Pecha-Kucha for Martin Luther King

To celebrate the "MLK Day" this year, we are going to organize a Pecha-kucha Day. In pairs we are going to create a presentation of 20 slides of 20 seconds each based on the biography of Dr. Martin Luther king Jr. his beliefs, his activities, speeches... You can choose to include audio in the presentation or make a script, and explain your slides 'live' in front of the audience. 
When you've finished writing and checking everything, don't forget to write a post in your blog and embed your presentation there. Here we will link them in order to allow other students and visitors see your work.

New Year, New House!

Yes, with the new year, we are moving home.
We won't forget our blogs, wikis, etc. but will include a new 'container' for our work. Our classroom has already its own room at EDMODO.
Edmodo is an education platform which allows both teachers and students do, keep and organise their work as well as share it with other classrooms, teachers...
We will have to discover new features of this space and learn to use it as efficiently as possible, but to start with, you will have to follow these steps:
1. Go to click on the button 'student' and fill in the registration form including the class code that the teacher will give you.
2. Fill in other details in your profile and 'customize' your home page on the platform.
3. Check the calendar and find if there are any tasks to be performed, the deadlines, etc.
4. At home, you can also access to your space at Edmodo and, if you want, install the Edmodo App on your smartphone or tablet.
5. Write a post on your blog, announcing your new workspace (don't forget to include a link)
Good luck!
