Morrill Student Tech Projects
Students used Thinglink to explain a concept they learned recently in another class with embedded links. This student chose to explain the performance evaluations they are asked to do for her music class.
A Greek mythology project asked students to convey information about a Greek god or goddess through autobiography. One student chose to insert autobiographical annotations about Persephone into a Google map, and another created Helen of Troy’s Instagram page.
Students were asked to research the profession of an adult they knew, then conduct an interview, and then create a website to present their research and interview. This student created a thoughtful and well-researched site about her massage therapist, who has help her with volleyball-related injuries and soreness.
This project had students research a current, cutting-edge technology, then imagine what life will be like when that technology matures for 40 years. They then presented both the current technology and the imagined future tech in a website.
This grammar project was completed during an 87 minute class period. Students used the iPad app Explain Everything to show how a participial phrase can be moved within a sentence to affect style and meaning.
