ONAIR: "Let's Discover What's Behind News"- Pedagogical Kit

ActiveWatch publishes a new educational product aimed at secondary school pupils to better understand news production and to learn how to question and verify credibility of information in the media.

The pedagogical kit was developed within the ONAIR European project for media education, an initiative of the Sapienza University in Rome, and it benefits of the support of the Romanian Ministry of Education, Research, Youth and Sports.

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning is a blog providing users, students, teachers, leaders and managers of educational ICT with articles and tools to better integrate technology into education. Practical tools, ideas and tips come along with a selection of interesting readings on the subject, tutorials and guides. An entire section of this blog is also dedicated to articles covering reviews of free educational mobile apps that work on smart devices.

Traditions across Europe

Traditions Across Europe is a project within the eTwinning community (http://www.etwinning.net/en/pub/index.htm), which is an EU programme that enables and encourages European schools to collaborate using ICT. Traditions Across Europe is based on an information exchange amongst 22 European schools about particular aspects, activities and traditions of the school's own country, a blog was set up by the schools to support this exchange. There, the 10 to 11 year old pupils of the Istituto Comprensivo "Don Bosco"- Francavilla in Sinni" (PZ) in Italy shared what they experienced and made at school as they learned about their own origins, history and traditions. Through the project's blog, and with the help of their two teachers Gina Antonietta Mango and Carmelo Mario Martino, the Italian pupils could communicate and exchange materials about their countries' traditions.

The children were engaged in the search and discovery of local traditions: songs, typical recipes, festivities, games and particular activities (wine-making, cider-making, olive oil extraction). It was a whole experience for the pupils, as they were confronted with the materials the other schools published on the blog and as they got to know more about the local, national and European culture. The most innovative and creative elements of the project were the confrontations that occured with foreign pupils and teachers, the analysis of authentic materials such as traditional objects, instruments, places, photographs, texts… and of course the usage of ICT to search and communicate, the realization and the usage of the Blog (http://traditionsacrosseurope.wordpress.com) and the usage of eTwinning twinspace (http://twinspace.etwinning.net/launcher.cfm?lang=en&ca=traditionsacrosse...).

There is the initiative's page on the eTwinning twinspace: http://my.twinspace.etwinning.net/traditionsacrosseurope.
The articles made by this Italian school are listed here:

Traditions Across Europe è un progetto nell'ambito della comunità eTwinning (http://www.etwinning.net/en/pub/index.htm), un programma comunitario che consente e incoraggia le scuole europee a collaborare con le TIC. Traditions Across Europe è basato sullo scambio di informazioni tra 22 scuole europee su aspetti specifici, attività e tradizioni del Paese della scuola, un blog è stato istituito dalle scuole a supporto di tale scambio. Lì, gli alunni di 10-11 anni di età dell'Istituto Comprensivo "Don Bosco" - Francavilla in Sinni "(PZ) in Italia hanno condiviso ciò che hanno sperimentato e fatto a scuola mentre imparavano a conoscere le proprie origini, la storia e le tradizioni. Attraverso il blog del progetto e con l'aiuto dei loro due insegnanti Gina Antonietta Mango e Carmelo Mario Martino, gli studenti italiani hanno potuto comunicare e scambiare materiali sulle tradizioni dei loro paesi.
I bambini sono stati impegnati nella ricerca e scoperta delle tradizioni locali: canzoni, ricette tipiche, feste, giochi e attività particolari (vinificazione, sidro, estrazione di olio d'oliva). È stata un'esperienza completa per gli alunni, dato che si sono confrontati con i materiali delle altre scuole pubblicati sul blog e dato che hanno avuto modo di conoscere meglio la cultura locale, nazionale ed europea. Gli elementi più innovativi e creativi del progetto sono stati gli scontri che si sono verificati con alunni e docenti stranieri, l'analisi di materiali autentici, come oggetti della tradizione, strumenti, luoghi, fotografie, testi ... e, naturalmente, l'uso delle TIC per cercare e comunicare, la realizzazione e l'utilizzo del Blog (http://traditionsacrosseurope.wordpress.com) e l'utilizzo di TwinSpace eTwinning (http://twinspace.etwinning.net/launcher.cfm?lang=en&ca=traditionsacrosse ...)
C'è la pagina dell'iniziativa su TwinSpace eTwinning: http://my.twinspace.etwinning.net/traditionsacrosseurope
Gli articoli realizzati da questa scuola italiana sono elencati qui:
