After students researched chosen destinations after reading the book Highest, Coldest, Hottest, Deepest, they demonstrated understanding by creating an infographic to explain facts about their destination.
The end results blew me away! Each student created a VR field trip and then shared their creations with class members!
Other uses for CoSpaces:
- Book reports: Create the setting of your story. We have been reading Shiloh, and my students have been hooked by this book. I had them create a VR scene of Marty's home and Judd's home.
- Demonstrate new learning: I had a student decide on his own to create an amazing infographic about the Oregon Trail. He's been reading a nonfiction book on this topic during independent reading. He emailed me on a Saturday morning his amazing final project. Of course, I right away opened his work and was taken back to the time of covered wagons, and learned some interesting facts at each stop!
CoSpace website discusses many other ways to utilize this in classrooms:
- Modeling 3-Dimensional figures (without the mess of glue and sticky fingers!)
- Creative play (let students shine with their creativity!)
- Virtual Exhibitions
- Infographics (my favorite use so far!)
