During Term 2 and 3, all students from 1st to 5th grade worked in class with their French and English teachers on projects.
During term 3 and 4, the students used computers / Chromebooks to create a digital version of their work.
Here is the summary of the different projects per period per class:
Glogster is a cloud-based platform for presentation and interactive learning. It allows students to mix all kinds of media (images, audio, video, text, objects, links) on a virtual canvas to create multimedia posters.
Wixie is an online publishing and creativity platform. It’s a story telling software that allows students to create a story by writing a story on multiple pages, insert pictures, drawings. The digital book can become an audio book as well due to the audio recording function.
Sway is an interactive presentation software. The Sway interface is based around a storyline, into which users add a series of cards. These cards are then filled with content, with different cards available for different types of content, and which can be grouped together into sections. Content intended to be the user's narrative can be easily added, removed, edited or reordered.
