Learners can use various ways of collecting information, including online research and creating a Microsoft Form to send to peers and family .Learners will use the information gathered to build within the Minecraft: Education Edition ‘Museum of Wales’ and build exhibits to showcase Wales.
They will use other tools available on Hwb, for example Microsoft Sway / Flipgrid to create an ideas board in order to select the most important aspects of Wales that they would like to include.
