'Technology in the Garden: Using Mobile Devices to Record and Share Your Ag Experiences '

Bring your device and learn to teach your students to share their agriculture experiences using their camera and the apps: PicCollage, Book Creator, and Animoto. Students engage in higher order thinking as they create pictures and videos that demonstrate understanding of curriculum and tell their garden stories.Our youngest students make shape and color collages. Our second graders show off their knowledge of plant parts and practice writing while creating videos. Our older students write books they share with the younger children. By mastering these simple, free apps, the opportunities to incorporate the garden into the curriculum are endless.
