Class activities – Developing citizenship in an eTwinning context

Marta Hunya and Bettina Zeidler

Marta Hunya and Bettina Zeidler

Intercultural understanding is a very important topic for teachers all over Europe – and all over the world. Marta Hunya and Bettina Zeidler, who both used to work as pedagogical advisors for eTwinning, use their workshop to offer inspiration and ideas to teachers who would like to include an approach to intercultural understanding in their eTwinning projects – with the intention to guide their students towards a feeling of european citizenship.

But what does european citizenship mean exactly? Probably it means something else for everyone of us. So we need to discuss, to find common grounds to start from. We all have different backgrounds, different cultural roots that shape our opinions and views in ways that often are not obvious.

To illustrate this, the idea of culture as an Iceberg with a small visible and a big invisible part serves well: when we meet someone, we know only very few things about their culture, maybe we know popular food from the region the person comes from or we can understand the language they speak. But we can’t see the “part below the surface”, the attitudes, emotions and values, the roots of the culture. Intercultural understanding doesn’t have the intention of getting the whole iceberg out of the water and in plain sight – but to make a bigger part of it visible, understandable.
More about the iceberg model.

In a second group work we then talked about values we think are important and in the groups agreed on the most important ones we share. Of course this is only the beginning: there’s still the question of what, for example, respect means to someone from Cyprus and someone from Norway, or what reliability means in Portugal or Romania – or for any given individual! Respect, tolerance, cooperation, honesty, trust – we need to negotiate the meanings to get closer to understanding each other.
It’s clear that discussing about values, their counterparts and their meaning with pupils can be very fruitful, but it definitely is a challenge.

An interesting way to include these discussion into eTwinning projects is to find a topic where values play an important role. History can be a starting point: seeing historical events from different perspectives, learning about controversial persons and the values they appreciated, discuss their intentions and goals, find out why they acted the way they did.

The teachers’ role in this is to be moderators and facilitators, to guide the pupils and help them express their own opinions. Detailed observation, sharing experiences and impressions can be a starting point, role plays can help exploring different perspectives.

A very inspiring and interesting workshop! A starting point for thoughts about the term european citizenship and its meaning for education.

Teaching European Citizenship Project & eTwinning Kits

This workshop was run by Beate Vollmer, a secondary school teacher of English and Philosophy. During the introduction, Beate explained with visual PowerPoint slides how the project was planned and shaped by the students, which were aged 12-18 year olds. Two years of project work we subdivided into 3 project kits, aimed at 10-13, 14-16 and 17-21 year old students. After a very interesting introduction, the participants were divided into groups of 4/5  – by working with partners on the ideas that had been presented and on how to turn these ideas into practice for the pupils.  This was an interesting activity for secondary age teaching, unfortunately there was no catering for primary school age planning in this session.

The feedback from the  different groups was very interesting, with different ideas relating to the subject of European Citizenship and how to use eTwinning and various ICT tools / video.

The crucial aim was for a project with sustainability by creating a community of responsible European Citizens working for a democratic and peaceful world, and at the same time give students a boost of self confidence, encouraging artistic expression and developing intercultural understanding through eTwinning.

A very well thought out session, delivered professionally. Well done, Beate!!

Good discussion = candy bar!;) Starts lovely.
A lot of people wanted to join but the training room got full with a blink of an eye.
Candies were most appreciated.;)
Turning off the lights may appear to be a serious problem when tradition meets new modern functionality.

Programs and what we can do with them in eTwinning?

Pictures: Microsoft autocollage, Photosynth, Sumo paint

Interesting how you can make panorama pictures and a sheep of popcorn and useless IKEA tools…

What about a comic book?

No problem! There are many free easy-to-use programs available.

Comic Master

Feel like animation?

Dvolver

Community clips

A good discussion is much appreciated. Tools look fantastic but will children be able to learn them quickly enough to use them? Some of us seemed to have turned Tool pro in some respects. We had some brave chaps in the audience who presented their own productions too.

We were instructed how to produce and use raster pictures.

Rasterbator

It’s very easy to use 2.0 tools to make a mixture of information and pictures to make it digestable.

Last but not least…

If you feel like creating a magazine cover or a film poster, you’ll probably love BighugeLab which offers a wide range of accessible tools. And…

Flockdraw  for those who need a picture/drawing made simultaneously by children from all collaborating countries.

It was definitely worth it!

