EGER 7th-13th JANUARY 2019
The first year of the project has its roots in our “WALLS”, understood as our identity, what defines us and makes us different from others. We will approach contents related to our tangible heritage and thus this activity is called “the walls we see”.
Before the first exchange of pupils, they will have worked on their heritage. Some tasks may include research work, interactive maps and brochures (in collaboration with local institutions), virtual timelines, online photo albums, audiovisuals about an artistic style or a cultural movement, photo contests… The involvement of teachers from several disciplines will enable schools to carry out these multidisciplinary task-based activities during the normal course of their school routine. Besides, these activities will be shared in the Twinspace of the project and online videoconferences will let students introduce themselves and talk about their work before meeting in Eger.
During the exchange. Day 1: Welcome and ice-breaking activities. Introduction of the plan of the visit. Each school will present and share what they have learnt about their heritage. A group of teachers and/or field experts will assess the presentations taking into account their communicative competence, the content and their mise-en scene. Besides, the students will participate in the daily routine of the host school by taking part in the lessons, which must have some activities to favour the inclusion and cohesion of all the students. Meanwhile, the teachers will meet to talk about the progress of the project and the following exchanges. Days 2 and 3: These days will be devoted to the exploration of the area of Eger. The host school will be responsible for involving their local authorities, organising cultural visits and guiding around the area. Also students from the four countries will work collaboratively in groups to create a final product (a video, a Kahoot, a diary, a presentation, a show/drama –using PBL methodology-, a photo album, a booklet…) of the visit, which shows their learning experience on the ground and the contents developed during the exchange. The Hungarian students will have a leading role in their groups. The content and working methods will be driven by students’ choice and their own skills. The final products will be done in English since it is the common language of all the students, however the other languages will be used as an additional communicative support. The students will use computers and ICT tools to carry this out. Day 4: The students will finish and share their product. Assessment of the exchange. Delivery of certificates. Farewell ceremony.
We expect these results: paper and online-based cultural materials of all the cities involved in the project, research studies about heritage, oral, written and audiovisual presentations. Among the students: improved skills and key competences, an increased autonomy, self-confidence and communicative skills and a higher engagement in local communities.
