Mrs. Pazos' World Cultures Classes, recently diverted from making a flip book to creating graphic organizers using Popplet. Popplet is an online Web 2.0 tool that allows students to create a graphic organizer not only using words, but also using videos, images, and Google Maps. Students remain engaged while organizing their content. Students and teachers can also collaborate on a Popplet by inviting other Popplet users to work on their project.
Students had to explore Citizenship, Government, and Economy. They had to define, explain the rights and duties of citizens, give information on the three branches of government, and show how Market Economy, Traditional Economy, and Command Economy are different. Students were allowed to use images found from online by using the "free to use or share" setting in Google Images Advanced Search settings, and appropriate YouTube videos to complete their assignment. Here is an example of work that one of Ms. Pazos' students created using Popplet.
