Historical, Enchanting, and Adorable
Laura Wright's 3rd grade students have truly assembled a historical (and dare I say… adorable) publication to honor the heritage of the Eanes Pioneer Child. I want to thank her for inspiring us all and raising the bar on what students can create on the iPad and assembling such an authentic learning treasure and digital delight.
Pioneers in West Austin
Great book created by children about the life of a Eanes pioneer.
A superb blend of solid teaching & technology, sprinkled with youth :)
A perfect example of highlighting each child in varying capacities and then being orchestrated by a plugged-in teacher. Not just models, the kids wrote music, essays and provided acting sequences.
The book is informative, well crafted and a very useful reference to any student, worldwide, wanting to explore these American times. If I had this level of production work to galvanize my history studies - I may have had a different career path! History is fUn … with an iPAD !!!
Congratulations to Ms Wright & the Eanes School District for a peak into how you educate children.
