In my 8th grade American History class, we are in the midst of the Civil War. After debating Constitutional issues, slavery and states' rights issues, and issues on the Emancipation Proclamation, each student is researching his/her own Civil War battle, event, or notable person. The class is enjoying each others' presentations now, and I have been enjoying the many different tech tools that my students are trying out or honing. In so many ways, these presentations are better than a straight poster presentation. For one, they are mostly permanent! Unless they get deleted, these presentations will always be available. AND, they don't take up any closet, wall or counter space!
I hope you enjoy them as I did. I hope they will provide inspiration for more tech integration in your history class, as well. Stay tuned for the rest. These are only the tip of the iceberg.
