The project week in Coin included activities and workshops in which the students developed and improved their digital and intercultural working skills.
The school organized ice-breaki ng activities, sports games, cultural and urban city games and field trips for the students to create a comfortable English speaking atmosphere so that the students became
comfortable when working in cross-cultural groups.Two field trips where organized (Granada+Alhambra, Malaga) to experience pieces of world heritage, art and monuments. The students were put into intercultural study groups and were given the task to collect valid digital material (e.g. pictures, videos and audios) for the follow-up activities. The workshops were the centre of the project’s week. Guest students were trained by host students and host teachers to confidently use tools for online publishing (such as wordpress). Using online tools is part of the host school’s curriculum which is why the activities fit in nicely into the students’school life. Every study_group created an individual webpage that was f)resented in front of teachers, students and parents.
During this project week the students acquired digital skills such as:
• webpage creation and editing
• photo and text editing
• usingtheir knowledge about internet safety and copyright
FurtherMore, they did so in an intercultural environment as:
• they constantly workedin mixed intercultural groups
• they used English as a lingua franca for communication and working as well as their final products.
During their presentation of their products the students were also prepared to explain how they create their webpage. Doing so,the students are enabled to return to their home countries and spread their knowledge
in their classes. In summary, the project’s week in Spain helped them to acquire digital learning skills that will be useful in their future school and job career.
