While brainstorming challenging and interesting display ideas, COVID-19 hit again, tilting our decision towards creating individual websites to showcase their learning. All the students worked hard to build their websites to share with the community.
In order to create effective websites, students had to learn a number of digital skills including how to create banners, insert photos, embed links, design puzzles and comic strips to entertain and inform the audience.
We considered our audience while comparing and contrasting the items throughout their development and presenting it in an exciting and straightforward format.
Investigating the history of our objects, we created visual time lines, showing how things changed over time - creating multiple pages, putting thought into the layout, and using a combination of visual and written information. We demonstrated our understanding of what we had researched by including text to inform the readers using our own words.
