Students devised a plan of action with their partner of how they would creatively teach another student their fact. Ideas included but weren't limited to a poem, digital poster, movie, song/rap, or a comic strip. They were offered the following choices of digital platforms to carry out their plan: Pixie, Comic Life, Powerpoint, Google Presentation/Movenote, or the apps, Video Star, TeleStory or Pic&Vid Stitch.
My FAVORITE project from above is one that I want to highlight for Tech with Jen's Be Appy Monday link-up.
Two girls from this class wanted to teach 12x8 by singing a song. They re-wrote the lyrics to the popular Frozen song, Let it Go, and used the FREE app, Video Star, to film themselves singing. This app is only for lip syncing so we had to get creative! We imported the Let it Go instrumental version into Video Star and the girls sang their song. Next, we uploaded their video through Google Drive to a laptop and pulled it into Windows Movie Maker. There, they recorded a voice over and published their movie! They girls absolutely LOVED and were so PROUD of their video.
Be sure to check out some other apps in the link-up and feel free to link up a post of your own!
