Proyecto “Identity and Belonging” Intercultural experience with Barthi Public School (Delhi, India)

Docentes de Inglés: 

·        Laura Giancarlo, Escuela 9 D.E. 18 "Provincia de Misiones", 7° grado "A" y "B", Nivel Primario

ResumenThis project helped to question some aspects of our identity that seemed obvious and increased learners’ openness to diversity, a communication skill stimulated by the exchange with students from India. In their first English-speaking intercultural experience, this group with an elementary level of English was able to overcome language barriers, as well as cultural, and achieved an empowerment that will –we hope- increase confidence in their own learning. The collaborative learning approach has been most appropriate as teamwork is quite challenging for this group and the use of new IT tools has also been of great help in this sense. Ver AQUI

ResumenThis work is part of the Identity and Belonging Project, promoted by the British Council and Fundación Evolución. When implementing it, besides giving my sixth form primary students the opportunity to communicate with a school from a very distant part of the world and with a different culture, I tried to obtain all the benefits derived from Collaborative Learning. It was performed by using web tools and with my strong conviction that when learners understand the value of interculturalism they are ready to help us to build a better world where identity and diversity are both valued and fostered.

Proyecto Working on the British Council Project “Climate Change: How Can We Help?”

ResumenLast year the project proved to be a very rewarding and enriching experience in which both my students and I learnt a lot about working collaboratively, other cultures, the environment and how to take care of our planet. Each week, they worked on different tasks, creating wordmaps, leaflets and drawings. Students were keen to share their work and were amazed to see other students’ productions, such as a group of students from London singing “The 3 R’s Song” with their music teacher strumming on his guitar. We also prepared a video, a poster and a board with all the material produced. Ver AQUI

Proyecto “Caperucita Coya/Little Red Riding Hood”

ResumenCollaborative project carried out by the teachers of 3rd grade, English, the Library teacher and the ICTs assistant who, in accordance with the PEI (Our Identity), worked together using the regionalized version of the story “Caperucita Coya" and its traditional version in English “Little Red Riding Hood”. This project compared the version of Little Red Riding Hood located in the Northwest of our country and the traditional European story analyzing the differences and similarities in both cultures. The final products of the project were a photo comic created using the program “Comic Life” and a video of both versions. Ver AQUI
