STUDENTS WILL LISTEN TO A SONG AND ANSWER 10 SHORT QUESTIONS TO ENSURE THEIR COMPREHENSION OF THE TEXT. THEN, THEY WILL RECORD TWO VIDEOS. IN THE FIRST VIDEO, THEY WILL OFFER ADVICE TO THE SINGER AND EXPRESS THEIR CONCERNS BASED ON WHAT THEY HEARD FROM THE SONG. IN THE SECOND VIDEO, THEY WILL REPLY TO TWO OF THEIR PEERS' VIDEOS AS IF THEY WERE THE SINGER.
Groups of students in American and Japanese Universities work together to do research on an assigned topic (e.g., Technology in Japan and the US; Food in Japan and the US) and they present their final results via Padlet by the end of semester.
Students have the freedom to choose how to present their results. For example, students can make a video, or a poster presentation, or a written report. They are encouraged to use multimedia (skype, messenger, LINE etc.) in the process for discussion and negotiation among members in a group toward the presentation.
This is a writing exercise for a novice German class focussing on writing a fictional personal ad. The exercise is built around the tool PADLET which allows students to share their writing in real time with their classmates. This project comes with a video that talks about the advantages of this exercise but it also points out what instructors need to be aware of. An additional tutorial that shows you how to set up PADLET is added as a link.
