Building a Multimedia Kiosk with PowerPoint

Janet Benecke

Session Outline

In this Year 7 integrated English/History project, students working in groups planned and produced a Virtual Exhibition on an area of interest from ancient Egyptian history. Whilst working towards outcomes in English and History, they engaged in a process that combined many of the 21st century learning skills likely to be critical to success in the future: thinking creatively, communicating clearly, analysing systematically, collaborating effectively, designing consistently, and learning continuously, while at the same time developing their fluency with digital technology: both interacting and creating with the computer.
