ABSTRACT

Nobody questions that maintaining students' concentration is getting harder and harder. Their attention span is shortening and making them focused has become a skill.

Do you want your students to develop their writing, speaking, researching, interviewing, argumenting and team-working skills in a real-life context? Why not have them create their own online magazine? We will tell you about the project we have created for our Journalism students and help you think of how to adapt it to your students’ profiles.
