as this could affect how reliable they were if a company was paying for their website to be 'higher' in the rankings.
As part of our Science investigation, we used the Lux app on the iPads to measure the intensity of the light being emitted from the light bulbs. During the investigation, we changed the voltage of the cell to observe the effect on the light intensity. We used the data from the app to create our own line graphs and subsequently form our conclusions.
As part of Judaism week, we put together a presentation using SPLICE about Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. We collected a range of images, before deciding upon the most appropriate to use in our presentation. We then included text, music and short videos in order to make our presentations more engaging for the audience.
