Your Task

Your team has been hired to create a new ad campaign to promote a non-profit organization (of your choosing).

As a collaborative team, do some research about the non-profit to understand its mission.  

Plan your ad campaign including identifying your target audience and paying attention to the culture and "feel" of the organization.  

Create something to share.  

Remember: baby steps are fine, so are giant leaps...standing still is not:)



Use these resources to research your non-profit organization.

BadgerLink - A project of the Wisconsin DPI that provides quality online information resources to Wisconsin residents.  BadgerLink is a huge collection of databases ranging from Auto Repair to Literary Criticism.  

Student Research Center - This is one of the database search engines provided by BadgerLink.  It is a favorite of high school students due to the friendly interface.

Google - Always popular, Google searches the free web.  This is the perfect tool to find your non-profit organization's website.



Record your learning in a GoogleDoc.  You can share one and watch as you and your teammates add to the note-taking.  Or, if you'd rather, assign one recorder to take notes while your teammates do the research. 



Choose from one of these links to create your ad campaign.

Animoto - Create amazing videos! Surprisingly simple...just put in your pictures, choose some music, and voila - you've made a video.  You will need to create an account to use Animoto.  

VoiceThreadA VoiceThread is a collaborative, multimedia slide show that holds images, documents, and videos and allows people to navigate slides and leave comments.  Share a VoiceThread with friends, students, and colleagues for them to record comments too.

Xtranormal - Create a 3D animated movie instantly!

ToonDoo - Create your own comic strip with just a few clicks, drag & drops. 

Make Beliefs Comix - Another comic strip creation website.

Prezi - Known as the zooming presentation maker.  Allows collaboration - the entire team can be working at one time on the same Prezi.

SlideRocket (login to your Google account and look under "More") - Part of our GoogleDocs package.  Similar to PowerPoint, but this allows collaboration.



Sharing time...let's celebrate our new learning together!

Take some time to think about how you might use the new tools you picked up today in the classroom with students.  We'll share those ideas as well.
