the focus

Students, through the knowledge of different life styles, different schools, different environmental contexts of their peers, become aware of the European dimension, as real opportunity at relational, occupational and training level.

For teachers, the biggest impact will be the acquisition of different teaching methodologies and professional maturity obtained by contrastive analysis of different types of school system.
The expected results are the creation of a website with the publication of the works, brochures about the subject matter and other material that can be used in the course of lectures to be held in each school.

Students will develop artistic and cultural knowledge about other Nations, but above all they will know other social contexts, most of them strangers.

The project experience will encourage the internationalization of the school by: redefining teaching methods, using of the English language as a tool to facilitate the access to the labour market, testing of continuous exchange of know-how with other European institutes, creation of a figure of coordination within the educational institution.

Longer term benefits are the experiences gained by the students about knowledge of other social contexts that will represent a resource, useful to them during their lifetime.

Teachers, will put within their own schools different methodologies improving their didactic strategies and procedures
