Technology Showcase

Multi- Genre Project

This project showcases several web 2.0 tools to demonstrate the literary text in multiple perspectives.   Voki was used to share the characters  development in the story.  Popplet, a digital graphic organizing tool, was used to map out the character’s ideas on her outdoor adventures.  To place myself into the development of the story, I participated in a rock climbing lesson, and edited the video to create an iMovie experience of my own adventure.  Throughout this project my understanding and application of web 2.0 tools is demonstrated.
