Once I had introduced and reviewed the reading workshop expectations, I wanted to students to explain them in their own language. I divided the kids into groups and gave them a reading workshop topic (book shopping expectations, reading workshop expectations, choosing good books expectations, reading group expectations, and reading spots expectations). The students then thought about pictures and narration for their 30Hands slide show. We had some help from Mr. Villasana, a technology a guru, who was very impressed with our organization. Here are some examples, one from each fifth grade class, that are all about book shopping. I like that each video is unique, but still covers the content.
Reflection: I really liked using 30Hands and it was easy for the students to use too. It was very user friednly, especially for the narration portion. The students thoroughly enjoyed taking pictures, being subjects within the picture, and adding narration.
