Luke's Way of Looking by Nadia Wheatley and Matt Ottley

My video has become the University of South Queensland (USQ) exemplar video for the Graduate Diploma in Teaching course, module EDX2170. If you have any questions about this video please post them in YouTube

An introductory video to Luke's Way of Looking by Nadia Wheatley and Matt Ottley


Made in iMovie

This high quality multimodal text / video introduces the ideas behind Nadia Wheatley and Matt Ottley's delightful Luke's Way of Looking. It is designed for Years 1 and 2 but equally suited for ages 5 to 10 and up. I suggest setting this video to watch as flipped classroom homework, or use in class as a way into the book.

Potential enquiry questions include:

• Does everyone look the same?
• Do we all see things the same way?
• What do people think of you?
• How do you feel about that?
• Luke's Way Of Looking

Finally it seem to have been reprinted, and quite rightly so !
I produced this multimodal text within iMovie.

At points in the movie there are 3 audio tracks, narration, sound effects and green screen all running together. I made this movie back in 2015 and my old mac did struggle to report it. For recent macs it shouldn’t be a problem.

The only negative with iMovie is that it is a little fiddly balancing all the audio with small control sliders, but not prohibitively so.
