We thoroughly enjoyed our experience with the My Hero learning circles. We began our experience by completing a survey in Google forms to tell information about ourselves. When we learned the location of the other classes in our circle, we used Google earth to look at each location. We responded to the discussion board in the iEarn circle about our thoughts about heroes.
In Mr. Allen's Social Studies class, we did research about our heroes and used audacity to create recordings about our heroes.
At the end of the project, we reviewed the projects created by the other classes around the world. We chose a hero from the completed projects page and responded to questions in a discussion board created by our technology facilitator, Joanna Brown.
We thoroughly enjoyed this. I would love to be able to keep in touch with the teachers in my group for future collaboration. We are doing a "We are the World" theme next year, and the library will be featuring Jordan and Israel.
