Here goes our first tool to exchange ideas and set up the basis of the project: Padlet. You just need to put down your ideas, like a virtual board where eneryone shares information. Click the link below
1st task. Padlet tool extract:
We are going to show you the "object" that we`re going to work on with our students
Don't forget that it's crucial also to connect this object with some objectives of our subject or with competencies to develop among the students
Consuegra's wind mills
The Town of
Consuegra is famous for its windmills.
A string of windmills stretches across the hill above the town, and that’s quite spectacular.
The windmills, the one called Sancho, is set in motion to
celebrate the harvest. Sancho still operates using its original 16th-century
machinery, in the symbolic event “The milling of peace”.
Consuegra is an agricultural community, with a
centuries-long history of growing wheat. That's why there are so many
windmills. The windmills are the original "green" machines. The ancient wooden wheels are turned by the wind moving the exterior sails. They, in turn, rotate the millstones that grind the grain into flour. It's a
centuries old design that still works today.
I've created a new object on padlet tool as well: Object 2:"Order of St. John's Castle"
Explore our gorgeous medieval castle and learn how it could keep the enemies outside with its curious defense systems
Now it's time to think about the "objects" you're going to work on. You could create a quiz, a comic, a video, etc, to name but a few, about this relevant item of your town you want to show to the rest of us
In our first coordination meeting, my students have grouped themselves in groups of four members and each group had appointed a leader in order to:
- to work as a link between the teacher and the rest of the group
- to encourage the use of new ICT tools among the rest of the team whenever it's needed
- coordinate the tasks timing
