Students learn new ways to present their work and collaborate with others.
Implemented digital tools:
Students need mobile devices ( iPads preferably). Internet connection needed while presenting the completed works. Internet connection not necessary while producing the content but still recommended in case students need to search for content on the Internet.
Supported digital competence for student:
Information and data literacy, Communication and collaboration, Digital content creation, Safety, Problem solving.
Elaboration of the competences:
Students need to search for information on the Internet when creating content which will train their data literacy skills. The slide show will be made in collaboration with fellow students and communication skills will thus be improved. The outcome of the slide show is digital content and shareable with others. Students need to consider safety in searching for information on the Internet (data literacy) and who to share their work with. Problem solving skills will be practised on multiple levels while using the tool.
Before this lesson students should have done some preparation for their topic at hand: mind mapping and taking notes and elaborating on the idea of how to present their work. The same topic will be given to a group of three students.
Students start working with their topics on their own with Google slides and share their work in progress with others in the group so that each member of the group can follow how the others are doing by sending their comments. Students communicate only via the tool on comment fields. The goal is to collaborate to make all 3 presentations as good as possible.
The group gets back into their classroom and shows their outcome to other groups. This can also take place on the following lesson or when all groups will have finished their work.
