Through the work of the partnership – 9 members coming from different European countries - it focuses on the development of new Educational tools and new forms of Training, combining the use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and the need to explore in its complexity the developing concept of European Identity.
Digital media have an important role both in everyday life and in Culture and therefore a role to play in Education and Training, offering the opportunity to learn within both informal and formal approach and responding to the needs to improve and update an educational system in a Europe living a great generational change.
The project seeks to develop a pedagogical approach for Key/Transversal Competences acquisition, which is based on the use of media production and specifically on the production of Audio-visual Documentaries. By creating the methodological basis for this technical product, the project translates a specific technical process, into a learning tool.
Moreover, in order to satisfy the need to study the changing perception of European Identity at its various socio-geographical levels, the main theme underlining the project is “Imagining Europe in 2111”. The different partners will apply these principles within the boundaries of their respective countries and will exchange information and know-how in order to draw a comprehensive outline of the evolving European consciousness, projected into the future.
The objectives are:
- To develop a new pedagogical tool applicable to different target groups and, what is more important, to both informal and formal learning contexts. The “Video-Doc Making” becomes a new learning model, through which the project develops an educational method designed to promote growth and enhancement of the person. Referring to social constructivism, the product must work as a cultural heritage. Each step of the process allows to acquire knowledge and to live constructive experiences.
- To promote key competences acquisition, both for the partners and the target groups: each of the necessary steps for the Audiovisual product corresponds to a specific competence area. Besides, the complementary nature of the Partnership is functional to the development of a shared activity based on the exchange of information and know-how.
- That applies also to the promotion of a new didactic path: the sharing of knowledge is the foundation of the model promoted by the project. Not a traditional vertical approach to teaching but a network environment breeding on the exchange.
- Accordingly, the partners will provide training to different target groups in order to promote both ICT use and Key and Transversal competence acquisition throughout the whole lifelong learning domains.
