PROJECT: Brazil + Croatia Project




GOAL: participants will be able to develop communication skills in the English Language.


TARGET AUDIENCE: a group of 10 teenage students (13-17) from Brazil and Croatia.


TECHNOLOGY EXPECTED: students will be using their own devices (cell phones, tablets or computers) to communicate in a private Google+ community


STAKEHOLDERS: teachers, parents, directors.


DEADLINE: project will be developed during four weeks. (10 May - 10 June)




Students from Brazil will be paired up with students from Croatia to communicate during 4 weeks.


Objective:  to learn as much as they can about the other student, football in his/her country and the place where he/she lives during this period of time. At the end of the 4 weeks, each student will write a report to the teacher expressing what they have learned.


Platform: students from both countries will join a Google+ community. Both teachers, from Brazil and Croatia, will be the managers of the community. Students will be divided in pairs so they can develop a conversation. Their communication can be via text, audio files, videos, photos using any kind of file they wish to attach to their messages. Teachers will have access to their communication the whole time.


Teachers' role: to get students in contact, divide them into pairs and manage their conversation. Students' messages don't need to be corrected by the teacher beforehand as the objective is not accuracy but the development of a conversation. However, the teacher can prepare activities to be carried out in class with some common mistakes observed (without identifying students).


Final Task: by the end of 4 weeks, each student should publish a report to their teacher, explaining how the communication took place and what he/she learned about the other student. The final report should contain at least 200 words and images/ videos to illustrate it.


The reports will be posted on a common wiki: http:/brazilcroatiaproject.pbworks.com

which will then be shared with parents.
