This is my collaborative activity desing . Unit 4.
My dream this week is to get my students to collaborate with students from other countries using tools that allow them a permanent contact (at the same time or in different periods of the day).
My project is composed of four schools from different countries with students between 9 and 12 years old. This activity will take place over a month.
Four groups of 4 students will be formed in each class. One of them will be the spokesperson, responsible for the organization of the group.
In the activity will be formed an international class composed of a group from each country, in total 4 international classes composed of students from the four countries participating in the project.
Each international class will design a logo using canvas for it, flockdraw to make pictures or drawings in group or a tag using tagul (forming images with relevant words). All this will be shared in our twinspace in e-twinning.
The subject to be studied is a historical event in their countries in the last 50 years. For this, each student will interview their grandparents who tell them about the historically significant facts – in their opinion (e.g. the end of the dictatorship in Spain, the fall of the Berlin wall in Germany, the appearance of Solidarity in Poland or the Balkan war in Croatia).
These activities are programmed in a timeline using tiki-toki. Students can use it to upload news, videos etc. on the events so that their companions know them by commenting on the existing chat in e-twinning or using frampad an application where you can write collaboratively.
The next step is to create a presentation of the activity performed by each group using power point or prezzi under the supervision of the teachers. The last step is to create an electronic book (using issuu) with information about the four historical facts from each country.
In this process students can also use the existing video chat in e-twinning.
Finally, each of the groups in each class presents the work done with their partners from other countries to the rest of their class.
We could have only 4 historical facts or it is probable that the final product presents us with more information than the expected minimum.
This product will be published in school webpages or blogs created for the project and in twinspace in e-twinning .
Tools used: canvas, flockdraw, tagul, tiki-toki, frampad, power point, prezzi, issuu, e-twinning chat and videoconference.
