Read each task carefully and decide as a group how you can best communicate your thoughts and knowledge in the media you have been assigned.

REMEMBER....

  • Make sure you answer all the questions within the task. This may (but not necessarily) mean creating muliple (more than one) "answer" in your mode of media - but make sure you keep your "answers" short and sweet.
  • Before you use any images from the internet - check with Mrs O'Hagan. (You must always reference where you got these images from so as not to breach copyright. Make sure you hyperlink the image back to the original site that you got it from as well.)
  • Plan your "answers" in your books - talk to each other and discuss the best possible way to get your views across.
  • Keep it short and sweet!!
  • Remember images must be loaded to "My Documents" and then uploaded to your media.
  • Remember to use our class password and login where ever you need to use an account. If you use your own - then other people will not be able to do their work if you are away.
  • Make sure you stick to the page layout - so that your work looks neat and tidy.
  • Make sure you stick to your allocated media to complete your task. Everyone will have a turn at all the different medias.
  • You will only have one lesson to complete each task - so you need to work really efficiently and effectively.
  • Remember that the whole world can see your work - so make sure you communicate as if you were communicating to your parents, Mr Williams, the Prime Minister, a tribal leader, etc.
  • Remember that I can see everything that you do and when you do it. To keep being allowed to do this project - make sure you are doing the right thing at all times.
  • Obvious instruction...ONLY edit your group's page!!
