I would like to share a project that we have been working on with two schools in the United States.
ICT Project-A Better World- Creating Global Connections through Global Issues
Our 6th grade students have teamed up with two other schools in the US to work on on a multimedia project which has focused their attention on global issues. This is a collaborative project during which students have: researched global issues, collaboratively written a group rap song (based on one issue) using Google Docs, performed Google Advanced searches for Creative Commons licensed media, “Blabberized” images so as to create speaking avatars, mixed musical loops and recorded their raps using GarageBand, edited and dubbed their videos in iMovie and uploaded their work, including a reflection to the project Wiki.
This was a great project which enabled students to learn many new skills, add a number of digital tools to their tool kits, enjoy each step in their learning and share their work with other schools as well as the end.
The students and teachers in the 3 different schools have worked very hard over the last few months on their parts of the project and we are very pleased with the results. The kids have learned a lot about global issues and learned many important ICT skills along the way.
If you are interested in becoming a part of this project at any point during this or next school year, do let me know.
