The aim of the project is for each contributing school to represent at least one different country in their bid to host the world cup.
Stage 1 – Each group would have to decide on which country to represent – researching information such as climate, previous world cups etc.
Stage 2 – Using a variety of ICT tools to create their bid – this could be posters, promotional videos, websites, radio broadcasts etc. This could then be completely open for each school to decide on exactly what their children produce so could be tailored to suit different age groups and abilities. Children could also design the official logo, mascots and even stadiums.
Stage 3 – Publishing their work online through blogs and Twitter so that they can try and gain support for their bid.
Stage 4 – The final presentation. Each contributing school would prepare a short presentation which could be broadcast live or prerecorded online on the final day. Followers of the project could then vote for the ‘country’ they think should host the World Cup. Online voting tools would then allow us to reveal the winning bid and a suitable prize could go to that winning team.
I imagine running the project for the spring term – one issue that may occur is that as I work in an independent school my term dates would be different from state schools so co-ordinating the final presentations may be tricky.
Please let me know if you would be interested in possibly taking part or if you can think of any other ideas to develop the project further.
