A.C. Project description The main topic:The Goal of our Learning Partnership “Discovering Europe through Language and Culture using ICT” is to develop new ways/tools to help adult learners achieve the intercultural competences, which are needed in fast-changing society – to adapt to the requirements the European Labour Market and the requirements for the individual person living in a globalized world with diversity and complexity. This includes flexibility and mobility and having the knowledge about travelling kenyancupid-app, different viewpoints and customs in different cultures as well as a common second language. Teaching and learning basic ICT in English is just one of the few steps in our common project. Developing creative and innovative skills as flexibility and mobility using both common web environments for the learners to comment the same piece of art will lead to the sense on toleration and understanding between different cultures, which are the basics for communicating with different countries and to meet theses partners.
By participating in the contact seminar in Cyprus we have experienced how much easier it is to keep up the motivation and enthusiasm when you have met your partner face to face. Knowing the partners you continue the communication, which you have started – developing consciousness about similarities and differences, achieving a real understanding between different European cultures. Therefore the project includes physical meetings face to face as well as “meetings”, communication and cooperation using ICT. Outputs – results/products:One of the results will be a common web page, which will stay reachable to adult education providing institutions after the project is finished. This web page will be equipped with different essays, collages, and number different learning materials as well as rectified introductions about each participating country and its culture.
In result of these actions the English language is strengthened as well as the knowledge of using ICT. Knowing the partners you continue the communication, which you have started – developing consciousness about similarities and differences, achieving a real understanding between different European cultures. Through the combination of action and reflection it empowers students to take responsibility for their own learning. To qualify the process of reflection there will be cooperation with a group of evaluators from teachers’ education in Cyprus and officials from Portugal. The results and process will be disseminated in leaflet and CD and web based as mentioned 5. Impact:Everything uploaded to this web page can be used as extra learning material educating learners and adult learners. Experiential learning is a process in which educators purposefully engage with learners through a variety of experiential methodologies in direct experience and focused reflection in order to increase knowledge and develop skills and clarify values.
The idea is that the models will take into account cultural diversity and the competences achieved will be applicable in a wide range of context – in adult education, formal as well as informal, in daily life situations, for the individual and for all kind of groups where various people must do something together, work together, learn something together etc. Through the combination of action and reflection it empowers students to take responsibility for their own learning. To qualify the process of reflection there will be cooperation with a group of evaluators from teachers’ education in Cyprus and officials from Portugal.
