Using image decks to metaphorically express understanding
Teacher collects and downloads images in various categories, for example: animals. household items, apparel, school supplies etc. (Photos for Class provides Flickr Creative Commons images with embedded citation information at the the bottom of the downloaded image). Next, she uploads images into Google Slides, creating a separate slide deck (presentation) for each category, and shares the created decks with students via Google Classroom.
- Students create their own decks, determining a category and finding and uploading images.
- Split class into four groups and create a competition. Teacher projects first slide of created deck and first group has three minutes to construct and verbally present their meta association. Teacher projects next slide, next group goes and so on.
- Students upload images to video editing site, add audio and make meta-videos.
