The Giggle IT Project is run in partnership with the IASL (International Association of School Librarianship). It is aimed at 10 – 14 year olds, but can be adapted to other ages. Once registered, the work submitted to the GiggleIT Team will be presented on the class/school GiggleIT website. The project for 2011 is ‘the colours of our land’, with four competitions running:
1) Name Our Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in your culture – class, collaborative project
2) Design your personal logo – individual project
3) Write a haiku poem – individual project
4) Create a travel poster – individual project
The Giggle IT Project’s website details instructions for teachers who would like to sign-up their class, including lesson plans, and provides instructions for each competition, with voicethread slides to help explain the details. The competitions do not close until 1st November 2011.
