This week, KIS 4th graders are finishing up the design of their mission patches. It was interesting to see many patches from NASA were not circles, but squares, ovals, and even triangles. In addition to finishing up the patches, students had a short introduction to the green screen and were able to take a visit to the moon!
Our 5th graders started a project on creating Googlinks. (in the words if Google Certified Innovator, Eric Curts..
“If you are not familiar with Thinglink, it is a powerful online tool that lets users annotate images with pop-up text, pictures, videos, weblinks, documents, and more.”)
So, students are using Google Drawings to create a Googlink on content of their choice. Some students are even making educational videos via the green screen to add! This project will be completed in the new year.
