Once again, Melanie Anderson at ISA has come up with a wonderful lesson using the iPads for her students. She asked the students to use any app of their choosing to illustrate their understanding of Camus’ philosophical essay, “The Myth of Sisyphus”, while connecting it to his novel, The Stranger.
Below you will see 4 examples of how students demonstrated that the existential philosophy addressed in the essay, through an allusion to Sisyphus, is illustrated in the text of the novel.
These first two examples are pages from two different examples using the app ScribblePress. Students created eBooks to illustrate their understanding.
This student used the app Puppet Pals to illustrate understanding.
This last example is created with Visual Poet.
I love the way Melanie allows the students to choose their own app to demonstrate their learning. Let’s all take a page from her book and allow students to choose their own way to demonstrate their learning.
