Reflections on EVO (2009 and later)

My first professional blog

My wiki project

Posted by Mariel Amez on February 7, 2009

I mentioned earlier that I had started designing a wiki for FCE students to be used this year, as detailed in a post to Collaborative Writing.

One of the pages, which I called “Around the World”, includes 3 videos from http://www.nextvista.org/collection-list-global-views/

They are videos for the cities of Lagos, Nagasaki and Merida. My idea is that sts should first comment on the videos. The actual task is

Watch these videos made by students about their hometowns.
  •  Which of these cities would you like to visit? Why?  
  • Does any of these cities share features with Rosario?
 Tell us in the comments (try to use as much specific vocabulary as possible).

Then, they would write a script for our hometown collaboratively on a new wiki page. Depending on skill, time and tools available, this could develop into a video, or just be limited to a writing exercise.

  1. Hello! My name is Rushton, and I run nextvista.org.

    An alert let me know about your blog posting, and I was delighted to see that you are working on ways to use the videos on our site! If I can be of any help, please do not hesitate to contact me.

    In the early 1990’s, I visited Argentina, and spent a wonderful five weeks exploring Buenos Aires, Cordoba, Mendoza, and Missiones Province. I hope to get back there someday to do some more traveling.

    Best wishes from California,
    Rushton