Inspiring keynote speech on Learning Citizenship

Professor R. H. Fryer´s keynote address on learning citizenship for the 21st century was inspiring, both within in an eTwinning context and in a wider scope.

IMG_8391The future is not only here for the taking – it is here for the making”
Professor Fryer talked about risk society – the fact that the world we live in today is unpredictable and if you will scary – and what this sort of world demands of its citizens and of teaching and learning. Fryer stressed that in an uncertain world citizenship is not only about coping with or responding to the situation. It is about active engagement and about shaping the world. Therefor the real issue for eTwinning according to Fryer, is how do we make students the authors of society they live in today.

”Diversity can lead to a higher level of cohesion”
Fryer also talked about social movements, the voices these movements have given groups that have not had a voice before ¬- and the diversity that this results in.  Fryer stressed that peoples’ attitude to “other”, the way we look at “other”, is of importance. He talked about the notion that diversity actually can lead to cohesion; that coming in contact with other ways of thinking, other sets of priorities and other ways of doing things actually can lead to a higher level of social cohesion.

Giving the pupils a sense of themselves in a social world”
What kind of teachers does this new world of risk need? Professor Fryer left this question for the conference audience to think about.

Concerning the role of the teacher, Fryer emphasized the teacher as someone who draws out the potential in others. He also stressed the importance of giving the pupils a sense of themselves in a social world.

Quality in an eTwinning workshop

A full to bursting room to hear about quality in eTwinning projects.
Workshop in three parts: planning before, during the project and after.
Elizabeth states that preparation is everything. Define a projet that meets all project partners’ needs and define a calendar.
What are the students good at doing- have you asked your pupils what they want to do? Are they involved at the planning stage?
One teacher says the students can be very demanding! Another teacher gets the children to find their own partner school. A third teacher suggests not necessarily at that level but they should feel involved- it is their project.
Using student’s skills, whatever they are, is seen as empowering for students and utilising these skills- the diplomat, the ICT whizz, the language specialists- this is great practice for 21st century workplace skills preparation.
Other snippets of good practice at the planning stage:
Good communication
Clear, attainable goals,
Calendar,
Collaborative planning.
A short video conference for 15 mins to get to know your partner can solidify the project relationship – or not!

What is collaboration?
You need to share your work and build in some interaction, a quiz, or something for the partner to do with the exchange.
This was you will avoid the “so what?” response.

Welcome Address

Androulla Vassiliou, the European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Multilingualism, Sport, Media and Youth could unfortunately not be personally present at the conference, but sent a video greeting to the participants. In her welcome address she acknowledged the willingness of teachers to learn with and from each other. Furthermore, she cordially thanked all the teachers who make eTwinning happen for their contribution to its great success. While eTwinning helps young people to find their European identity and to broaden their horizon, it still has enormous potential for the upcoming European programme period from 2014 to 2020. In her concluding words she pointed out an expanded role for eTwinning in Europe on a new platform. Sounds exciting, doesnt’ it?

João Casanova, Deputy Minister for Education and Science of Portugal

João Casanova, Deputy Minister for Education and Science of Portugal

Afterwards, the Deputy Minister for Education and Science of Portugal, João Casanova, warmly welcomed the guests from all over Europe. What is eTwinning? eTwinning is the largest learning community in Europe. It brings best practices of the use of ICT in our schools. In Portugal, 1.800 schools and 4.000 teachers are involved in eTwinning, sharing ideas and communicating with schools across Europe. A large number of Portuguese teachers use ICT in their classes. Due to modernisation in the past years, the technical facilities in schools have improved remarkably (almost one computer per student!). João Casanova stressed the importance of the topic of this conference – Citizenship and School Collaboration – as citizenship means commitment for active participation in society. Teachers, amongst others, have a responsibility for students being active citizens of tomorrow. eTwinning with its variety of possibilities has a lot to offer for students to become fully aware citizens of Europe. In this respect, he wished a fruitful conference to all participants.

The audience could then experience “citizenship in action”: Portuguese students from the Michael Giacometti School gave a fabulous impression of their percussion show with simple music instruments like tin cans and wooden sticks. Their stirring rhythm and enthusiasm literally spread to the public!

Prize award ceremony

Prize award ceremony is always the most important and interesting part of the first day eTwinning European Conference. The high quality projects and their coordinators from the whole Europe are awarded in different categories. The winning projects are excelent examples of European cooperation, diversity, creativity, involvement of pupils and use of eTwinning and other ICT tools.

