Description of the activity:
All countries participated in the development of common results/activities as well as undertaking the responsibility to design and develop results of their own. The project activities directly relate to the goals of the project. Partner schools coordinated their pupils & teachers in local activities and in common activities which were carried out between mobilities. We have split our project goals and our commitment to using creativity, innovation and artistic expression into four target categories as shown below. Over a period of 24 months, each category will be mapped/married with both local and common activities. Partner schools engaged teachers and students with two target categories every year.
Activities C2/A1: All students and teachers participated in the development of common results/activities (transnational co-productions) as well as undertook the responsibility to design and develop results of their own. C2 project activities directly relate to Year 1 goals of the project that is: Opposition to racism and fanaticism.
Results: • develop personal and common broadcasts related to Year 1 goals.
Activities C2/A2: Presentation of the platform, namely, the Web Radio and Web Radio Portal, the educational material, educational scenarios, the guides and tutorials. Presentation of how the SWRadio will support the educational process and at the same time provides an approach to digital and media literacy for students in secondary education. Exchange of teacher activities (what works in terms of innovative methods and pedagogies).
Results: • Understanding of the importance of Web Radio Portal and SWRadio. • Strengthening of the cooperation and networking between our organisations.
Activities C2/A3: Participants got involved with workshops. The workshops were hands on experience and will work on preparation, organisation and recording of audio shows.
Results: • Students had the opportunity to pose questions about the web radio for schools and share their views with others.
Activities C2/A4: Partner school from Patra explained the technological background needed for the new SWRadio project.
The students participated in transnational co-productions enriched their creativity and innovation and improved their skills at the area of arts, media, journalism and sound engineering. In this context the proposed project developed basic and transversal skills using an innovative method with educational added value, the Web Radio Portal. C2 activities seeked action by student themselves on preventing and dealing with racist incidents and promote change in the environment for the cultivation of values, such as equality and respect for the rights of all. C2 activities build on solid voice for peace, highlight the broader values that should distinguish our youth, values such as tolerance, respect, acceptance of diversity, equity and opposition to the rhetoric of hate.
In addition to the above, we expected students to: • transfer abilities learned during the partnership into useful competences for everyday life. • develop their problem-solving strategies and ability to compromise. • integrate personal skills into school and project activities. • develop critical thinking. • share relevant information about their culture, in particular their lifestyle & traditions with their European partners. • promote inter-cultural education. • become tolerant towards “others” and help combat racial issues. • help promote language learning and linguistic diversity at secondary school level across Europe. • ensure the participation of pupils who are socio-economically disadvantaged or have special educational needs, they have the most need for such exchanges. • gain experience in inputting data and presenting it. we expected teachers to: • share experiences with partner schools concerning methods of teaching; • increase the teachers’ skills in English using ICT. • make the school curriculum more attractive by incorporating the project activities into it, where possible. • help turn school into a place where the pupils and the teachers live and work with pleasure.
