eTwinning

Matul din is-sena skolastika 2020/2021 l-iskola ta’ Kirkop ħadna sehem fil-proġett Issuġġerili Ktieb mal-klassijiet tar-4 u l-5 sena flimkien ma’ skejjel ohra fil-kulleġġ San Benedittu.  Dan il-proġett, li kien ukoll reġistrat bħala proġett tal-eTwinning, kellu l-għan li jħeġġeġ lill-istudenti jieħdu gost jaqraw u jagħmlu użu mill-app Octavo li tinsab fuq it-tablet tal-istudenti.  
Bħala parti mill-proġett Issuġġerili Ktieb, l-istudenti kellhom l-opportunita’ li jesprimu l-ħsibijiet tagħhom dwar il-kotba li huma qraw mill-app tal-Octavo (book reviews).  L-istudenti użaw għodod differenti, fosthom Padlet, Flipgrid u J2E biex għamlu x-xogħol tagħhom f’formati differenti (kitba, video, eċċ).  L-istudenti kienu anke involuti fid-disinn ta’ logo għall-proġett u saret kompetizzjoni biex jintgħażel il-logo preferit.  Dan il-proġett kellu wkoll miri relatati mal-iżvilupp tal-istudenti fir-rigward tal-edukazzjoni għal Ċittadinanza Digitali, partikolarment l-użu responsabbli mit-teknoloġija u l-Internet u għalhekk intużaw posters/tips biex jippromwovu mġieba responsabbli matul id-diversi attivitajiet li għamlu t-tfal.

Moreover, Years 1 and 2 classes took part in another project Teddy Goes Virtual.

Project Title: E-Twinning Project Teddy Goes Virtual
Target Audience:  Yr 1 & Yr 2 classes
Timeline: January 2021- April 2021 
About the Project: Teddy’s Adventures started in January 2020 and had to stop in March due to COVID-19 school closure. In October 2020 we decided to re-launch the same project but to go completely virtual with new schools and new activities. Our mascot, Teddy, will be introduced to students aged 4-6 years and together we shall be exploring 6 virtual activities involving different Web 2.0 tools. Through these activities students can express themselves using digital media and technologies. Communication will also occur through a variety of digital tools. 


The project so far: PRE-COVID19 (JAN 2020-MAR2020) Different classes of children aged 5-6 years hosted Teddy, the project’s mascot. Teddy travelled from one school to another and stayed in each school for a whole week. During that week Teddy participated in different activities held within that school. Teachers kept record of all these activities in a collaborative eBook. https://read.bookcreator.com/b2CL304vauV9LBuojYRn0R4xYAD3/4jp6onCAQJuH-gK-pboBPQ
The re-launched project started in January 2020 and will end April 2021.
