Key questions
  • What is a lesson synthesis?
  • How can we synthesize a lesson?
  • What kind of language can we use?
  • What platforms fit best to synthesize and share the contents?
  • How do we engage the audience with our contents?
  • What can we learn from this activity?

The profiles on the platforms that are chosen (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube ...) are created by the teacher as a class account. Or you can create multiple accounts for each group. It is important to stipulate at the beginning of this activity a series of rules on privacy, use of copyrighted content, type of language that will be used, etc. (30’)

The class is divided into groups of between 2 and 4 students (5 '). Each group assigns roles to its members, depending on the individual abilities of each person. (10’)

Once the class is over, the group meets (or perhaps at the end of the session or outside of class hours) and discusses the most important topics in their opinion that have been developed during the session.  (15’).

Once they have selected the content they want to synthesize, they design the message and choose the most appropriate platform to spread it. (15’).

According to the organization of the group, the people chosen for the task carry out the synthesis of the class and upload it to the chosen platform.  (30’-80’).

The teacher at the beginning of the next class returns the content that the students have uploaded to the platform so that it can be discussed with the rest of the students (10-15’).


The teacher should evaluate:

  • The ability to synthesize;
  • The coherence and clarity of the contents;
  • The adaptation to the language of the chosen platform;
  • The ability to generate interaction with the class;
  • The planning and organization of the work team;
