Information about climate change and students positive attitudes to sustainable development. Personal means how to prevent climate change and/or slow it down.
Implemented digital tools:
We need digital devices with internet connection for exampe iPads. We are going to use the app Padlet, the website https://yourplanyourplanet.sustainability.google/ and more apps which students choose to use in the project. We are also going to use google docs or slides for our collaboration between students and the teachers.
Supported digital competence for student:
Information and data literacy, Communication and collaboration, Digital content creation, Problem solving
Elaboration of the competences:
Students are reading and discussing about the resources. Communication and collaboration in classroom in pairs or a small group and digitally locally and maybe internationally in chosen apps from techers. Students create digital content via iPads by using clips or camera. Problem solving is done by thinking what consequence climate change and its prevention is going to have in future and in students own life.
Devices available with internet connection, for example iPads. Teacher has to get familiar to the apps and the resources. Apps and accounts to students.
Brainstorming with Padlet app 1. What is climate change? 2. What can you personally do to prevent or to slow it down? Discussion in classroom about the outcomes of these brainstorms. Why the climate change is a serious problem?
Students study the website https://yourplanyourplanet.sustainability.google/ Maybe english translator is needed. Task for the students: Produce an idea of your own how to prevent or slow down climate change. Present the idea by using clips or another app you choose. Share it in shared slides presentation which teacher has already made.
The students show their products. Positive feedback for the student from others students and the teachers. If there is something incorrect the teachers discuss it with the students. Teachers and the groups can also give each other a comment in the slides.
