Challenge: Raise awareness and support for LGBTQ history in our school.

During Pride Month in the U.S. and beyond, use Challenge Based Learning to celebrate inclusion of LGBTQ rights and history in the educational curriculum.

Spark your Challenge with a Keynote Kiosk on iPad that is accessible in your classroom or place of instruction. It’s easy to set up Keynote on iPad into Kiosk mode:

Open Keynote, tap the drop down arrow at the end of the project name in the upper left, then select Presentation Options/Presentation Type.  Select Loop Slideshow and Self Playing.

Once you’ve shown students how to, they can make commemoration month kiosks to play in your classroom.
