Class 15: Finishing Up – Design Lab II

This week we will finalize our lessons for inclusion into our collaborative iBook. You will also have some class time to transfer your contribution to our Holocaust Memorial Project into your final blog post. It could include the material you created or your reaction to the PBL approach. Don’t forget to add a link to the Memorial project site so visitor can be directed to the site

Here’s a good example of combining the content with a brief explanation of your intent.  It even includes a nice header image. Remember this is your digital portfolio!

Please note if you used an HTML snippet to embed content in the Memorial project site, you will need to create another HTML snippet at edmethods.
