For the first day of the project, Mrs. Herold and her students learned about a website called Flippity.net that takes content from a spreadsheet and turns it into dynamic flash cards. The cards can be different colors, have customized text, include images, and even include YouTube videos! As a study resource, this is a phenomenal way to get students more interested in compiling information. Mrs. Herold's students had bigger goals - take the information you have gleaned about your project, put it into the flash cards, then create a Google Slide presentation about the disorder. BOOM!
For the third day of the activity, Mrs. Nemecek, Etiwanda's teacher-librarian, came in to speak with the students about GALE. GALE is a robust database that provides quality sources of information for their research as a part of their research for the genetic disorders that were assigned to them. Another quality feature is the ability to highlight text and annotate text digitally, have it read back to the user, and also save the text to Google Drive. Mrs. Nemecek did a great job of walking students through the process and set them up with a helpful tool.
