  • 0:02 - 0:05
    In collaboration with Citilab
  • 0:54 - 0:57
    The activity of Write With a Satellite
  • 0:57 - 1:04
    is an experience for discovering and discuss
  • 1:04 - 1:07
    the impact of satellites
  • 1:09 - 1:11
    and the whole concept of geolocation in a broad sense.
  • 1:11 - 1:17
    And get kids a little bit into the discovery
  • 1:17 - 1:19
    through its own identity, such as its name,
  • 1:19 - 1:22
    or one from person they want to make a special gift
  • 1:22 - 1:26
    of how to make letters with the world.
  • 1:26 - 1:33
    Whether geographic features or buildings, things made by human beings.
  • 1:33 - 1:40
    All the activity revolves around provoking a reflection about what satellites really do.
  • 1:40 - 1:43
    How de they get the information and what are the consequences of that.
  • 1:43 - 1:46
    And then there's a more esthetic or more graphic side
  • 1:46 - 1:51
    in seeing how these letters are created with a specific software.
  • 1:51 - 1:57
    And from there participants generate their adhesive and then have an identity element
  • 1:57 - 2:05
    that they have to present at the end, practising presentation-related skills...
  • 2:05 - 2:13
    Seeing what a chromakey has to do with it, an image behind those who present.
  • 2:37 - 2:44
    The Virtual Tour activity seeks to provoke street navigation,
  • 2:44 - 2:52
    wandering around urban settings, cities, in a remote way.
  • 2:52 - 2:55
    We use again an Open Web tool
  • 2:55 - 3:01
    which is related to the topic of geolocation.
  • 3:01 - 3:08
    And we try that the participant who is learning
  • 3:08 - 3:11
    thinks first about his immediate environment.
  • 3:11 - 3:15
    That is, navigates through the streets of what he knows.
  • 3:15 - 3:18
    And then we change the context,
  • 3:18 - 3:22
    into an exploration activity that where we can choose other cities.
  • 3:22 - 3:27
    Trying to cause some reflection about how would life be outside our context.
  • 3:27 - 3:32
    Hence the final objective of the activity is again the presentation in front of a camera.
  • 3:32 - 3:37
    Show knowledge, or at least information about this new context behind the participant.
  • 3:37 - 3:42
    Pretending that the learner, the person who made this activity,
  • 3:42 - 3:45
    is in a completely different geographic context.
