Never say I can't!






So, YOU are in the epicentre this year! So let's talk about... you!
 What do you want the team to know about you?
What are your hobbies, favourite bands, songs, holiday places, cartoon heroes, or anything else you want to share.
YOU chose how to present yourself in a FUN way! Here are a few ideas and of course you are free to use any other way you want!
  1. Create a Pinterest board with 10 pins that summarize them.
  2. Create a 30 second podcast that introduces themselves. Then you can present them or play them on separate devices in class as an audio gallery.
  3. Write a blog post in the classroom blog  introducing yourself to the rest of the classroom.
  4. Create a quick comic strip to describe yourself or to recreate a recent funny moment in your life.
  5. Create a word cloud to describe yourself and share with the rest of the class.
  6. Create your own Voki avatar that introduces yourself to the class. It's going to be even funnier when you are creative with the backgrounds, characters and details of the avatar to reflect your own personality and preferences.
  7. Create a graffiti online  that speaks to your interests and personality and share with the class.
  8. Create mashup videos of yourself with Weavly to introduce their interests to the class.
  9. Create a Google map of 5 places you have visited and share with the class
  10. Research your birth date in history and share interesting events with the class.
