Part of the Effective Technology Integration tips category!
In a few weeks, school starts again. This is the best time to begin connecting with students and getting them to connect with their peers. Try something new this year! Get students to talk about themselves by presenting selfies they have taken as part of a mission you have sent them on. First, get students to watch the video, Around the World in 360° Degrees, and reflect on it. Then show students the first slideshow below with selfie missions to get them meeting other students, exploring their surroundings, and reflecting on their learning goals. Feel free to use my missions or if you have time create your own presentation and introduce yourself to your students.
The second slideshow is an adaptable PowerPoint template that you may download and have your students use to upload their selfies. Another option is to upload this template to Google Slides. This template has preset slide timings of 20 seconds. The idea is to get students to share their completed selfie missions as a Pecha Kucha (6 minute, 40 second presentation) or Ignite presentation (5 minute presentation). You can have them present to the class or in small groups. I have listed the missions below, but feel free to give them any mission you want.
