Getting to know our librarypals...virtually
The third graders spent the week before the break getting to know their LibraryPals in Minnesota a little bit better.
The students drew a picture that captured their interests.They video taped each other sharing a special book and a bit about their hobbies. We used the app Aurasma to create a overlay of the videos on the images. We stored the students videos on a private channel so only our two schools can see each other's work. When they scan the images, the video appears.
We have connected in many ways over the last two years, but this project gave more ownership and independence to the students.
