Animated Gifs An artist known only as Rrrrrrrroll will leave you spinning with some gif art that works hard to put the art in the gif genre. And yes that was intended as a pun. I guess you could think of the work as ‘animated photography’. If you know or find any more information about the artist please drop a line or two in the comment section. So I sorta owe Matthew DiVito AKA Mr. Div a post since I posted some of his work last week and didn’t credit it properly. CLIL videos Why should CLIL teachers support learners to work actively with the input provided? Firstly, if learners are actively involved in thinking about the content and/or the language, they will reach a better understanding of both. If they re-organise or change input into another form, learners will process and comprehend input better. Tasks for guiding understanding might include, for example, changing information from a diagram into a text, or from a text into a picture or role-play.
Graphics Interchange Format The Graphics Interchange Format (better known by its acronym GIF; /ˈdʒɪf/ or /ˈɡɪf/) is a bitmap image format that was introduced by CompuServe in 1987 and has since come into widespread usage on the World Wide Web due to its wide support and portability. The format supports up to 8 bits per pixel for each image, allowing a single image to reference its own palette of up to 256 different colors chosen from the 24-bit RGB color space. It also supports animations and allows a separate palette of up to 256 colors for each frame. These palette limitations make the GIF format unsuitable for reproducing color photographs and other images with continuous color, but it is well-suited for simpler images such as graphics or logos with solid areas of color.

Eighteen years ago we designed and opened the school with the idea that we would have creation labs in the Media Center, GT room, and the TV studio. We started with video production, iMovie, Specular LogoMotion, Hyperstudio, and animation with Hollyood High kids. Here's an example of an EARLY (2003) video production called Bookfellas, featuring some Guy Ritchie-esque film direction techniques. These kids are now all grown up and we've kept evolving, too!
