“Schoolovision 2009”- 2009 is the European Year of Creativity and Innovation, so, following a similar format to the Eurovision Song Contest, this year taking place in Moscow on 16th May 2009, Schoolovision will allow one primary school from all eTwinning countries wishing to participate, to record, video and upload a song of their choice, to be viewed by all other participants in the project. In addition, all countries will be asked to evaluate and vote for their favourite songs after they have watched and listened to all the others- and of course, voting for yourself will not be allowed! Under the rules of the project, you and your class will have until Friday 8th May to decide upon your song, practise it, video it, and get it uploaded onto the project blog website, using either the video upload section within www.blogger.com, or by using google video. Once all songs are uploaded, you will need to get your class to listen to all the other countries' entries and decide who will receive your votes. This should be done in the week from Monday 11th May until Friday 15th May. On Friday 15th May, we intend to host a FlashMeeting, live webcam conference, for as many of the 31 partners as possible, so we can cast our votes in the style of the Eurovision Song Contest, and find out which country willwin the contest! If you are unable to participate in this live vote, please email your votes to the project coordinator, Michael Purves, by Thursday 14th May. The winning school will be sent a trophy to keep for 1 year, and all schools taking part will be sent special certificates. Full details of the rules of the project will be issued to all schools taking part, by Michael Purves. http://schoolovision2009.blogspot.com
