Assessment rubric

Hello readers!!!

This task consists of creating our own rubric to assess CLIL e-projects.
I decided to use Quick Rubric tool because my classmates told me that they had a very good experience with it so I tried. The result was fantastic!! I like it very much. I thing is a very useful and quick tool(as the own name says). At the time you reate a rubric you have to bear in mind which aspects are relevant and significant in order to assess the final Project. This kind of rubric will facilitate teachers the way in which they evaluate.

I decided to include the following 7 aspects:

1. Organization
2.Use of language
3. Quality of content and coherence
4. Creativity
5. Web URLS and accessibility
6. Spelling and grammar
7. Dissemination

The points will be divided in three sections: Proficient (3 points), Emerging (2 points) and Revise your work (1 point).

From my point of view, I think this task has been very useful for me because, I didn`t know how to make rubrics and I have learnt and from now on I will be able to use it in my classroom. Also, it will help students to understand better their marks and they are not going to complain anymore about their unfair grades. With this kind of rubrics, students are going to know exactly what they have wrong and what aspects they have good and why.

Augmentative reality. Aurasma app

Good afternoon everybody!!

This assignment was the last one that we did in groups. It consisted of creating a collaborative slideshow about how to use Aurasma app through a tutorial. This tutorial will support students to learn about Aurasma. We have decided to do a tutorial about Aurasma because students have worked previously with this app in the last assignment about infographics.  

We have decided to divide the tasks in our group. Two of us wrote the dialogue that we are going to record in the tutorial and the rest of the team searched about how to use the tutorial called  Screencast-o-matic. It is an online tool that you have to downloaded. Once you have downloaded it, you can start working on it. It is a very easy and useful tool. We had to record it twice because in the first time the sentences we not well-coordinated with the actions of the computer mouse. If you want to see our final result go down. 

We participated again in a collaborative project that is called A por TICS . It consists of creating tutorials from different students about different topics .As we did it with all the previous tasks we have already send our task to the collaborative project but this time we are waiting for the answer and to get our award. 

I would like to finish with an idea for teachers. As teachers it is important to know how to create tutorials and how to use Aurasma app in order to teach their students this fantastic tool and how they can use it to create better and fun projects.

Thank you all for your time spent reading this new post. 

Video challenge

Hello everybody!!

For  this mission we continued working by the same groups.
My groupmates are : Mara Dominguez, Neus Fiol, Marta Gayarre and Álvaro Gómez. 
This assignment consisted of creating a draft that explains what is the video about. We decided to use with Google Docs. If you want to see our draft click here

Once we create our Storyboard we started working on our video. We recorded this video in Moncloa neighbourhood. We had to record it twice because of the wind sound. 
We have used a tool called IMovie. I have used this tool before and I think it is fantastic. It is an amazing and useful tool to edit videos. If you want to see the final result you can do it here: 

To conclude this post I would like to say that this fantastic project is going to be part of the collaborative project called The ESL Times
It is a great project where students share their knowledge through different types of activities in English. We send our storyboard and video, as we did it with our infoedugraphic project, to their mail and theu gave us another award: 

A Live CLIL Chocotalk

Do you know your neighbourhood? CLIL E-PROJECT

Good afternoon everybody!!!

My ICT lessons now are going to be organised by groups. My group is called: Do you know your neighbourhood? 

My classmates @Alvaro_Gope @marta_Gayarre @maradominguezgo @nepeuspu are in my team. 

Our first assignment was to create an infographic with a speific objective for our CLIL e-prject called  Do you know your neighbourhood? 

Our main goal is that students know better their surroundings through different online and life activities. In the group we have assigned the following roles: 

Supervisor: @marta_Gayarre
Coordinator: @Alvaro_Gope
Speaker: @nepeuspu
Secretaries: @maradominguezgo @22paau

Our objective to design the infographic was to give a clue about the topic but you need to use Aurasma app in order to discover more about how it works. That is why we created a video to explain briefly the contents that children are going to work on. 
We have decided to use Canva because it was the tool that has more resources to create this type of infographic. 
Here is our infographic that is connected with Aurasma if you click on the QR code.

Here is the twitter link if you want to see it!!!

If you are interested in our topic and you know to learn more about it you can see my classmates' blogs: 

Finally I would like to finish this post saying that we had the opportunity to participate in a national project. We sent our infographics to Proyecto InfoEdugrafías and they have published our info graphic in his blog and they also gave us this award:
