The Trix and Trax Talents & Skills Challenge Experience
HundrED has not validated this innovation
Why did you create this innovation?
We wanted to give students a different, exciting, and fun online learning experience, especially since online learning has become the norm with the pandemic. We adopted the game show format that we had originally created for the MIP Cancun Formats Pitch 2020 and transformed it to an online class format https://www.mipcancun.com/en-gb/program/entertainment-pitch-formats.html
How does your innovation work in practice?
This Challenge Experience is designed to help students discover and develop their talents in the arts, music, dance, sports ... experiential work, self-confidence, creativity, communication, and empathy. This format allows, in turn, to develop self-management, decision-making, problem-solving, and critical thinking skills with a special emphasis on the ability to collaboratively identify who they are and who their colleagues are and how together they can work as a team to give respond in the most creative way to each challenge to create, produce and publish the winning video for the T&T CHALLENGES In each "Class" (episode) our mentors will evaluate the work of our participants based on the quality of the video, creativity, collaboration, and communication. For each challenge 1 week to create and produce the videos and the 2nd week to post this video on Flipgrid a platform (closed and private to students in the class), engage and get the most comments, views, and likes.
How has it been spreading?
We started this pilot with 7th graders that were divided into 8 teams of 12-13 students. In 10 weeks and with 95 students, we received 301 videos created by the students and uploaded to the Flipgrid platform, 9.650 views, 85.9 hours of engagement, 885 comments on the videos. The digital tools integrate easily with Flipgrid, Google classroom, Google meet, padlet, and each student uses their phone or camera to record the videos
We are ready to open this Challenge Experience to the world
