Technology Tuesday: Discovery Streaming Board Builder

My apologies for being away so long.  I am going to get back on track.  Today I am going to tell you about a guided inquiry project one of my 5th grade teachers and I collaborated on.  We were addressing the science strand: predict the effects of changes in ecosystems caused by living organisms, including humans, such as the overpopulation of grazers or the building of highways. This was a 2 week project with our final product being a Board Builder from Discovery Streaming (which our district subscribes to).  

Board Builder is a tool students (or teachers) can use to display information in a poster style format.  But the cool thing about it is that you can import video clips and pictures or you can find some within Discovery Streaming and save them to use in your board.  Text can also be added.  Here are two examples of boards our students did. 

If you have access to Discovery Streaming I would highly recommend you check out Board Builder.  Let me know what you think about it!
