Building bridges for the future through collaborative projects
Hello Global Educators,
Here is an update from our most recent meeting. As always, please reach out in the google group with any questions or concerns.
While students continue to add their research to the wiki, we encourage teachers and students to start thinking about the creation phase of the project. All students have the opportunity to create a video to represent their learning of the topic they have been researching.
The following links will be helpful in learning about the video creation process and can be found on the FCGP 17-2 wiki.
One of the critical pieces of the video is the outsource piece. As students begin to create storyboards for their videos, they should consider an outsource request that would be suitable for the video and manageable for their global partners. All video outsource requests should be posted on the individual topic pages on the wiki. Screen shots with directions can be found in our meeting presentation.
Please consider the following presentation as a guide for students as they begin brainstorming video ideas.
Finally, please consider our timeline for the remainder of the project:
Classroom and student handshake: September 21 - October 1
Collaborative editing: October
Video pitches and creation: October - November
Video outsourced requests due: November 15
Video outsourced requests completed and uploaded: November 21
FCGP videos due: December 1
Student Summits: December
Video Judging Phase 1: December 1-8
Video Judging Phase 2 (meta-judging): December
Thanks for all of your work! Please keep the lines of communication open and ask for help when needed.
