Project Hello,There!
What's Bernardo doing?
Instructions:
Bring a stuffed animal to class. Reinforce the idea that their commitment and engagement will be essential to the successful completion of the task and that you believe they will be able to carry it out responsibly. Then, explain that each day a student will be chosen to take the stuffed animal home and take some pictures of him/her doing different things (ex: sleeping, watching tv, doing karate, having dinner, playing video games, etc...). Remind them that there is no limit to their creativity and that they are going to choose how they want their pictures to look like. Then, explain that their parents should send the pictures to the teacher`s e-mail address and that they will be used in a class activity after everyone has completed the task. Then, after you have collected all the pictures, show them to students and elicit sentences in the Present Continuous ("What is Bernardo doing?"). This can be done orally or you can ask them to write the sentences in their notebooks.
Adaptation
Students will take photos of the class mascot stuffed animal performing everyday activities using their mobile devices. Photos will be shared with all students through the class Whatsapp group (or emailed to the teacher). Teacher will collect all the pictures and put them in order according with the help of the students to create the mascot's daily routine Powerpoint presentation. Students talk about his daily routine orally and with the aid of the ppt write about the mascot's day for homework.

Overview Presentation


Main Adaptations


- We have decided to try the project with fewer students (only students who are really willing to collaborate).

- As Brazil is playing against Croatia in the first World Cup match, we have included the topic football.

- Our platform will be a Google+ community as we are in love with the way posts can be shared and grouped.

-Students will create a Prezi rather than writing a report.
Tips for Tourists
Instructions:
Divide students into small groups and explain that they should make a "gami" (that is how a short story is called in Tellagami) giving advice to tourists visiting their hometown or any other city in their country (if students come from different countries, this is a great opportunity to learn about different cultures). Show them a sample and go over the main features in the app. Remind them that they can choose the city and what background image they are going to use. Ask them to write down their text before they record it (there is the option of typing in the text and using one of the native-like voices that come in the app- in this case, students would`t record their own voice). As a follow-up, students can watch each other`s stories, discuss the pieces of advice given and even vote for the nicest "gami".
My teaching situation
I teach EFL to Young Learners and Teens at a language school in Brazil. Students come to class twice a week for 1h30min.
Most students own a smartphone with 3G internet or a tablet. The school also has ipads and iphones which can be used in mLearning lessons. School wi-fi is available.
For this task, you will choose 3 lessons or activities that you could adapt and use for your classes. You will create a multimedia presentation that includes:
*screenshots of the 3 lessons or activities mentioned;
*a brief description of your teaching situation (subject, learner description, Internet access, and the type of devices your students will use);
*an explanation of how you would use these ideas and adapt them to your teaching situation;
*your rationale for choosing these activities.

PROJECT HELLO, THERE! DESCRIPTION
:
18 students from Brazil will be paired up with 18 students from Argentina to communicate during 4 weeks.

Objective:
to learn as much as they can about the other student and the place where he/she lives during this period of time. At the end of the 4 weeks, each student will write a report to the teacher expressing what they have learned.

Platform
: students from both countries will join an Edmodo group. Both teachers, from Brazil and Argentina, will be the managers of the group. Students will be divided in small groups (pairs) where they can develop a conversation. Their communication can be via text, audio files, videos, photos using any kind of file they wish to attach to their messages. Teachers will have access to their communication the whole time.

Teachers' role
: to get students in contact, divide them into pairs and manage their conversation. Students' messages don't need to be corrected by the teacher beforehand as the objective is not accuracy but the development of a conversation. However, the teacher can prepare activities to be carried out in class with some common mistakes observed (without identifying students).

Final Task
: by the end of 4 weeks, each student should publish a report to their teacher, explaining how the communication took place and what he/she learned about the other student. The final report should contain at least 200 words and images/ videos to illustrate it.

The reports will be posted on a common wiki: http://projecthellothere.pbworks.com/ which will then be shared with parents.

Adaptation:

10 students from Brazil will be paired up with students from Croatia to communicate during 4 weeks.

Objective:
to learn as much as they can about the other student, the place where he/she lives and football in his/her country during 4 weeks. Each student will then create a multimedia presentation on Prezi to show what they have learned.

Platform
: students from both countries will join a Google+ community. Both teachers, from Brazil and Croatia, will be the managers of the community. Students will be divided into pairs and have their separate "page" to develop a conversation via text, audio files, videos, photos using any kind of file they wish to attach to their messages. Teachers will have access to their communication the whole time.

Teachers' role
: to get students in contact, divide them into pairs and manage their conversation. Students' messages don't need to be corrected by the teacher beforehand as the objective is not accuracy but the development of a conversation. However, the teacher can prepare activities to be carried out in class with some common mistakes observed (without identifying students).

Final Task
: by the end of 4 weeks, each student should create a Prezi presentation to their teacher, explaining how the communication took place and what he/she learned about the other student. The Prezi should contain at least 200 words and images/ videos to illustrate it.

The Prezis will be embedded on a common wiki:

which will then be shared with parents.

No adaptation needed
When teaching my pre-intermediate teenagers to give advice using "should" I am going to do this activity exactly as suggested by Vinicius Lemos above. However, I won't give them the option of typing in the text and use the text-to-speech function of Telagami and let the character say their text as I think it's really nice to have the opportunity to go back and check your (or your children's) production after a couple of years.
The 3 activities chosen were designed by Brazilian colleagues Ana Maria Menezes (http://lifefeast.blogspot.com) and Vinicius Lemos (http://mthatlearning.blogspot.com) who have the same teaching background as me. The activities are simple, feasible, don't require much preparation or class time, yet enjoyable. I've chosen them for these reasons. I'm sure my students will not only practice the target language, but also have a lot of fun.
