Download the following instructions from Week 5 as a handout here


Use GOOGLE and YOUTUBE to get ideas! for a MOTTO or slogan

  • Google terms like 'motto' and 'slogan' and 'environment' and 'sustainability'.  Let Google autocomplete other terms like 'environmental issues'.  This will send you to sites like this one: http://www.thinkslogans.com/slogans/environmental-slogans/
  • Google 'sustainability' and 'environmental issues' with 'YouTube' to find thousands of videos leading to more and more ideas on environmental issues.


Put your motto and paragraph in a Google Doc

  • In a Google Doc write your motto and a paragraph explaining why you chose that motto and what it means in relation to Earth Day April 22.
  • Share this document with vancestev@gmail.com


Create your Prezi for the Planet

  • Make your Prezi to convince others that they should help protect the planet by paying closer attention to the issue highlighted in your motto or slogan
  • Include at least one but not more than two YouTube videos in your presentation
    (make sure the videos are in the Prezi path and will play) 
  • Include at least three pictures to illustrate the issue you are presenting.  
    State the main point each picture illustrates and give at details in smaller text about each picture.
  • Be sure your Prezi has appropriate opening and closing statements 
  • Email the link to your Prezi to vstevens@hct.ac.ae by April 19



Your project will be marked on the criteria given above

You can download the marking scheme your teacher will use here

What we accomplished


I told the cadets they would be a part of an annual movement of students called EarthBridges who get hundreds of students together each year to commemorate the event and stream much of it live.  This year April 22 was on a Sunday, which was a problem for schools in much of the world, but we soldiered on, and added our contribution to that movement here: http://earthbridges.wikispaces.com/


I then joined a number of colleagues on the real Earth Day Sunday, Apr 22, 2012, who were participating in an online event over the weekend.  I invited colleagues (whom I’ve met only online) to join us and talk about their work with EarthBridges. We made a live recording of our contribution and archived what we did here: http://learning2gether.posterous.com/125618417


I created a Prezi to show how the whole thing came together:



I blogged it here with a picture of the event as it looked online
