This project on food surplus was carried out in October 2020 with eighth-grade students in Finland. In total eight Finnish teachers participated in the planning and implementation of this theme week and two teachers planned this workshop on food surplus. The preliminary planning of this project took about three days and the last day of this theme week was used for evaluation and reporting of the workshops.
The aim of this project was to learn about climate change with different themes. Other goals for this project were learning about different digital text types and creating them.
The eighth-grade students of a Finnish lower secondary school were divided into groups of about 10 students and they worked together in a two-day workshop with the direction of two teachers. The outcome of this project were different multimodal presentations made by the students.
