Interesting. Using web 2.0 technology to create a narrative and tell a story. The whole process appears to have been captured using screencasting software in which zoom-ins and motion were used to emphasis key points within the story.
Via the Bionic Teaching site (here) consider how this might be taken further: “You’ve got lots of room to play with this concept in a variety of subjects – history and English are pretty obvious but you could use it wherever there’s an interaction of objects and create a narrative around it. It’d work in chemistry (enzymes as instigators comes to mind), science (biomes, cell interactions) and government (it’d be a fun way to look at the bill to law process- maybe as a Google Map).”Could be an interesting way of getting students to outline and explore subjects / projects.
