Already this morning via my PLN on Twitter I have some ideas for a few suggested projects for my fifth graders. They are already familiar with Wordle, and I was going to introduce Picnik this year. Today I was looking at the new options on Picknik and the light bulb went on inside my head. I am going to show a few tools and let them decide on one or more to introduce themselves to the class.
My idea is to have some examples then offer a menu of choices. Of course, students may use more than one tool. I am thinking some may want to do a Digital Autobiography of sorts. How exciting would that be?
2010-2011 looks to be an exciting year.
