Lasting Learning with Research & Apple Tools - Bringing Stories into the Light
I found Jew Yeung’s story the summer I was researching at the National Archives in Washington D.C. with an Apple Distinguished Educator colleague, Mia Morrison. We had the opportunity to be involved in an Apple Education program helping museums and archives get some of their records published in the Apple Book Store. The Archives holds many immigration records, Jew Yeung’s story is a small but humanizing part of understanding the historic Chinese Exclusion Act and the racism surrounding that long lasting set of laws in the United States.
When one works closely with primary sources, purposely intending to share that knowledge broader, that learning becomes meaningful and ongoing. The same can be said for involvement in creating a video documentary, publishing a poem or photograph and working on a piece of art. Giving students the opportunity to delve deep into a project and make it their own has long lasting effects. That deep dive can easily be a published book using Pages, a podcast created in GarageBand, a public or school wide presentation via Keynote, a recorded piece of music, a photograph displayed in a school gallery, etc.
As you think of creative ways students can dive into primary sources bringing that research to life…
