FALL SEMESTER PROJECT
For this project, students first wrote together in groups to write a short script based on school related vocabulary. Then they filmed them acting out the script using Ipads. Last, they edited their I-movie adding Chinese subtitles as well as silly special effects.
For this project, students first used their I-pads to type a Chinese "digital book" introducing each member of the family. Then they used the I-movie app to make an interactive slideshow based on the book. It was a rigorous process that allowed them to integrate technology and their language skills, and I am very impressed with the final product and their overall hard-work. This project they did completely by themselves, except for some pronunciation guidance from their instructor.
Please view the final products below. :)
秋学期的大作业 Fall Semester Project
The students took a “selfie” with a family member (or their classroom teacher ) using their Ipads. In Mandarin class, they used the “Chatterpix Kids” app to create a talking picture that introduced their family member using the Mandarin sentence patterns they have been learning this month.
