This excitement has boiled over into my every day life and most recently, into my final project for one of my masters classes this summer.
Background: I'm in a cohort to get my masters in Curriculum and Instruction with a concentration in 21st Century Learners from Eastern Mennonite University. This week (June 23-27), we're condensing a semester long class into one week. Luckily, the class isn't too overwhemling, it's just a lot of information and cool web-tools thrown at you really quickly.
So back to my story....
For my final project, we are to create a lesson (that we'll use with our students), using two 21st century (web) tools.
For my project, I'm having my students read biographies and research people. They can then choose from a variety of tools to make something to present to the group. I also had to create examples.
The person I researched? Harry Potter. And guess what? I'm sharing all the examples I made with you:
I highly recommend each tool, but I especially like Animoto for its ease of use, and Meograph because you can record. Of these, Glogster is probably my least favorite, but I really like the final product it makes.
