The aim of the project is to publish a school magazine on-line including articles in English. This project will encourage language learning and intercultural dialogue in order to know cultural differences and similarities in European countries. Students should learn how to write collaboratively, with both their classmates and partners abroad, and publish articles on-line. Another important objective is the meaningful use of ICT and the growth of our pupils? critical thinking. We also want to educate students to understand and watch the media, including the Internet, in a critical way.
Work process:
Getting started: Teachers?tasks: - Agree on the involved students? age and level of foreign language knowledge; - Try to link both the topics, sections and the type of articles to the English language curricula in the participating countries; - Agree on time lines and on ICT tools used in the project; - Suggest activities and exercises, which will enable their students to write articles in English. - Decide on the ways of students? collaboration: students write the article within their own school and, once published on-line, they share and discuss it with partners abroad; they work on the article with their partners abroad since the beginning; - Learn to use the publishing tools like the Twinspace or the Magazine Factory available at and other ICT (Google Drive applications) tools needed for the project (word processing, email, digital camera and Internet); - Plan the guidelines and hands-on activities on the use of e-journal software for the students; explain the way of working and the purpose of the project to the students. It is crucial to involve them as much as possible. Students? tasks: - Get familiar with the ICT tools needed for the project; - Get organized for information collection and collaborative writing process. They either work with their classmates or their partners from abroad. With the help of their teacher, they decide on who will be responsible for which task (information collection, writing the draft, taking pictures, handling ICT tools, proof-reading, etc.) - Decide on the sections of their e-journal and agree on them with their classmates/partners. - Choose relevant topics for their articles and agree on them with their classmates/partners. - Choose the journalistic approach according to the topic and their capacities (interview, news, reportage, photo-reportage, advertisement, survey, essay, review, announcement, ?); - Learn language skills needed for their task: via reading and working on similar types of articles written by professional journalists, studying the vocabulary related to the topic, etc. 2. Collecting and sorting the information: - Students find, select and organize material on the chosen topic (via Internet and/or library); - They brainstorm their ideas and prepare drafts of the article, respecting the journalistic approach they have chosen; - They decide on the layout of the article and on the pictures, which will illustrate the ideas expressed in the text; - Teachers monitor pupils? work, guide them through the process and help them cope with challenges of collaborative writing in a foreign language. 3. Publishing articles: - When writing the final version of the article, pupils take into account the comments made by the other members of the team concerning the quality of the language, content, layout and pictures; - They quote the sources of information provided in the article properly; - Students insert their activities and discussions in the forum in the Twinspace and in Magazine Factory environment; - Finally, teachers as administrators make their articles public; 4. Learning with and from each other: Students read their partners? or other teams? articles; - They exchange comments and. They consider the quality of the language, content, layout and the relevance of the pictures; - The articles are put together into an on-line e-magazine. They decide and agree on e-magazine design (logo, front page). They organize available articles according to the sections they agreed on at the beginning; - They try to find common features and differences in the perception of the chosen topic in their countries.
Expected results:
Articles in a foreign language published on-line; E-magazine, with an organized structure and containing articles written by all teams involved.
