Discovery Box is a fun tool in which students can create virtual, visual representations of people or events, as well as building a representation to support an argument. Discovery Box would also be a wonderful tool for students to create autobiographies. Discovery Box is a virtual box in which you choose the items you want to represent your subject. Discovery Box can be used to complete assignments in any content area.
Discovery Box allows you to upload and display text files, images, and videos. Students make their own choices on what items they would use to represent their subject.
In order for students to save their Discovery Box, they must register and create an account. If this is creates a problem for you, remember you have the option to Piggy-Back onto an existing email. This eliminates the need for each student to have an email account of their own.
Discovery Box is definitely a site worth checking out.
