Mercy Ninth Graders Use Google Apps to "Pick a Pope"

A Mercy religious studies teacher's ninth grade Intro to Theology classes have used Google Apps for Education to create an information site and school-wide ballot to "pick a pope".

In addition to a photo and text information, the girls have used their school YouTube accounts to create a clever "commercial" endorsing each candidate. These are completely respectful but fun!  Finally, Mr. Gerardi used Google Forms to create a simple ballot and linked it to the site for easy tabulation of the votes.

What a great use of our Google Apps for Education!  Mr. Gerardi has taken a subject that could be ever-so-remote to our girls and turned it into a memorable learning experience.
