Our First Slideshow: October 8-12

I have been wanting to get students more and more involved in creating content for our class blog. It is my goal to help my students become creators of technology, not just consumers of technology. (Thanks Ms. Larson) So I finally decided to have Historians as one of our class jobs. Two students take photos and take a few notes throughout the week - other students can participate in this as well; however, it is the primary responsibility of two students - and they learn how to edit, upload, and post a slideshow highlighting their learning experiences. 

This is the students' first experience with this, so we'd love some of your feedback. What do you think? Do you like what you see? Why or why not? Are there things you would like to see more of less of? Is there a way the captions can be improved? Any specific suggestions would be greatly appreciated. 

We hope you enjoy. Come back soon to see what a fun field trip we had this week! 

Mr. Pahl
