As your students create and complete real projects, it’s powerful for them to exhibit their work to others. Typically, these public exhibitions are in person at the school. But there are real advantages to virtual exhibitions: You can record and archive the exhibition for future use. You can make sure each student’s project is recognized. And you can include people who don’t live nearby, including mentors and relatives. Nothing quite like having a proud grandparent see the work of their grandchild!
- What impact did this experience have on your students? Your parent community? Others?

- Once you’ve gone virtual, what other creative enhancements can you make that aren’t possible with an in-person exhibition?
- Would you consider asking students to lead in creating and carrying out this Digital Exhibition?
