For example, take one of our amazing teachers Mary Thacker, 4th grade teacher at MM. She decided to give her students a chance to be content creators rather than content consumers. Students were learning about regions of the United States and were asked to create their own digital book describing different aspects of their region.
Mrs. Thacker gave her students time to learn and teach each other how to use the app, Book Creator, before they started working on their projects. Once students understood the app better, they dove right in on making their digital book. If you were to walk into this 4th grade classroom, you would have seen students engaged with this assignment, helping each other with questions about the process, and thinking critically about the content and design of their books. Students will eventually use these books to present their information.
