Workshops and Projects
Our topic "From Papyrus to Stonepaper and Beyond - the Questions Behind" was created during our last Erasmus+ Project, where we got to know stonepaper and a first impression of "Blue Economy" - a different, ecological and environmental view on economy . We thought it worth to explore that in a new project.
To structure our vast ideas about it we formulated the "Five Pillars of Wisdom" - The History of Paper - Culture and Art - Ecology and Recycling - Economy and Stonepaper - Electronic Future.
This structure gives each school the opportunity to work on the project in their own pace and as their system, their surrounding and resources allow them. But in the end we will have a lot of wonderful results we can share.
One of the most important things in these Erasmus+ Projects are the mobilities.
As we are a big group of 9 unfortunately we have to share 100 possible mobilities. In comparison to the last project we had to cut the numbers of workshops in different countries to meet other children and teachers for learning and teaching activities. We tried to make the best of it: Each country either hosts a workshop with children or a Transnational Meeting.
Workshops are in Cantù/ Italy - Parla / Spain - Izmir /Turkey - Berlin / Germany - Maarja Magdalena/ Estonia. Transnational Meetings are in Athens / Greece - Noordwijk / Holland - Edinburgh / Scotland - Barlinek / Poland.
There is a lot of work going on in each school besides the meetings - small and big projects like the making of paper, a common activity concerning the boat people on the Mediterranian Sea, Art and Theatre and reflecting on modern electronic devices.
We publish the results on this website and invite you to comment on them.
Our main outcome will also be a handbook with examples from all schools teaching a foreign language with the "Storyline" method and also the planning tool " Teaching by Design". We hope that this will improve our teaching and have an impact on our school development.
We will have 5 workshops in different countries where the students will explore topics on paper together. The workshops are planned to have publicly shown results like exhibitions.
You will also find bigger projects of the schools which are special and extraordinary.
