Today the 5th graders took over the library with excitement, creativity, and so much collaborating.
They were given a choices and freedom to create.....this always leads to a whole lot of fun.
As you know they have been working on "Project 3D Olympics" for the last three weeks in the library.here at this first post....And another from this week as they created their very own Olympic symbols.
one or more of the digital tools in the "Web 2.0 Tools" Symbaloo webmix.
As a class, we discussed several of the digital tools....Ones they have used, ones they wanted to use, and just ones they really wanted to try. Now they were brainstorming with their group on which ones would be a match for them.
They LOVE having this freedom and choice! To be told they can pick any tools to showcase their research and knowledge is important to them and something they take very seriously.
They choose a lot of different digital tools. There were a few of the groups who are using...
Josie, Kylie, and Lucy put together an AWESOME Animoto with their questions and research.
As you can see, the 5th graders, and all young people, love having choice, freedom, and the space to create and collaborate.
It brings so much to any community.
