Learn how technology was used to create an interactive E-book for students to use on the Freedom Trail during a field Trip to Boston. Students were first asked to research a specific Freedom Trail landmark in groups, taking note of historical significance, interesting facts, and pictures that would highlight important features of the Freedom Trail location. The information was collected and organized in a Google Doc for ease of collaboration with group members. Within this document was also a script that students recorded themselves reading aloud. A student was then elevated to the position of "editor" and was responsible for creating a page in the Boston E-Book, combining the different elements that were previously separate to create a unified page. The students then took school iPads to Boston and was able to learn while on the trail from their classmates, who had become "masters" of their Freedom Trail stop. This ultimately led to student engagement not only for their specific location, but also to learn from their classmates versus a tour guide, or teacher lecturing them while on the trail. Student comprehension and understanding was assessed on-site through use of a paper copy of a quiz that each group made up.
