Our 5th graders just finished up a fun project and created really amazing PhotoPeach's that I couldn't wait to publish in this post.
Within every lesson I pull in several things from the Digital Citizenship, Technology, Library Curriculum, as the ones that I pasted above. For this lesson tying into digital citizenship, I focused on the topic of protecting ones privacy online.mackinVIA. The 5th graders know how to go into the "Groups" within mackinVIA and find the group entitled "Rosen's CyberSmarts Series". There are five titles within this series. They come in print and eBook format.
From the information that the students gained through the eBook and our conversations, they used the Web 2.0 tool PhotoPeach to create slideshows.
I created a simple storyboard for them to use as a guide in creating their slideshow. They pulled information from the eBook and put it into their own words.
And remember one of the standards I wanted to hit during this project was to "Recognize digital resources that are copyright free"so we also reviewed using iClipArt and they used it to find images for the project.
I was very impressed with them and just couldn't wait to share them with everyone.
We hope you enjoy and please feel free to share with your students too.
