"WAY TO GO-paths of life"
Date du début: 1 sept. 2015,
Date de fin: 31 août 2017
The whole project “Way to Go-paths of life” is a mosaic of different learning environments which focus on three very important paths-aspects of life that is History, Culture and Nature further analyzed into issues of art, music, traditions, cuisines, sports life and healthy living. All these elements compose everyone’s Tree of Life which starts growing from their roots which are the historic background of their families, their hometown and their countries. Apart from that, strong bonds with Culture and Nature make this tree even more robust and fruitful. The learning environments we aim to create during our project’s lifetime are permeated with the principles of “Lifelong learning” and “Learning to learn” through a new perspective of more dynamic and attractive ways of teaching and learning and ICT-based methodologies. These new innovative methods are to be in alignment with the principles of the “New Curriculum in Finland”.
Through the exploitation of mobile technology and ICT tools both teachers and students will get involved in a game-like process of problem-solving, synthesizing information, using their imagination and critical thinking in order to reach any expected learning outcomes. Students will actively participate, increase their sense of initiative, share thoughts, collaborate with their peers in different learning environments and mark their own learning routes along this journey instead of being unappealingly spoon-fed with a pile of information. Marking your own route in life in such a creative and inventive way can make you an independent thinker and a resourceful entrepreneur capable of dealing with the challenges of life.
There are nine partner schools: two from Finland which is the coordinating country and the other ones are from Iceland, Slovakia, Croatia, Italy, Spain, Turkey, and Greece. One of the schools is vocational while the others are general secondary schools. Most partner schools have participated in previous multilateral or bilateral Comenius partnerships, and other European Union granted projects while three of them participate for the first time.
Apart from the creation of the project website, the logo, the blog and a picture gallery as well as having a poster competition, there will be a variety of courses and ICT teaching. Teachers and students will get acquainted with new ICT-based methods and new principles in the educational process.
With the use of these methods students and teachers of each country will
- walk the “path from home to each partner school” marking these routes on maps with QR-codes, behind which there will be more information about the history of those places (facts, pictures, videos)
- walk along different kind of paths in nature, gather material such as photos, sounds, videos, and samples and process it to make presentations
- make various presentation games about music, dance, food, natural sights, sports, art of their countries
-get involved in preparing traditional dishes in each country
-be involved in various breakfast environments from different countries of EU and make a poster with 10 Healthy Breakfast Tips
-make culture activity maps with information about art, crafts, music, sport, food and literature of different parts of their country
- construct a European Art Path and make a tourism video or presentation explaining the best places or art pieces
-learn techniques in craftwork, make products and create on-line "shop” to raise money for charities or other beneficial activities or events
-get involved in geocaching activities along the “path of history” through some popular historical sites in each country
-take part in sports activities to walk successfully on the “path of sports”
- contribute to the final art exhibition of the whole project
-create travel diaries after each mobility
Also, at the final mobility meeting a seminar with workshops will be conducted to share project results with a broader public of the educational community.
Through multicultural dialogue students will become even more aware of belonging to a broader European family responding to the EU values of active citizenship and intercultural solidarity exorcising xenophobia, racism and social isolation. Both students’ and teachers’ participation will increase their motivation for language and digital competence through the extensive use of ICTs. Our partnership will enhance a more integrated use of ICTs in education, the development of students’ transversal skills and student-centred learning contributing to innovative and more attractive ways of teaching and inspiring both teachers of the participating schools and those of other school communities to adopt new methodologies, raise their students’ motivation and fight professional stagnation.
