Here are some ideas for how your child can create:
- Design a comic strip using new vocabulary, or concepts.
- Allow your child to create a 'test' for you to take. Ask them to include topics they are learning now.
- Create a movie, song or digital presentation that shows your teacher what you did while at home.
- Conduct an experiment and document the outcome (video, pictures, and journal).
- Research an individual and then use the app Tellagami (or another app/platform) to create an autobiographical presentation.
Please contact your child's teachers directly with questions related to assignments and assessments. Personalized learning is not an occurrence, rather a continuum. Teachers may in fact be using platforms like Edmodo, Blendspace, Blackboard Collaborate or Google to ccommunicate and collaborate with students remotely.
