I have been looking at different ways to incorporate technology into each Virginia history standard, and I am excited to see where this takes the anticipation of the students. I will try and document the types of technology that I have used and the reaction by the children. Some of it will be student led and some will be teacher led.
The first type of technology I am using it PowToons in connection with YouTube. I created a short video about the VS.3e standard with some more recent audio to entice the students. It took awhile to make, but I think that is because it was my first one and there is a learning curve. Overall, though, it was fun to play with the features and customize the video.
I am hoping to expand on this and make more videos related to the Virginia history standards.
