FC: Seasons | Sarah Derr
1: Welcome to my Mixbook technology curriculum project! The following pages are examples of work that students might create and publish following the directions of my Seasons lesson plan found at the end of this Mixbook. Technology is a powerful motivator for students They can create projects that are aesthetically pleasing and that can be published to share with other students, family, and friends. In addition to being viewed on the web, a Mixbook creation can be printed out as a hard copy book that can be housed in the classroom, presented to the school library, or purchased by parents and guardians as a keepsake of their student's work. -Sarah Derr
