Elaboration of the competences:

Students learn communication and collaboration by working together.


First step is to get the Tontastic app, you find it in the App store/Play store. Toontastic is a creative storytelling app and therefore we are going to tell a story. In this case my students had already read a story and therefore they were going to tell parts of the story with their own words and getting experts in that event.


Students are divided in groups of two and assigned one event in the story. They will get 3×40 mintues to finish their task. They are supposed to retell the event with the app.


Students will have to chosse how many windows their story will be. Than they will also have to choose the scene. You can both create a scene or choose from the scenes that´s already there and in this case they will do so. Than they have to pick the characters in the story and there can you both create them or choose from many characters that you can change a little bit. And that will the students do. The students have to agree what is important in the event tha they were divided. Then they decide what the characters say and how they move across the scene.


At the end when the students have finished their story. They have to send the video to their teacher.
