Give your curriculum a spark with these energizing projects even technophobes will love. Explore strategies for implementation and new ideas for assessing learning. Over the past couple of years, we have developed some sure fire "first projects” using Pixie. These projects connect to curriculum and make our teachers and students believe in the power of producing, not just consuming media. Many of these multimedia projects are then "globally published” online. Students become so excited because they have become "real authors”. This initial success led many of my teachers to see how creative technology projects enhanced their curriculum. Several of our teachers started out simply creating class newsletters to enable them to become more comfortable with the technology. They are now making logical connections to how they can tie their curriculum to multimedia. As a bonus, they are finding their students are more interested in the subject matter. During this session I will be sharing cross-curricular samples of student work. I will also be collaborating with the audience on ideas for a short story. I will start a Pixie project to tell their story. Then, I will enlist some volunteers to add some illustrations and lend their voices to read some text into Pixie. We will choose some background music and prepare the project for publication. I will demonstrate the various options to share the project and show how quickly it can be "globally published”.
