Teaching Religious Education and Information and Communication Technologies
Topic: Easter Coding and more!
Polish and Greek Project Teachers work on the lesson plan and visuals to prepare and teach, using ICT, Easter which is shared by both Polish and Greek cultures and, as a topic, it can be found in both curricula. To combine RE and ICT and make the lesson more interactive and produce a cooperative result, the following tasks were done by all the Tutees.
In class, an online video is used to teach Easter vocabulary in English.
Tasks for Tutees
A. Tutees use the same code and create Easter messages. They post their coded messages on the padlet wall below for their international partners to see, download and solve. Partners use the code to find out the message and add the message to the post in the form of a comment. They also react to the Easter message using a feature provided by the padlet wall.(For example, they can click on the heart below the comment if they like the message) BLUE posts on the padlet wall
B. Tutees generate QR codes using Easter customs and wishes in their native language (Polish or Greek) and the project language. Partners will "scan" each other's customs and wishes and comment on them using the "comment" feature of the padlet posts. PINK posts on the padlet wall
C. Tutees wish their partners "Happy Easter". Their wish is recorded in native and project languages. The videos are posted on the padlet wall along with a collective video of wishes. YELLOW posts on the padlet wall
D. Tutees play a game of Kahoot. The game tests their linguistic and cultural knowledge of Easter. After playing, the Tutees use the padlet photos of themselves playing Kahoot to comment on the game (e.g. I liked it because ...) GREEN posts on the padlet wall
