So Far, So Near, an attractive kind of communication

2010  |  

Title: So Far, So Near

Educational stage: Compulsory Secondary Education

Subject: Foreign languages (English)

The fabulous level of communication established between the Polish and Navarran teachers involved in this project has achieved varied and very attractive results. The initial objective behind achieving real practice of the foreign language, together with the use of various ICT tools, has been successfully reached.


The activities proposed in this project are not really different from what is usually done in English lessons, but the methodology is different indeed. Thus, topics like Christmas, music, food, cinema, themselves, etc., have managed to establish real communication between partners. Students have reflected upon themselves, but also about the features provided by the different ICT tools, and so they have managed to work with their European partners in a more attractive way. As a result of the students' high levels of motivation towards this project, they have proposed new collaborative tasks with their partners, as well as the creation of a mini-dictionary.

One of the most interesting activities is the photography contest, thanks to which they have shared their culture. The quality of the materials shown in this contest is close to professional levels.

With the following presentation you can expand information about this project, as told by the students:
