The final challenge of this project is to create a magazine programme. But before that, you need to surf different websites and overcome several missions that will help you gain knowledge and acquire strategies.
Collaborative work is highlighted in this project, which means you will mainly acquire knowledge by working in pairs or small groups. Likewise, you will also work individually on interactive activities to which you will access by clicking on the website links provided.
Do not forget that your teacher can help you whenever necessary on your way towards the big final challenge.
The missions you will have done at the end of this project are:
- a TV guide containing a great variety of programmes.
- a questionnaire to find out on your classmates' interests and likes on TV.
- a TV series dubbing.
- a visit around a TV studio explaining about several TV jobs.(Making of video).
- a news report.
- and, finally, the final challenge which consists of the design and production of your own magazine programme.
To create, design and edit your work, you will be able to use the following apps, among others.
- Cacoo, an online tool with which you will create word maps to work on key vocabulary.
- Canva, which will enable you to design and create your own charts.
- StoryboardThat. You will use this online app to prepare the drafts for your presentations.
