Some assessment activities (not just ICT) that can be included with almost any unit or project are:

  • A neat and well designed poster, or do it digitally with Glogster (see an example here how they embedded it into a wiki)
  • A well organised brochure
  • A story (a picture book, a comic - Google Chrome did it, a graphic novel, a chapter book, a work of fiction etc.) (even try incorporating your story into GoogleEarth!)
  • A letter to the editor or a newspaper article (Newspaper Clipping Generator)
  • An article for a magazine (Word, Pages etc)
  • A photo essay (with digital photos or ones drawn by hand - Skitch, iPhoto, ComicLife, PowerPoint/Keynote, iMovie, VoiceThread etc.)
  • A Word/Pages document that includes images, headers and body
  • A skit/role-play
  • A long poem
  • A video advertisement, radio commercial or tutorial video/resource (iMovie, Jing+other screencasts, GarageBand etc.) [Film and Video Lesson Ideas here]
  • A documentary (iMovie or equivalent)
  • An animation
  • A radio/podcast show (GarageBand, Gcast or equivalent)
  • Create a personal or class blog (Blogger, Edublogs, WordPress)
  • use Posterous to post photos and comments simply by emailing (Grade 4 example here)
  • Create a Wiki to store and share all research - see one grade 5 student example here
  • Create a class resource (poster, fact cards, instructional material, video tutorial, book, children's story etc.)
  • Use VoiceThread (a photo sharing/conferencing web application - view a student example here)
  • Animoto (create slick photo slideshows effortlessly - sign up for the educator's pass, it's free)
  • Create a collaborative timeline with xTimeline.
  • 25 Things to do with a Digital Image
  • Create a Flowgram (interactive guided presentations) project
  • Use Wordle to save key words from a brainstorm session. (This creates attractive tag clouds. Use a screen capture to save it.)







Use artwork or photos to generate ideas, critical and creative thinking.
