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.

In small groups, they will choose one francophone country and 5 of the 17 United Nations goals. After doing some research, students will use Utellstory.com to illustrate how they would implement the 5 chosen goals in their country of choice. Each goal will be represented by an image, an explanatory text, and an oral narrative. ACTFL interpretive, interpersonal and presentational communication modes will be activated as well.
