Digital Expressions

It seems that every day another one of our teachers begins venturing out of the world of traditional essays, reports, and tri-fold presentation boards, and allowing their students instead to demonstrate their learning via digital, multimedia, web-based tools.  Here are two quick examples of recent student work:

  • A Museum Box from Mrs. Massey's 6th Grade on Mesoamerica (click on the pictures to learn more) and 
  • Two Prezis (one and two) from Mrs. Perl's 11th and 12th Grade Chumash class (click on the arrow to get an in-depth analysis of the parasha)
Not surprisingly, the response from the students has been overwhelmingly enthusiastic and the sophistication of the products they are producing - using software they have completely taught themselves - continues to amaze us.
