In these workshops, students created presentations that included a map of where they grew up, pictures of special places they remembered, and of their favorite foods. They learned how to apply a theme to their presentations that made it more colorful, added annimation to their pictures and text, and learned how to add slide transitions while they told us the story of their lives and family. They further added hyperlinks and YouTube music videos of their favorite music videos, and more.
Once they completed their Life Story project, they presented their stories to their classmates. Their stories were video taped and put on YouTube so students could share their stories with family and friends anywhere around the world.
