Pages Book to Keynote Animation - Women’s History Month
I created a sampler postcard book for Women’s History Month. The purpose of the book was to give educators a guide as they created lessons centered around women’s history using Library of Congress primary sources. The book, titled Reminders from the Ceiling Breakers, is in the Apple Book store and includes some “how to” instructions.
I’m sending out those postcards - one a day! This was easily accomplished by copying each page from Pages and pasting onto a Keynote slide. Next I exported the front and back of the card as an animated gif and I’m posting them as a “spark” idea for teachers who might want to create a Challenge Based Learning lesson. These postcards are examples for teachers during online professional learning sessions and network sharing.
My challenge is, how might I use Challenge Based Learning in professional educational venues to engage teachers in using digital tools to create history content lesson? With the postcards, this might be the direction:
Big Idea: Woman’s History
Essential Question: How can we amplify the role of young women in changing the educational opportunities in schools?
Challenge: Engage learners in the study of women’s contributions and cultural challenges throughout history.
Check back here for some daily postcards during Women’s History Month to hopefully inspire some Women’s History Month CBL! Also please add your own ideas for wrapping content based history lessons with CBL.
