TP-Issue14.5 | 75 3 | CHANGING IMAGES If you have a school website, and with the right parental permission, you may be able to attach photos of pupils to the headlines. If not, explain to the children that all images have their own web address that can be accessed by right clicking on it and selecting the ‘copy image address’ option. This is also a useful opportunity to introduce children to abbreviations such as ‘.jpeg/.jpg’ and the idea that addresses start with ‘http’. In the same way that you replaced the headline text, show how to delete the existing image address and paste in the new one. This should replace the image on the screen in front of you. Check for understanding then let children create their own ‘fake news’. Make sure pupils take a screenshot of their creations. You may need to show them how to paste this into Microsoft Paint. Save the image in a shared folder so children can see each other’s work. End the lesson by selecting some of the best images to share at the front of the class. Adam Parkhouse was a silver winner at the Pearson Teaching Awards and is a Y5 teacher at Little Plumstead C of E Primary, Norwich. l What do the bracketed phrases ‘<img>’ and ‘<p>’ stand for (image, paragraph)? Which one changes the image? l How do you find the web address of an image? l How can you make your changes look believable? USEFUL QUESTIONS show the children how it is highlighted. Clicking on the box reveals a strip of code. Get the children to find the original headline in the code. Using the backspace key, remove the text and replace it with a sensible suggestion from the class. When you hit update, the class will see the clear change. It is worth repeating this before letting pupils attempt a change of their own. have little knowledge of HTML code (as may you!). The key elements to show them are the tags that say ‘<img>’ and ‘<p>’. This requires whole-class modelling. Giving pupils the step-by-step guide you created earlier will allow them to refer to the process during the lesson. Hover your mouse over a piece of text on the Newsround website and l How could pupils use this new skill in other ways or on other websites? Why is this potentially dangerous? What are the benefits of it? Is someone who doesn’t use the internet going to know something is wrong? l Ask pupils to make their own tutorial using screengrabs for another child to use. Consider using screen recording technology if you have it available. If not, Powerpoint or similar works well. l Investigate the webpage for other codes aside from ‘<img>’ and ‘<p>’. Make a list of them. Click on them, read the code and see if you can change anything else.
