Students learned about the life of famous abolitionist and suffragist Harriet Tubman. They wrote about her, and drew pictures of her life, and recorded themselves speaking about her. With the help of a teacher, they uploaded their files to a shared web page featuring their artwork and recordings.
Children used the camera app on an iPod Touch to take pictures of their original artwork. A teacher helped hold the iPod steady as the kids took their pictures. Then they used an app called Shadow Puppet to describe the scene they drew. Lastly, with the help of a teacher, they used an app called Padlet to combine all their files in an online common space (a platform also called Padlet.)
