Violence against women in the EU

Good morning

Today, November 25th, is the day to say NO to violence against women. We would like you to write a leaflet as a campaign against this type of violence.

Getting informed must be a first step to a good campaign to say NO to violence against women. Last year a terrible piece of news struck me: one of the biggest surveys had been carried out in Europe about violence against women, and the results were devastating. Here I give you a link to the report with the results. As it is very long, check the index and look into those aspects you are more interested in.

Although it is in Spanish, I invite you to listen to Iñaki Gabilondo talking about the results of this survey:

I want you to use  Lucidpress to design the leaflet.

You have four lessons to do this. Last day, December 2nd.

When a team has to find and select specific information, it is a good idea to divide work. However, this sometimes leads to different organizational problems: one uses a format, another person uses another format. Preparing a google drive spreedsheet altogether is a good idea to avoid such problems, and then each member of the team will do his or her work, but everybody else will see and follow every other student's progress.

Let's see a practical case. I want you to get information about the Nobel Prize Winners throughout the last  20 years. You are 20 people, so this should be quite easy if you divide work properly.

This is the spreadsheet you have to complete.

When you finish, take time to look at the result. Have a look at all the Nobels and choose the Nobel who has drawn your attention and write a complete and personal article about that person. Select relevant information about the person, information that will explain why you chose them.

How to publish your mindmap

Dear students
Today I would like you to write a post in your blog explaining the work you have done with mind42. Tell the readers why you have chosen the topic.

Then publish the mind map and insert it in your blog in four different ways. The result should be similar to this:

  • Give a link to the mindmap.
  • Embed the mindmap like this: 
  • Now export the mindmap as a JPEG file and insert the image here:

  • Now export the mindmap as a PDF file and upload it to your drive. Then share the document with all the class, including me, and provide a link like this.

And you will be wondering: but how do we do this??? Experiment with the application, it is not difficult. Just a clue: open your mindmap and open the menu at the top (in the centre).
