How I Use It
I paired students and assigned them Landmark Supreme Court Cases to design posters around. Students embedded court documents, video clips of news reports, audio clips of the reading of the opinions of the court and hotlinks to related websites and resources. Another use is for teachers to create a single interactive poster all students can explore online as a homework assignment.
My Take
This product works well as a project assessment. I liked the ability to be creative and embed different features that encouraged interaction with the posters. It would be better as a free resource or if a single log in would allow students to create endless amounts of posters instead of just one. Several glitches that need to be worked through. Some videos would not load in certain browsers.
