Olympics project

We’re going to begin a project which will include us using a brand new presentation tool – PREZI. All the links that students need to start the project are below. Listen carefully when we discuss them in class. Click on this URL.  http://www.3x3links.com/olympicsproject2012

Project:

1. Click on the link called, “Lesson Project Microsoft”.  Find the document to the right of the page entitled, “Olympic Games student handout“. Save and then Open this Word document. The outline of your project is here. HOWEVER, instead of presenting the work in a Publisher leaflet, we will be using PREZI for the end publication.

2. Click on the link to “Create your mascot”. You need to create a mascot who will serve as a narrator for your project. Use the link to “create your mascot”  This should then be saved as a screen shot in MS Word. We will learn how to crop an image in Photoshop. (A help video is included in the links.)

3. Click on the following links:

  • Olympic Games History
  • Olympic Sports

Choose a city where the games were previously held AND a single sport to write about. The ‘Information Ideas’ with the questions is where you fill in the answers (on the Word document) once you’ve completed your research. This is simply rough work, or preparation for the content of your publication.  The project must include sufficient text and images to cover the suggested ideas.

4. There is a link to a PDF “how to” for PREZI as well as a link to a video on how to use PREZI. There are only slight differences to the interface as PREZI has been updated recently. Do not be afraid to explore the application.

5. Extension tasks will include creating your own Olympic logo in Photoshop and completing the online Olympics quizzes.

Have fun!
