Giving Students More Options

Are you tired of having students make Keynotes for presentations?  Looking for a more interesting way to get the information out?  The sophomore religion team created a new project this year in which students had options as to how they wanted to present information on an assigned topic.  They created "museum exhibits" that digitally and effectively conveyed important information within three minutes.  We allowed students to choose whatever app best suited their needs--we offered Thinglink, Doodlecast Pro, Prezi, and iMovie as options (click the links for example projects created by the sophomores).  Some projects were (as always) better than others, and we had a few technology glitches along the way, but it was refreshing to give students the freedom to be creative with technology and to watch them troubleshoot when they had problems.
