Communication and Collaboration – Day 6

Showcasing Your Commercial

Do you remember our scenario?

You’ve been hired by a tech company to develop a commercial for one of their products. The company thinks that their tool will really benefit communication and collaboration in classrooms – but teachers aren’t really aware of their product. The company needs you to develop an  infomercial about their product to convince teachers that the tool will benefit students. 

So, today, you will play the role of an executive board member of the company. While each group presents their commercial, think how the commercial effectively fits your company’s needs. Then you will evaluate each commercial using this survey form based on three criteria. The group whose commercial received the highest score will earn LATE PASS!! Be fair as you are the executive board member!

Here are the list of tools that we will learn about today:

  • Padlet (Wallwisher)
  • Skype
  • Prezi
  • Diigo
  • Socrative
  • Dropbox
  • Kidblog
  • Pearltrees 
  • Evernote 
  • Delicious


  • If you have not yet done, please create a ‘Tool Commercial’ page on your Google Site, and provide a brief description and a link to your infomercial. Otherwise, I will not be able to grade your work.
  • Your grades for the social media project are posted. If you are willing to do, you can revise your project according to my feedback for the full credit. LET ME KNOW if you have difficulty accessing your grade book.

For Monday:

  • We will start talking about our second theme: Creativity and Innovation. Please complete the 3rd reading assignment.
