Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

As teachers, we struggle with assessing student progress while at the same time nurturing creativity and skills necessary for 21st-century learners. The objective of this interactive presentation is to provide K-12 teachers with a novel approach to using technologies in the classroom as a way of demonstrating students’ understanding of content while allowing them to create a media-rich presentation based around a virtual museum model. The virtual museum model takes advantage of a hyperlinked powerpoint shell that students can populate with media rich content. The resulting presentation is a personal expression of the students’ grasp of the content area. Attendees will be provided with a description and demonstration of the model as well as resources they can take back and implement in their classroom.
