Best Education Case Study: Pat Johnson’s 1st and 2nd Grade Classroom

Pat Johnson’s 1st and 2nd graders (now in 2nd and 3rd grade) have used Haiku Deck to capture what they’ve learned about anacondas, showcase their artwork illustrating historical events, and explore fractions. They used the integrated Creative Commons image search to collect pictures and facts about hummingbirds and to explore the concept of big and little. When we released charts and graphs last spring, they created graphs illustrating how many views their class decks had received.

We love this case study both for the breadth of creative uses across content areas and because how it illustrates so beautifully that even very young students can successfully collaborate and create with the app.
