Mr. Gerardi’s ninth grade Intro to Theology classes have used Google apps to create an information site and school-wide ballot to “pick a pope”.
The girls have researched top Cardinal candidates and posted the information to a Blogger web page.
In addition to a photo and text information, the girls have used their school YouTube accounts to create a clever “commercial” endorsing each candidate. These are completely respectful but fun! Finally, Mr. Gerardi used Google Forms to create a simple ballot and linked it to the site for easy tabulation of the votes.
What a great use of our Google Apps for Education! Mr. Gerardi has taken a subject that could be ever-so-remote to our girls and turned it into a memorable learning experience.
