Presentations from The Rockstar Stage
The One Conference 2017
Rockstar Stage Presenter: Marlene Figueroa
Banting Elementary Teacher
In this talk, Marlene shares how she turned the Waukesha history unit and bus tour, something that her students take part in each year, into a tour that featured their voices and research. Student research and writing was featured in the book and students tapped on the location markers in their iBooks as they reached the destinations on the bus tour.
Marlene did this using iBooks Author (available for the Mac) and had students share their research on assigned topics using Google Docs. Once students submitted their work, Marlene compiled all of the work into an iBook and shared it with students on their iPads. Once on the iPad, the iBook could go offline on the bus tour and students could still access the writing of their peers to gain a deeper understanding of Waukesha's unique history.
