This week our explorers were introduced to several programs on their computers that can be used to create a visual journal: iMovie (movies), GarageBand (podcasts), Keynote (slide shows), iBook (booklets), and Storyboard That (comic books).  They viewed several examples created on each program and got to practice the ones that interest them.  By the end of the week, explorers chose which program they will use for their journal and started to search for pictures of themselves participating in this week’s activities to be included in their work.  We have a wonderful group of very creative students, so I’m looking forward to seeing what they can come up with.
