ACTION

in the first week of June, 2008 students at Qatar Academy created 30 minute lessons delivered to Grade 4 or 5 level based on their topic.
The lesson used resources found on the international collaborative group wiki page.
The students, in their QA teams:
  • Produced a presentation and handout material (eg VoiceThread, PPT, video, online resources)
  • Delivered the lesson to a class at Qatar Academy
  • Uploaded all material to the QA team topic wiki page in a format that others can use
We have also created a blog which is designed to reach out to school communities and educate them about the guidelines and rules of online digital citizenship. This is done through the use of real-life stories and experiences that are used to have a greater impact on the online community.
Blog: Digiteen Stories - Please feel free to add your comments and experiences on the blog.
