MOBILITA' PREVISTE N. 17

Living in a society that is continually changing, we are in the position of facing difficult situations when it comes to mixing different people and different cultures. Nowadays society has to adapt and learn how to live in harmony.Unfortunately, most people lack empathy and understanding towards different cultures/people/beliefs. Six countries will be involved in this partnership namely: Romania, Spain, FYROM, Croatia, Italy and Cyprus. They are from that part of Europe where the migration phenomenon is present.

G.O.

- to promote the cultural values that encourage the cooperation between the students from different countries in order to improve the general attitude in what concerns social inclusion, diversity, gender equality and non-discrimination in order to lower the 

level of non-tolerant attitude by 15%.

O4.for teachers to learn how to adapt the teaching materials and work with individuals, and not only groups of students, according to their needs;

O5.to increase our students' motivation to learn and use foreign languages and ICT;

 

Our objectives derive from the horizontal priorities of the ERASMUS+ Programme Guide which refer to inclusion, diversity, equality, gender equality, nondiscrimination in the field of education and not only.

The participants will work on the following activities and obtain the next results:

The tasks and responsibilities were assigned according to the possibilities and experience of each school.The tasks were equally distributed.There will be a yahoogroup as a private tool for teachers to organize the activities and a Facebook group for all the participants to communicate and upload pictures.  

All the partner schools will carry on all the activities mentioned above and the results will be uploaded on the website.At the end of each work meeting, the teachers will discuss about the progress of activities and meeting the deadlines. 

 

The impact of the project will be measured by questionnaires, which will show the influence of the project activities on the students who were identified as non-tolerant and we expect that the level of non-tolerant attitude to decrease by at least 15%.

The participants will: improve their language proficiency, develop a sense of European citizenship education in respect and tolerance for others, how much they have in common with the rest of Europe, Improve ICT skills, team work skills and attitudes, have great interest in promoting the process of building a Europe of the young, improve their inter cultural competence which will guide them to the appreciation of different cultural backgrounds.

The eTwinning projects will give the project an European dimension and continue the topic of LIFE project to other countries for a better awareness of students in what concerns the change of nowadays society and the need to adapt to a new Europe with it social challenges.
