Young students learned traditional farming concepts, but used 21st century technology to enhance learning. They started a compost, recycled water with a rain barrel, and created a garden atmosphere in a small concrete area. Seeds were planted in raised beds and recycled planters and grown in a greenhouse. Students used various technologies to document their work including: a digital camera to video and capture pictures of unseen variables; iPads to research nutritional values; recipes for plants grown; and QR codes to show life cycles and nutritional values of plants. Keynote and iMovie will be used to publish and share their work.
