This summer, I was given the opportunity to attend the ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education) Conference in Philadelphia, PA. I discovered a great site to encourage project based learning in my classroom. This site is TripWow!
TripWow is an online slideshow creator that is easy enough for my 4th graders to figure out without any instruction. I love the animated maps that give kids a perspective of how far they are traveling. Take a look at some of the TripWows my students created on a place they like to visit. http://www.ecboe.org/Page/11740
