Participants’ involvement

Our partnership mainly focuses on student participation and it intends to involve teachers, staff, parents and local communities in the different activities described in this project’s application. Student voice will be an integral part in all aspects of the project with lead learners being involved at the planning stage each year. Their ideas and views will help shape the activities that will take place throughout the year.

As for the project topic Rural Tourism students will make the Powerpoint presentations, so they will have to search the data, choose the images, write the text and upload the final product.

Students will be fully involved in the curriculum and project activities. Some of them will be asked to take on the roles of leaders in the project so to present the ideas they have learned from the others in their peer group. The staff in the project will guide these ‘leaders’ in creative and innovative approaches to the learning process using ICT and other methods.

They will also have a significant role as local guides for visitors.

Students, teachers, staff will be involved in planning and preparing the trips abroad and they will all together organize the host meeting.

As for the meetings, all the students involved in the project will participate in the one which takes place in their own school and a few will go abroad and take part in some of them.

During the mobility students and teachers will be involved in pedagogical issues, they will share their experiences taking part in the school curricular lessons and meetings. Students, staff, parents and local communities will be involved to promote and participate to the exhibitions, the fairs, the food preparation, the excursions.
