I was super impressed by the amazing work students at St. Richard’s were doing in relation to art, photography, poetry, language, and digital media, and how they incorporated it all into a virtual art gallery.
Within this virtual space, students, staff, family, and friends can admire the work these awesome students produced by freely walking around this virtual space and interacting with each piece displayed on the wall.
By clicking the art pieces on the wall, viewers are able to get more info about each piece displayed, as well as listen to poetry written and recited by the students about their art pieces.
- Virtual walk-through yearbook for your graduating class where students, staff, parents, family can enjoy as part of a graduation ceremony
- Displaying school wide student work and have each grade have it’s own room for other students and the community to see as part of a virtual curriculum night
- High school open house. Subject areas, clubs, sports can have their own room to showcase what your school has to offer.
- Ideas are endless…
For more information about this project and other applications that can be done within these custom made virtual spaces, contact Sean Mauricette at info@SeanMauricette.com.
The students I work with amaze me every day. One day, I asked CSLIT leaders Elisa and Junette, “How do you come up with such amazing looking slideshows?” Their answer was SlidesGo.
Now rather than being handcuffed by the limited templates Google slides or PowerPoint have to offer, you have access to a ton of new themes to choose from for FREE!
I will thank Elisa and Junette in advance for you! Enjoy the possibilities!!
CULTURALLY RELEVANT PEDAGOGY
CSLIT, our Catholic Student Leadership Impact Team, have been doing some great work and producing some awesome online content. If you missed Hear Me Out, it is a must watch for your own professional development.
Members of our Catholic Youth Black Alliance conducted a panel discussion with successful TCDSB professionals about what cultural barriers they faced growing up, and how they overcame these systemic hurdles to become the success people they are today.
Even though I’m a person of colour, I’m coming to a much greater understanding that every culture definitely has its unique struggles. This powerful and courageous discussion really opened my eyes to some of the inequities faced by our African Canadian brothers and sisters. A must watch for all educators.
