For this project, my students had a number of ways to demonstrate understanding. Students experimented with Instagram, we looked at creating websites (my kids shied away from that one because is was difficult for them), we recorded some video and the kids edited what they had using the Flip software (easy and a great simple introduction). I learned how to incorporate google classroom, which the kids thought was cool.
I found that we needed far more time than we had planned on, and that part of that time needs to be devoted to revisions after a peer, class or teacher review. Although my students stayed safe by doing what they were more comfortable with and what seemed easier to them, it was a good introduction for many of them.
