However, although the occasional network error bothered us, we emerged from the 2013-14 school year with students who were better typists, who quickly logged in (even first grade classes got their login time down to less than 5 minutes), and who navigated Google Docs with aplomb.
After Mr. Jones and I conferred about an idea for a new project, I approached all the 4th grade teachers with an idea for a multimedia presentation project for all the students in 4th grade. Google Presentations, internet research, and voice thread would all be utilized.
It is called the "Who Inspires Me" project, and here is my example shown to the students:
Here are some of the student projects, with the full list of project links below.
Congratulations, 4th graders!
