This year was really interesting for our class 3ACEC, with 2 etwinning projects where we had the opportunity to collaborate with schools from all over Europe, from Turkey and North Macedonia to Ukraine, Croatia, Slovakia, Greece and France!
The projects we shared are the following:
“Digital for Life” and “Find yourself in science”.
DIGITAL FOR LIFE:
In this one we worked on the themes of digital learning, digital literacy, disinformation and digital equality, intending to improve our digital competences and raise our awareness on the digital world.
We started with a simple meeting, where we had to introduce ourselves and discuss about the main aims of the project itself.
In the second meeting we got together to talk about the importance of digital literacy and how technology can have an impact on people lives and education, while on the third the main topic was about the risks of technology, how people can leave a digital “footprint” on the internet and the responsibilities that come with the use of social media. In the last meeting we talked about the personal impact that this project had on the students and we got to say goodbye to each other hoping to go on sharing a new one next year. We used different web tools such as the padlet platforms and some of us got to work on a really cool, magazine-like, collection of essays about technology! We recorded some videos, took part in polls and played games.
Our collaborative magazine is still a work-in-progress but here’s a little sneak peek on what it should look like
FIND YOURSELF IN SCIENCE:
In ” Find yourself in science” we aimed to develop our ability to raise questions, make hypotheses about scientific problems, and plan and conduct investigations and most importantly enhance our abilities to work in a team, compare the results and discuss in English. We had a meeting online from school to introduce ourselves and talk about the experiments.
At first we talked about scientists from all around Europe, with each school presenting one from their country ( that you can see here!) and we even made some short videos where we described two experiments in our labs! We wish to thank out teachers Mrs Claudia Fiorentini and Mr Davide Milani who helped us in the labs. Lastly, while writing this article, we made a small poll to see how everyone felt about these two projects. Turns out that, we improved our digital and language skills; we interacted with students from different countries and we all had fun!
