Today I worked with Mrs. Wiggins 5th grade class at Altara ES. Using the Chromebooks we made Haiku Deck presentations about the Great Northwestern Tree Octopus. You can find more information about this endangered species here http://zapatopi.net/treeoctopus/. Haiku Deck is a simple presentation tool, similar to Powerpoint, that can be accessed from nearly any device as it is web based and also has an iOS app.
The students loved this activity and have a fun April Fools presentation they can share with their families when they go home!
Created with Haiku Deck, the free presentation app
Teachers attended a Chromebook training where they learned login procedures, available Google services, and classroom implications. We are thrilled to have this technology so readily available in our schools and can't wait to see what wonderful things happen in the classrooms!
