We can add objects or pages to our media bank for future use. Firstly we'll create a randomiser with our pupil's names in. We go to the widget bank, select randomiser, click away, and select create new. Now we add our pupil names and click ok.
Clicking on the top left corner to select the widget, we can now access the object accelerator menu and add to media bank. A pop-up will appear and we fill in the title and any keywords. This file is now available from ‘My media bank’.
Another type of object we may want to add to our media bank is a game widget where we create our own game. We are going to create a new pattern in symmetry designer, and when we are finished we go through the same process to add to the media bank.
We can also add multiple items to the media bank as one item, by marquee selecting them (we don’t have to group them first). We can demonstrate this by adding a photo of our own to the picture reveal game.
These three files are now easily accessible every time we have a lesson.
