This Halloween, students are encouraged to create a recording of themselves as a Halloween character. This thematic activity makes use of specifically selected apps, which allow each student an opportunity to develop his or her individual creativity and work collaboratively with their classmates to complete their project. The interactive MSQRD app has various options and menus for each student to choose from. When a mask has been selected, each student works with a partner to create a video recording of his or her own personalized Halloween script. Students then have to check the quality of the recording to ensure clarity and accuracy. Once the students are satisfied with the audio and video, they export and upload their projects to our synchronized cloud storage system.
This kind of project gives students an opportunity to apply their skills to edit, compile, and customize their own artistic presentation and extend their use of English in a real way thereby furthering our iWagor goal of using English to teach technology rather than using technology to teach English.
