Designing cities

 

We’ve been working on what makes a city and how do people and nature impact a city’s design.

All of my students created some sort of presentation, because it was open to what they could use I got a lot of different types of submissions.  One of my students had the rubric embedded into his project so he could show exactly how he was addressing each aspect. One used Explain Everything to create a more interactive presentation, and Milind used a slide show based approach to illustrate his creation.

My learning from this is that I feel like I got better quality presentations because I didn’t tell them what to use, by giving them freedom I learned a lot more about my students’ preferred styles.

More than that the presentations were different which made it more exciting for me to see every presentation.  Which made me more engaged with their learning and more excited to provide multiple forms of feedback.
