Teaching with Tech — Landform Museum (Genoa Area Local Schools)


(typing) – I'm Hudson – I'm Julian

– And, we are trying to learn new facts about volcanoes and different land forms – I'm looking at Liam and Jada's marine project (soft uplifting music) – [Narrator] iPads and Chromebooks are the keys to discovery in this student-created Landform Museum at Genoa Elementary School With augmented reality using an app called ROAR, fourth graders create an interactive display where volcanoes erupt off the screen Then, other students learn from that creation

– The first thing you do is you take the iPad and you put it in front of the picture and then it sort of becomes like a 3D, like the words in the picture in the video, it all pops out at you – They're essentially making a poster but, a very much more in-depth poster They're able to add videos, pictures, text with the image that could also be sort of captions and labeling of their landforms It really forces them to dig into the different types of landforms, so they were each assigned a different one And, it was their job to explain to their peers, maybe the most famous ones

How they are formed, where they can be found – Well, you have to look up So, I see that it says Marine State Park and– – We definitely need to give kids choices on how they're presenting information that they've learned And, doing something like this, this is very innovative because there's so many new tools out there nowadays that are leaning towards virtual reality and augmented reality So, just kind of preparing our students for what's out there in the world right now

– What's the biggest cave, Eric? – The biggest cave is Hang Son Doong – Hang Son Doong – Yep – [Narrator] Students uncover answers to questions about the landform by carefully watching a Flipgrid video – I like making videos because I just like, I like people to see me and what I know

– It will pop up on this thing called the grid And so that's why they call it a Flipgrid It's kind of your flipping your classroom where kids are being able to respond The cool thing is you can actually share specific student's responses So, if I said you know, these students

I wanted to share their response with their parents, I could hit the little share button at the top and send that mom and dad a link to directly to that student – We have fun researching together and making projects – The other aspect of the project was doing the research So, that's definitely part of the text standards as that being able to go in and say what information do I need, what's appropriate for the audience that I have as well – [Narrator] Along the way, things don't always go as planned

But, those challenges are also learning opportunities – Some days, the Chromebook on the ROAR, the ROAR wouldn't really load– – It wouldn't load anymore – So we couldn't get our stuff on the ROAR – We just decided to do our Flipgrid to problem solve – Definitely problem solving because while there's only usually one teacher in the room and they're off trying to figure out some things by themselves, so, definitely problem solving

A lot of social interactions with their peers trying to come up with ways to solve the problem Definitely a lot of divvying up work, like maybe one would research some things, one would find a video – I like doing things a little bit more independent I think that's a better way for me to learn – It's kind of fun

– Yes, it's fun because we get to learn new things and see our friends tell us stuff – The biggest advice that I would have was just being willing to try something new Take a chance, nothing's going to work perfectly Not everything worked perfectly with this project that we did But, we problem solved and worked through it and we already have ideas of what we're going to do different next year with the kids

– Yay! – [Students] Bye! (dynamic music)
