Today’s Task

Today

Blogging:

Create an Impressum. Why? For legal reasons. You may – of course – ask for help. There are online platforms helping you. One is here, for instance. You also may have a look at this. Please also mention the name of our school (which I will tell you in class) and your teacher’s name (you should know it by now). Integrate the Impressum as a new page into your blog until Monday.

Flipping:

It’s time to record the video and/or cut it.

 

Creating great videos

Here is a very interesting book that tells you how to create great videos. Originally, it was written for teachers but it might help you if you have not finished your storyboards or worked out your ideas completely.

I also recommend this website about creating videos!

Finally, if you haven’t got an idea yet, check out PowToon. You can create videos like this (be patient, loading might take a while):

Enjoy and steal all the great ideas!

By the way: Which sources have you found? Tell me all about it and write a comment!

Feedback and Storyboard

Today it is your job to tell us about your project and about what kind of video you are going to produce. Keep in mind that there are restrictions concerning the use of pictures, data and film.

You will also start working on your storyboard. Hopefully you have found all the relevant information on your grammar task until now.

Finally, please make sure to create a vocabulary list about all the technical/film vocabulary that comes your way. Put it in your own list. We want to share it later.

If you have questions: It’s a flipped classroom! I’m there.

Etherpad – a medium to collaborate…

Sometimes we recognize that we would like to work in a team while the members of the team live miles apart from each other. Therefore, it is not really easy to meet.

Here’s a solution, even if you do not want to use Google docs or create an account anywhere: Open an etherpad! An etherpad is an online document which can be edited simultaneously by everyone of your team, from anywhere and on any device.

Create one here!

After having created the etherpad, just copy the newly created link from your browser and share it with your mates. There you go!

Why not write a blog?

Dear students,

as we have talked about writing a blog as a substitute for an exam, here’s the (optional!) deal: You write a blog. Every week you need one new blog entry. You will receive a grade not only for writing but part of your grade will be based on how correct you behave on the Internet.

Task

Look forward to open your WordPress blog but first watch this video and let your parents sign the “Elterninformation”!

Create your own WordPress blog (and use the “nickname” you also use for our Quizlet vocabulary as your name and also as the name of the blog!) until February 16, 2017. Go to this website to create it. (Your WordPress blog can then be reached via http://”nickname”.wordpress.com and you can manage it via http://”nickname”.wordpress.com/wp-admin/ .)

Finally, go to Moodle to GF16en2 using the password I told you in class and state the name of your new wordpress blog. If you haven’t got a moodle-account yet, apply for it here.

If you have questions opening your WordPress account, feel free to ask the questions in moodle. Please also answer questions your classmates have. Maybe you can help them.

Attention: DO NOT START PUBLISHING YET!
