App - Phoster
1 iPad for each group of 3 students
In the novel Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell, there is a room in which people are put to face their worst fear. My teen students were not really keen on the lesson until I added the digital twist. I asked each student to list 3 things he\she is really scared of. Then, students had to negotiate in groups of three to come down to only one. I handed out the iPads and asked students to create a poster using Phoster to illustrate their ideas. During the debriefing stage, all students were attentive and participatory.
