Finally, the students made presentations via the “Keynote” application and students from each group had to present their research in English to the rest of the group.

           The activity on 21st April 2016 was about writing Storyboard using “Note” and “Book creator” applications. Students from each group created a short film from the the storyboards they made using “iMovie” application. After the activity had finished, students presented their work through AirDrop. All students coordinated well with each other in this activity and the knowledge they received was of real benefit to them.
