Globalisation assignments


Let's clarify our globalisation assignments here....


1. Homework - Personal, creative, high quality, "model" project [not necessarily a model, but something physical, and representative of your learning in globalisation]. Must be extremely high quality so you are proud of it and everyone else is amazed by your brilliance.

- due week middle of week 8


2. Paired Youtube documentary project - done collaboratively with your pair of M3 students.

Includes a story board and a record of your timetabled interactions with M3 - Using Small-World wiki, Edmodo microblogging, our other blogs, Skype, telephone, and email.


3. In class group projects such as developing a globalisation newspaper, magazine or website. Perhaps something creative projects like a drama, song, dance, musical piece, Marvin animation, etc.


4. To regularly interact with the class blog and to develop an e-portfolio of related resources and opinions on your own personal blogs.


5. You may use Glogster also, but it must be linked to the class blog and your personal blogs. It is my preference that you continue to use blogger to keep a record of your learning.


6. We will also be doing a letter writing campaign to try to convince politicians to put a stop to destructive palm oil plantations in places where orangutans should be living.

thank mr woody i needed to know that stuff. for the third assignment i was thinking about learning an indian dance, because it is creative and fun plus it relates to globalisation. india is so big and it impacts each and every one of us.

ps i have someone willing to teach me an indian dance too. :)

Mr.Woody, you need to give us looooots of time to do our projects seperately, even the time out. For example: for for the whole morning tea time we do our personal one and then half our lunch time we could do the you tube one and for the other half we could do the class group projects. When I mean lots of time, I mean a llllooooottt.

MrWoody said...

DreamH - you get the time, but you have to use it well and many of you don't.

TweedleDP - how lucky you can access Youtube at home - if it was at school we could analyse such things together and share our learning more effectively.
Audio Visual resources are the best.
