I teach 8th grade students who love to learn via project based assignments. I like to give them real life examples of how Social Studies impacts their daily life. My students are very interested in current events and learning how history has cycled its way back around. They are looking forward to not accepting what they are always told and questioning everything and making a change in the world. My students also love to collaborate with their peers and this would allow them to do that via recording themselves.
I like to have a variety of ways for my students to showcase what they have learned. We love using Flipgrid and other apps similar where we can verbally assess what they know. My team and I will use these to allow our students a space to record their videos.
I will also use these tents to allow for collaboration after recording.
Students can use the tents to record and answer back videos that their peers are submitting. Right now my students are forced to find a small area in the building to try and record in peace and it is very difficult. I will also use these tents to provide a safe space to do that.
