Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

The purpose of my presentation is to show how students can use components of programs they are already familiar with to create their own work to showcase what they have learned and for teachers to assess their level of knowledge.
The programs used to appsmash in this presentation are either free or inexpensive and accessible to all students. The main examples use Google Apps, WeVideo, VoiceThread, SeeSaw, Pixlr, Telligami and Thinglink.
Examples of student work will be included with student narration describing how they completed the project.
Detailed lesson plans, broken down into steps will show how these types of projects can be completed with the teacher being the facilitator and the student having choice in how they complete the assignment. A Google Slide show will illustrate each step in the process and a video tutorial will focus on the steps in the order that they can be completed to produce a successful appsmashing project.
Evidence of success will completed projects and suggestions for other standards that can assessed using appsmashing.

Outline

How to take a standard that you teach, look at your current assessment choices and determine ways that this could be accomplished through the use of a variety of apps that your students already have access to and experience with.
