Description of my Project

Topic:  Designing online video-making tasks to increase fourth graders’ motivation for autonomous learning behaviour
 
 Question: Will online video-making tasks increase fourth grader's motivation for autonomous learning behaviour?
 
Through previous interaction with my students, I have seen motivation for creating videos online.  Thanks to new technology provided by internet, there are websites that help learners create videos in an easy way.  One of the problems that I have notice while developing these tasks is that students lack of autonomous learning behaviour, which leads to a product that the students do not like.  Based on this reflection, I plan to increase my fourth grade students' motivation through online video-making tasks to adopt an autonomous learning behavior. 
 
This Project will be carried out in a private institution in Bogotá.   I will be working with 15 fourth grade students that have access to internet inside and outside the classroom.
