EUROPEAN CONTEST: A BILINGUAL CHALLENGE

c

tick– We believe in the European dimension of education. We’re agreed to EU objectives and include them, within the activities, tasks, or challenges, we’ll carry out together.

tick

-Following our schedule of activities, we’ll increase our 10 to 14 years students, English Language Competence and its relevance in their learning process. We’ll also increase their Digital Competence not only as a way of communication among schools, but also as innovative tool for educational development of our students and teachers.

tick-Hardly work at school in both mentioned competences will ensure our children become active European citizens strengthening the link between their education and their future jobs.

a

tick-We’ve designed a teacher training course inside the project. This course’ll be focused in CLIL methods, in order to include English in every school subject. The adquired knowledges will be into our School Educational Projects. CLIL provide effective opportunities for our pupils and teachers.  The European Commission has decided the training of teachers in order to promote the teaching of non-linguistic subjects in foreign languages.

 tick– We’ve used the word “Contest” because it’s the thread of the project in which we’re going to sew all the school areas in a bilingual way. Students, from 10 to 14 years old, will propose, find and build questions and answers about these topics: “Cultural Heritage, Music, Art, Nature and landscapes, Healthy Life and Sports, Children’s literature, Historical Figures and Events, Folklore, traditions, customs and gastronomy”

tick-They’ll investigate, share and learn about its country and the other European countries. Finally they´ll participate in the contest in which they’ll show what they’ve learned and worked about. They’ll develop strong communication links with all partner schools, working together with pupils across the partnership.  We’ll communicate through a range of technologies, including e-mail links, shared blogs, e-twinning services, video conferences. All schools involved have competent ICT predispositions and this efficiency will support ease and frequency of communication.

-We’ll produce final products like a Digital Board Game for our students to play. This game will include the eight topics above mentioned, in which there’ll be a number of questions or challenges, the same for each country. Children’ll have to investigate and answer the challenges and after works they’ll share every answer to include them in our Digital Board Game. At the end of the project, they’ll participate in a Final Contest and should know a lot about each partner country.

tick-This project’ll be a “Challenge” for us because we’re committed to:  1.- Develop greater understanding and respect between pupils, staff and parents, creating  a deep impact, not only, in the partnership schools, but also in their environment, institutions and collaborators. 2.- Develop basic skills in our students to improve Key Competences.
