#30Goals : Share EdTech Success Story



   
When I saw Sylvia's Goal, this video clip came to my mind!  And here is its story:
I have to say that I have always been computer illiterate compared to my students!
Some years ago, back in 2012, working on a joined project, my student Konstantina took a wonderful initiative.
We were working on a song "I don't want to miss a thing"  with a lot of creative activities (which were presented at TESOL conventions in Greece)

So the idea was:

  •  Listen to the song
  •  Try to understand the meaning and picture what is happening
  •  Collect key words
  •  Find definition of the key words
  •  Find pictures that have to do with the meaning of the words (abstract or concrete)
  •  Make a video (Windows movie maker or Animoto or Slideshare)

This kind of activity can be done by one student ore a group of students - you can also have a competition among your classes or your groups and also involve parents (make a video clip day)
