I love this project so much because it was truly an authentic, student led experience from start to finish! Students worked in small groups to create informative movies about a part of the brain they wanted to explore. Students used the augmented reality app, Augmenter, to explore parts of the brain. This app is AMAZING. I blogged about it before HERE. The free version comes with 13 different models while the paid version has over 300 models. To complete this project we only needed the free version since the brain was one of the 13!
The last step to this project was working as a class to compile the images and video clips to make one big movie using Windows Movie Maker. This movie will be shown on morning announcements and tweeted out to Goldie Hawn, the founder of Mind Up! Once again, my favorite thing about this project was the authentic nature in which students led the way from start to finish.