The ceremony began by awarding of the special prize categories. Project called “Dans le cercle des signes du zodiaque” has received the French language prize. The Spanisch language prize then has received project “I tell you, you tell me a tale/Te cuento, me cuentas un cuento”. This project was awarded especially thanks to its colaborative adaptation of traditional tales. Next in turn was the science prize category Marie Sklodowska – Curie. In this category was the most successful project “Fly me to the Moon”. This year was for the first time awarded the German language prize in which won the project DIREKT AUS. Winner of the prize English as a second language in early years education is the P.A.L.E – Play And Learn English –interactive, motivating and fun. Mevlana Prize for Intercultural Understanding is sponsored by Turkish NSS and it is ispired by the Muslim saint and Anatolian mystic from 13th century. Intercultural Dialogue Through fairy tales, drama and art with 37 partners from 28 countries received this new prize and it was very nice to see the most of the project partners on the stage to take their award. Next special Recognition Award which was given by Anne Gilleran from CSS received the project Schoolovision. This project lasts since 2009 and is inspired by Eurovision Contest. Within this project are among others involved countries eTwinning plus countries. The number of all project partners was 41. In the age categories 6 runners up and winners were awarded for their outstanding creativity and international collaboration. These prizes were given by Mr. Antonio Silva Mendes, Director of Lifelong Learning policies and programme at the European Commission. The overall winner of eTwinning prizes 2013 is the project “The rainbow village” including 8 partners from 8 countries (France, Greece, Romania, United Kingdom, Turkey, Italy, Slovakia, Poland). CONGRATULATIONS!!! One of the coordinator during her speech invited all conference participants to their village. How to do it? It is easy, just close your eyes and you can be there by one click of the eye.

Press Release: eTwinning Conference 2013 awards success, spotlight on Citizenship and European School Collaboration

More than 500 teachers from across Europe will discuss the impact eTwinning has through school collaboration on citizenship at the annual eTwinning Conference on 14 – 16 March 2013 in Lisbon, Portugal.

This year the eTwinning Conference celebrates the theme “Citizenship and European School Collaboration”, and Professor R.H. (Bob) Fryer CBE, Chair of the Campaign for Learning UK, takes the floor to introduce various facets of citizenship, belonging and continuous training, making the link between eTwinning, extensive engagement in lifelong learning and enriched citizenship.

 In this European Year of Citizens, it is important to emphasize how participation in eTwinning and other forms of cross-border school cooperation help young people to develop a sense of pride in their local, national and European identities, to broaden their Androulla Vassiliouhorizons and to become active citizens of Europe – and of the world”, says Androulla Vassiliou, European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth. Commissioner Vassiliou continues on the future of eTwinning: “eTwinning is here to stay. It has still an enormous potential to unfold and it has a bright future in the context of Erasmus for All, the new programme for education, training and youth for the period 2014-2020. From next school year, you will start noticing an expanded role for eTwinning with a stronger platform, new actors and more services on offer.”

The work of the conference will concentrate on sharing good practice, exploring new ways of teaching and fostering the eTwinning community, through workshops, interactive session and informal meetings. The conference will be also an occasion to celebrate outstanding achievements in school collaboration in eTwinning. The winners of the eTwinning Prizes 2013 will be awarded in 3 main categories based on the age range of pupils. These main prizes are sponsored by the European Commission. In addition there are 6 special category prizes, for example for projects using various European languages, projects focussing on cultural understanding, and projects in maths and science, sponsored by various organisations.

Now in its eighth year, the European Commission’s eTwinning action involves almost 200 000 registered teachers in 33 countries, who communicate, work together, and set-up cross-border educational projects. eTwinning has affirmed its important role in shaping a European space for education, helping teachers connect, collaborate and share and, ultimately, feel and be part of the biggest learning community in Europe.

Find out more on www.etwinning.net.

“At the end of my first project, when summing up the results and my pupils’ feedback, I started to think that eTwinning could be more than an extra project and could be fully incorporated into teaching. eTwinning is the most flexible tool of my teaching that allows my pupils and me to learn, improve, have fun and make friends.” Maria Doria, Italy

“Our school had never been in any international project before. When our School Management saw our eTwinning projects, they brought a PC and a projector to the classroom and support us in many ways. Some of my colleagues joined eTwinning too. Suddenly Europe became very close to us.” Ayca Oğuz, Turkey

European Schoolnet is a network of 30 Ministries of Education from across the European member states, leading educational innovation at European level.
