Harry Potter Book Project in Edmodo: A Collaborative Initiative Between Students from Egypt and Canada by Ayat Tawel

Harry Potter Book Project in Edmodo: A Collaborative Initiative Between Students from Egypt and Canada by Ayat Tawel | Internet 2013 | Scoop.it

[excerpt]: "With an increasing acceptance of children using internet for academic purposes, comes apprehension pertaining to their safety and well-being when online. While as educators we want children to become more « net savvy », we need to temper this with precautions to keep them safe on the web. 

 

This session will demonstrate how educators Ayat Tawel and Bernadette Rego successfully established using Edmodo, a free Learning management system, as a place for students from Canada and Egypt to meet and discuss questions enhancing their reading skills using the popular book « Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone ». We will demonstrate how Edmodo and other web 2.0 tools can be used to protect the students' online identity and communication while creating an enriching learning atmosphere."

"About the Project: Frankenstein is a great novel, but it is difficult novel in many ways. The first challenge is helping students unlearn what they know about the story. I do this by simply asking my students to identify the "Frankenstein" in Frankenstein. Most students will answer that the name refers to the monster--the tall guy with green paint and bolts on the side of his head. Actually, the name refers to Victor Frankenstein, the creator of the monster or "creature" as he is often called.

 

I then ask students to tell me what they know of the search for the Northwest Passage. Again, this is a topic that few students know about. Neither did I, in fact, when I first read the novel.

 

After a few articles, illustrations, and maps about this topic, I do not begin Frankenstein, but instead have students read an abridged version of ..."

I'm happy to announce the publication of the long awaited Frankenstein Google Lit Trip.

 

This project was developed by Mr. Gregory Greenleaf and his 2012-2013 Advanced Placement English students at Greely High School in Cumberland, Maine. 

 

I'm also pretty excited about having used Screenflow in order to create the video preview for the Frankenstein Google Lit Trip. Screenflow is capable of capturing 1080 HD video of the computer screen so detail is much easier to see. Take a look for yourselves by viewing the Preview Video here:

Home page says: Submit some text that you want read aloud in a foreign language.  Record your voice for an Audio Request in your native language.  Download the audio file for your submission.  Learn the language through real, native input.

This could be nice for language teacher training: have trainees make and request recordings and evaluate the outcomes.
