5th Grade Digging Deeper with Technology

In an effort to use technology in a more effective, impactful way, 5th graders in Mrs. Gourley's class explored another function of Google Docs. As a part of their learning about the human body systems, teams of students researched assigned questions. They used their notes and textbooks to locate answers, and had to provide their answers in writing on a shared Google Doc. As they found their answers, they had to support their findings to their teammates by citing evidence from the text before they were able to publish it to the Google Doc. Students were all working collaboratively on the same document, which was made available for viewing to all students in the class. The way students were able to all work on the same document and share their knowledge with each other in real-time was evidence how their use of technology redefined the way in which they learned!
