When students are working independently (either alone or in teams), they post periodic status updates so other students and the teacher can easily see what they are doing and how they are progressing. The documentation can also be used by an individual or team to quickly understand where the project was left off last and what steps have to be taken next.

Learning outcomes




Reasons for using technology


Required time


When starting a project, instruct the students to post a daily update of what they’ve been doing. Let them know that these updates are shared with other teams and you, and you will give additional support if needed based on what they say in their update.

Instruct them to make their daily update in the style of a news flash (like on TV news) and that it should be no longer than 1 minute (so that the teacher can easily check updates from all teams in just a few minutes). Ask them to answer 3 questions: (1) What we did. (2) What we’re going to do. (3) Any problems?

Share the videos (see activity 9 “Sharing files”)

Ask the students to view the news flashes of the other students or teams and to comment on them.

At the end of the project, students document their overall learning outcome, summarise the comments, explain possible future steps to deepen understanding, in a 1-2 minute video.


Technology support

TeamUp supports team work and quick status updates, as well as reflecting on them later.
