Our peace poems

Tuesday, 24 September 2013

At the end of last term, we wrote a collaborative peace poem. We made this in our Google Docs accounts with each pair of students able to work on the same presentation at the same time. The class had a wide ranging discussion about what peace was. Rather than simply an absence of war, we decided that it was also things that helped to calm and relax you. We also spent quite a bit of time discussing how to find images online that we are allowed to reuse. There is a setting in the Advanced Google Image Search that allows you to search for images licensed for reuse. There is also a way of searching sites like Flickr for Creative Commons images that can also be reused. Here are the poems we created.

The peace poems were cool because the tastes, scents, we're pretty amazing and the kids work well on
Did they?
