iCollaboratory Event

Friday, April 20th, was the annual iCollaboratory Event to show educators in the Chicago/Joliet area how to use the iCollaboratory with their students.

The presentation is here: http://goo.gl/nlvMa.

For 2 years I’ve participated in the iCollaboratory projects with the 5th graders in our school.  The projects we’ve done are:

  • Scariest Stories and Fall Poetry
  • What I’m Most Thankful For
  • Moon Over Us
  • A Day in Our Neighborhood
  • Songs My Family Taught Me
There are many others to choose from, but these fit our schedule and level.
Each project:
  • students take a survey
  • create a web page
  • add their writings, images, voice, and/or video to their page
  • comment on others’ projects
When the students know they are writing for an audience, their quality level increases.  It’s great to see…and read!
