The Golden Child – A Manaiakalani Film

One of the things that we in Room 5 especially enjoy is playing a game of Golden Child on the basketball court. We created a new character called the “Golden Child”, who became the main character in our film.

During the making of the film, we had to give everyone a role to play, so that we were all part of the film. We had main actors, extras, filming crews ,costume designers/makers and voice actors. We had a lot of fun making the film, especially creating the green screen effect where the Golden Child is flying in the air. Another favourite part was when Fern got to eat the chocolate cake, full disclosure he only had one big bite and there was cake everywhere!

We are very proud of our film and we hope that you enjoy it as much as we do.


Copyright laws and t-shirt designs

Today in Cybersmartwe learned about copyright law and attribution. To use someone else’s work, you have to have their permission, or it must be free to use. For this task we designed three different t-shirts.

  • The first one was from Google images, and would not be able to be printed because of copyright.
  • The second one was from the explore tool. It could be printed, but only with attribution.
  • The third one we created ourselves, which means we can print it if we wanted to.

Scams and Phishing – Cybersmart Challenge

Today in Cybersmart we learned about the importance of looking at emails, websites, pop-ups and messages very carefully. Scams and phishing sites and emails aim to take your data and personal information. You can try the challenge here for yourself.

Google Meet Etiquette

In Cybersmart we have been focussing on Smart Relationships. One of the things we looked at was the idea of making sure we have good Google Meet Etiquette when/ if we are on Google meets. Google meet etiquette basically means Google meet good manners.

We watched Mr Ferguson’s Cybersmart Challenge then completed the task that goes with it.

Do you have good Google Meet Ettiquette.
