We, Pablo Almansa, Emily Lau and Nuria González, take part of a Master's degree about bilingual education. Together our classmates, we were asked by the teacher María Jesús García (@mjgsm) to tackle an e-Project in small groups at the beginning of February.
We were giving eight challenges about different topics about music and art, literacy, science, etc. and in groups of three-four people we have been working on it for three months.
On April the 27th, altogether, and thanks to our teacher (@mjgsm), we were given the opportunity of share our e-Projects with the world in the 7th Virtual Round Table Conference, and here you have some aspects we wanted to highlight:
HEAL THE WORLD WITH STORIES
They have been developing stories to entertain, to teach and to learn through them. The kinds of activities they have been doing are to encourage children in the teaching/learning process and they have done activities such as podcast or origami stories and they have dedicated a special place in their blog to provide kids with stories.
They have been working on the objective of combining English and Science through different challenges. The vast majority of these challenges are based on different ways of doing experiments in a funny and motivating way. As well, they consider they have learn not only how to teach but also a new way of teaching.
ARTS AND MUSIC IN JARS
Since the beginning of the e-Project, they wanted to make music accessible to students and help them develop their musical skills. With this in mind, they started creating videos and tutorials to improve their skills and to show them how to use some tools related to music. They have also created a webmix and a movie tráiler, among other sources, to show visually their e-Project.
ARTS AND MUSIC AROUND THE WORLD
This group use ICT to familiarize kids with art and music. They wanted to create an intercultural atmosphere creating online activities about how to dance tradicional dances from different countries such as China, Egypt, New Zeland, Brazil, etc.
They also participated in a radio interview in which they could explain their e-Project.
ENJOY LEARNING: MUSIC AND ART
This e-Project was created with the objective of celebrating two anniversaries: El Greco and Platero and I. To do that, they have used lots of different tools and apps such as comics and videos to get it. Through these kinds of activities they have tried to mix Juan Ramón Jiménez's poetry with El Greco's paintings.
The objective of this group was to give learners an active role in the teaching/learning process. To do that, they created different resources to encourage children to express themselves. They show them how to do an interview, how to create newspapers, how to be good journalists, etc.
In fact, their slogan is: building up, critical minds!
They have created a mobile e-library to keep stories for children. They have recorded lots of podcasts for children such as: Fat cat on a map, Miss Cloud, the prettiest one or Shark in the park, among others. They pretend their webpage to be a tool for teachers and students.
