Students in Mrs. Young’s fourth grade classroom at Harry S Truman Elementary School are using Falcon Apps to enhance their learning. As part of the fourth grade curriculum, students study the different kingdoms of living things. Mrs. Young’s students each researched an animal to determine the animal’s kingdom and whether it was a vertebrate or invertebrate. Students used the Destiny catalog to access websites for information. As students found information and pictures they shared their findings in Falcon Apps, creating a shared presentation.
In the past, students have researched topics and prepared presentations using Keynote and PowerPoint. However, Falcon Apps allows the students to take their learning to the next level. The students were able to work collaboratively online to create a shared document and compile findings in one location. Students developed technology skills, collaboration skills and research skills including media literacy and information literacy while learning important content.
