  • Oral Presentation- Product: Digital poster/ model. 

Short oral presentations in pairs. The groups will illustrate the new ending with their product. Students will show their digital poster / model to the class. The teacher will provide and explain the assessment grids to coevaluate and for self-assessment of the groups.

The assessment grids contain:

-Aspects to be evaluated : use of TICs, group presentation (the main message), product (poster/model), suggestions.
