Article: Challenging future e-Teachers to blog e-Projects 7th Virtual Round Table Web Conference

We had the chance to present our e-project in the web conference 25-27 April 2014 Language Learning Technologies. In particular, our presentation was on Sunday 27th. At the beginning of the conference, the coordinator Angelika was checking that the audio was working properly for every co-presenter. Apart from that, in the previous day, the co-presenters took part in a sound proof to ensure that their sound devices were fully functionating.
At first, Angelika presented our teacher, Mª Jesus, who later on introduced a few students of the Master’s Course called Bilingual Education in Primary School and English Language Immersion. On the top we could see the videos of the presenters who were explaining their e-Projects and under them, there was a Power Point presentation related to the subject The use of ICT and Digital Resources in Primary Bilingual Education, which has lasted three months and during this period of time we have acquired useful digital competences that enable us to apply many resources on the Internet that we hadn’t known yet.

All of us explored and designed different resources to develop our e-Projects such as: trailers, mind maps to organize our aims, webmixes, podcasts, logos and so on. 
Jorge presented our e-Project: Art and Music in Jars. We all were very pleased to spread our e-Project to the world because we spent a lot of time in this project and it was a challenge for us to achieve our goals. Being honest, we are not experts in technologies and when we started we found different troubles hard to solve. However, with the help of Mª Jesús we could manage them.

Art and music in jars: the new concept

Art and Music in jars

Hello everybody! We are Patricia, Alberto, Eva, Andrea and Jorge. We have decided to link our projects "Toolkits in jars" and "Make your heart beat", because we think that the combination of them can be very productive due to the fact that we can share art and music by making tutorials (which is the main goal of the Toolkits in Jars Project). Our project is called "Art and Music in jars".

The main goal of our Project is to approach learners to Culture and Art through making different tutorials, our Project will be focus on music and different artistic expressions.  We have chosen this project because we think that by using Music and Art we can express our feelings, emotions and ideas.
 That is why we want to teach our students the different ways of learning and understanding the music and the art depending on the country you belong to or your culture and traditions.

 In order to reach that, we will deal with different art and music expressions around the world. In order to show the different resources we are going to provide and how our project is progressing, we have created the following blog.

We hope you like this new e-Project that we are carrying out now :)
