ETV – European Teens’ Voice

ETV – European Teens’ Voice

 

Learners in our schools not only have very low communication skills, but ignore that competences in foreign languages and ICT are among the most needed competences in the job market. So, it appears judicious to offer them challenging live language exchanges with other European pupils of their age on the one hand, and on the other hand help them acquire new ICT skills. Learners will be invited to produce e-presentations about each other’s country and give their point of view about the world around them, then meet on Skype and exchange about their productions.

 

Materie: Cross Curricular

Lingue:EN

Età dello studente:11 – 15

Strumenti da usare: Pubblicazione su Web, TwinSpace, Videconferenza

Obiettivi: Our partnership is a learners-focused project in the first place. So the major goals of our project are, on the one hand, to enhance our learners’ motivation and investment in learning foreign languages, to allow them to develop their skills related to oral communication, and thereby raise their chances for a better professional inclusion in the future. On the other hand, this project will offer our learners an opportunity to learn about other European cultures, and thus, foster their European citizenship.

 

Procedura di lavoro:

 Each partner school will gather their team, share responsibilities and examine the immediate tasks to be done, plan the integration of the project activities in the leaners’ curriculum, plan how to use class time for the implementation of the project, check if they have all the equipment to undertake the activities, check internet connection, inform the target groups about E-Twinning, present the project to them and explain clearly all scheduled activities, establish the small groups and prepare lists with who will do what concerning learners duties, establish the selection criteria for learners and inform them about it, sign parental agreements in which parents express their acceptance for their children to take part in the project activities, to be photographed and filmed so that the photos and films may be exhibited in public places and published on Internet, invite parents and motivate them to support the project, define where E-Twinning corner will be situated in the school, establish the local meeting plan.  Learners involved will learn how to use a digital camera, a video camera, a smartphone or a tablet as they will need to take pictures, shoot short videos and type interviews, how to use ICT tools to make e-presentations and short films.  Skype conferences will be organized between groups of learners every three months so as to allow them to communicate with their European counterparts and exchange about each other’s country and culture. For instance a French class will prepare a report about traditions or festivals in Poland, and a Polish class will do the same about France. Then, the two classes will exchange the e-presentations and watch them. After, they will meet on Skype and have a discussion about what they have learnt about each other. Each involved class will have a Skype conference on the same basis with a different partner every three months.  To help our learners to fully engage in the project, we will first make a preliminary assessment and rate learners’ comfort/ability level on a number of skills. Based on the results we will purposefully create groups that blend abilities and backgrounds. To ensure that learners become productive we will widely use icebreakers and team-building activities. Moreover, we will incorporate learning activities around the use of new technologies to facilitate the group work processes. Finally, we will choose assignment topics or tasks that are related to the real world, and can be connected to our learners’ lives and have them complete tasks that involve using and developing skills that they will likely use in their future professional lives. As a result, our learners will feel at ease, think differently about their personal image.
