So, this is a "plan" of what could happen.
After students conduct research, students will produce a multimedia presentation using available technology.
When do I plan on implementing lesson?
I suppose the best time to implement would be during the unit where this objective falls under. In this case it's research and expository, but if I'm working with another school or class there will need to be some discussion on what could be done.
What tool(s) do you plan to use?
I could use Googledocs, Animoto, Skype etc. It should be a program that can be used across the world.
Description of plan:
Students in both classes can team up with one subject to research. They will get together to research that topic. Then, they will make a presentation together. They can assign each other parts to complete and keep in contact via Skype, email, or blogs. Of course, if it is with a country around the world real time connecting may not be possible, unless the students really want to stay up in the middle of the night.
This is just an idea. I was also thinking we could create a gallery of poetry...or talk about issues that are going on in America and in other parts of the world. We could see how similar teen "issues" are between the two classrooms.
