Use these examples of projects created by students to inspire your technology integration during Black History Month.
Creative use of technology can engage students, and help you integrate your iPads, PCs, or Chromebooks into the curriculum.
These multimedia projects were created by students using Wixie.
Students research an important person and summarize their findings in the form of a trading card. Turn it into a card game, by assigning points and powers and developing rules for playing cards against each other.
Students connect with the past as they write a first-person account of events in history.
Students create a portfolio for a significant person in history to showcase this person's contributions to the community and our life today.
To help students better understand the perspectives of those in different times and cultures, have them develop newsletters that recall and retell historic events.
Students create an eBooks to inform others about Black citizens who have impacted our world.
Use the Black History Month choice board in Wixie to transfer responsibility to students to determine how they would like to show their learning.
Mrs. Harlow was modeling the writing process before her students began independent research & writing projects. Students planned in Wixie. This was also a great opportunity to celebrate contributions of amazing black individuals as we continue to celebrate #BlackHistoryMonth pic.twitter.com/XTQfJyj75p— Henderson ES (@HNESHuskies) February 26, 2022
