Technology in Capstone Projects

Microsoft PowerPoint

Windows Movie Maker

These are just a sampling of the technology tools that students in fourth grade library enrichment class are using to create their Capstone Projects! We love that students are picking the technology that works for them based on their project ideas. Students perceive their options as limitless and as such are defining their plans based on what will convey their ideas the best.(And these are just the technology tools we are using...I will share in a different post some of the creative ways that students are interpreting their assignment outside of the technology realm!)

Students are teaching me that when given the opportunity, student choice enhances both the learning outcomes and the journey towards those outcomes. Now we just need to figure out how to introduce even more tools through the school year to further expand their repertoire for creation!
