Nice to meet you!
First of all, you need to create a gmail account for the group of students who are participating in the project and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Write the subject: English Tales and the name of your school.
Secondly, you should introduce your group. You can use the tool VIDEO RECORDING and explain who you are, where you live, what things you like and dislike....whatever you want.
When you have your presentation ready , you publish it in YOUTUBE or VIMEO.
Youtube and Vimeo have a tab where you can obtain an URL code that must be pasted in your English Sites.
To finish with this task, you need to geolocalize your town in google maps . To do this you must enter in the tab named “centres participants” and click on the map. There, you have to create a pin with the name of your town, add a nice picture and a little description of your city or village.
