Useful CC resources P.

Here you are going to find some of the resources we are using in order to create our e-project. Most of them would be carried out in the school.
As you can see, I have orgenized the resources in several groups.

Sound resources:

Italian tenor  In this link (italian tenor) you´ll can find the sound added below. This kind of music (traditional italian voice) is very useful because we would like to develop a performance, starring by the students, called "european day" in the school.

Video resources:

We would like to use this kind of tools/resources (ICTs) in order to show and transmite, in a realistic way, the main and relevant information about the culture of the countries that our e-project is going to talk about.
In this expample you´ll can see one of the most important volcanos you can find in Italy (european country).

Other video resources that includes interesting information (places and views) we can use in our project would be the next:
A piece of Italy


We are going to use lots of images in order to show the students how, the country they are working with, is. Here you have one example: the wonderful Fontana di Trevi

Other tools/resources: webs sites, apps, "cultural browsers"...

We are going to use all kind of tools and resources that can help us to motivate the student and teach all the information, this project includes, in order to be able to develope it in a funny and a practical way. Here you have some of this tools we´ll use:

-"The complete one" This app includes all kind of information about the countries we are going to work with. This link show you how to learn a little bit of italian but that´s not all, if you insert the name of the country you will find varied information about it.

The e-project PLE
Talking about the tool we have selected in order to create the mind map of our e-project, we have to say that this tool is "Prezi". 
Why Prezi? Because we think that is an innovative resource that allows us to work together and online at the same time. 
Prezi is a visual and funny tool that provides us lot of possibilities in order create a great mind map. Here you have a light idea about our project. And remember, that´s just the beginning.

 Here you have my webmix. I have used the tool called symbaloo because it is allows us to create virtual desktops including our favourite web sites in them. I expect you enjoy.

We are...and our e-project is about...

Hi everyone!

We are group 4, made up by Cristina, Elena, Concha and Pablo.

In this blog, we are going to show all the resources we will create for our e-Project called "Arts & Music around the world".
The main objective of our project is to bring music and art from different countries of the five continents to school, with the purpose of creating an intercultural atmosphere at school and showing pupils that there are different ways of understanding music and art, depending on the country we talk about.
The project will be developed during five days, and each day we will work on one of the countries we have chosen: Brazil, Italy, China, Egypt and New Zealand. We will do different activities related to music and art in the aforementioned countries. We will show you all these activities in this blog! So, we recommend you to visit us every week!

We expect you enjoy it a lot :)

See you!
