Product Description
It's Alive! Edgar Allan Poe Thinglink Technology Project - Use with Any of Poe's Short Stories or Poems!

In this teaching packet, you will be provided with all the resources that you need to offer an alternative assessment to your students using a great motivating tool – technology!

Students will love to showcase their knowledge of one of Poe’s short stories by creating a dynamic, interactive image that includes tagged sound files, songs, images, videos, and hyperlinks to related websites.

This project is designed to be used with ANY of Edgar Allan Poe’s short stories!
Each resource and tool that students will use to create their interactive images is free and accessible from any device with online access!

Students can use these materials with a MAC, Windows PC, Chromebook, iPad, or from any Smartphone! All materials are also editable. Teachers will be able to make changes if needed!

After reading a short story by Poe, students will first create a photo collage of related images. Several free collage-maker websites are linked to the Thinglink Project Handout.

After creating their collages, students will search for related online content to include as an embedded “tag” in Thinglink (a user-friendly, highly-rated free educational tech tool and website).

By searching for video files, audio, songs, and images, students will be given the opportunity to analyze and select more than one source type to represent their knowledge and analysis of one of Poe’s short stories.

Links to online digital sound effects and free music sites are included – along with directions on how to embed them into their Thinglink collage!

Students will love the opportunity to create and design their own interactive image!
