Using Tablets for Ancient Civilization Projects by Brianna Pride

Final Project for EDT 505 submitted by Brianna Pride:

During sixth grade, students learn about Ancient Civilizations in China, Greece, Egypt, and Rome.  This cross-curricular project provides students with the opportunity to use technology as a tool to deepen their understanding of these topics and demonstrate what they have learned.  Students use tablets and iPads as a tool to research, take notes, collaborate with peers, write essays, create a multimedia presentation, and present their finished products to peers.  This video explores the process, tools, and resources students use to complete their projects.
