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 activities developed basic and transversal skills using an innovative method with educational added value, the Web Radio Portal. Through the C4 activities both teachers and students were encouraged to better understand the world in which they live, realizing the complexity and the systemic nature of both sustainable development and environmental issues. Also, teachers and students were invited to acquire significant experiences and skills, involved in activities that help to shape attitudes and behaviours, embracing values that relate to the individual and collective responsibility in addressing the degradation of the environment and quality of life. In addition to the above, we expected students to: • 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.
