Research projects

Research Projects

  • To write up fact-based research projects, students need to summarize clearly and concisely. Using tools designed for presentations requires them to reduce information into short, concise statements.  Take a look at some examples of written summaries enhanced with images by using presentation tools such as Prezi, PhotoPeach and Sliderocket to write about people, places and processes.

  •  People: Research an author, scientist, innovator, politician…someone who has made a difference.

  •   Example using Prezi:  Mary Anning

  • Places: Research a specific aspect of your city or region, or another place you want to learn more about.

  •   Example using PhotoPeach: The Architecture of Old Montreal 

  • Processes: Describe a process in 10-15 steps. The process could be related to a topic you are studying, a hobby or your field of interest.
