In Fictum, inspired by one given image of a tree fallen on a car crashing it in half, group members had to write down a phrase each concerning what was going on in the image. Then we could call for a vote about the favourite image-text connection. Then sticking with the winner, we went ahead to the next round until the final Round 6 where the story, developed by the participants, ended. The Goal was improvisation, brainstorming, critical thinking and reflection about brainstorming. Using the Canva app, we designed digital flyers promoting our school and educational services adding audio to it.
Then on day four we had probably the best PBL exercise when we had a whole morning to produce a podcast group by group and to present it in the afternoon. My group’s topic was the integration of migrants into society. The main frames were the Skeletal Structure, Storyboard and Scenes, and Recording and Editing. There was the basic script, the interviewer, the speakers and the invited guest who was a sociologist expert in matter. Everyone from a group had a role assigned to him or her in the development of the story including setting even the audio background. This experimental exercise turned out to be very popular among us for its practical side since it can be implemented for our students as a very innovative PBL tool promoting collaborative approach to learning. We also learnt about digital sculpting tools that can be useful for students with creative- artistic tendencies.
On Thursday afternoon we went on a guided Rome-tour which was a feeling second to none as our guide Giorgio let us in on the details of the City tourist of a beaten path we do not know. This experience continued on Saturday when we were given a RomaPass to discover the museums of Rome with 48 hours unlimited access to the most renowned archaeological sites of the world, including the Coliseum and Foro Romano as well, at a fraction of the original ticket price.
