How I Use It
3rd graders were looking for a way to present their "Passion" project to the class. Students found a useable background image and were asked to add at least one text item, one video of themself acting out the passion, and one link to a YouTube video. This project was then projected using Airserver as the students presented their passion to the class.
My Take
My overall opinion is that students are very motivated to add the items which creates a positive learning environment. Individuals are so engaged that they learn more by researching the information they want to include. They also spend more time while creating their own the information to include beause the outcome is a project that they can't wait to share!
