Projet "Comenius Regio"
Objectif du partenariat
1. Provide opportunities to develop social and cultural awareness by developing an understanding & practice of citizenship
All partners have shared the culture and language of each other’s country. A collective reflection has been carried on with the children in primary schools on the way of being a good citizen, leading to a code of conduct including social and environment dimensions. The mobility visits and the relation between the partners and the children enabled them to share the way of life and culture of both countries, and to open their minds. It provided children with opportunities to become more aware of themselves as citizens of a city of a country and of Europe.
2. Explore, develop & enhance the economic influences on home & social life
Through the project, children have developed their willingness to learn languages and understand a foreign culture. It has contributed to their understanding of a world growing more and more global, requiring the ability of having an international culture. It should help them to feel safe knowing they could be in contact with another culture and countries in their future job. The project offered them a valuable insight into the cost of the conducted activities, and the cost of business and leisure activities. The understanding of each other’s country and way of life highlighted the differences between home and social life in both countries.
3. Provide opportunities for all the children to raise their self-esteem and life aspirations
The children have been able to carry on projects. They understood that leading a project from the start to the end is a challenge. They acquired skills to organize tasks, the relation with others, in a team, to discuss and argue their choice and to give their opinions. They realized they had some of the required competences and qualities but had to develop some more. Moreover, their works have been shown to a wider audience than usual (school, outside school and abroad via the partners). It raised their confidence, increased their self-esteem, made them proud of themselves individually and collectively. The project also induced them to expect more from life, to be more ambitious, to be players of their own life.
4. To explore the motivating factors of acquiring another/additional language
The persons involved in the project have raised their aspirations, in term of practice for teachers, in term of future social and work life for children. For teachers, the different new practices implemented in schools through another language are motivating, give them the opportunity to develop and improve their own educational practices. Regarding children, it increases their interest; broaden their cultural awareness of themselves and others. They comprehend the meaningful purpose of learning a new language, and have a better understanding of culture which will allow them to challenge social and cultural stereotypes.
5. To create environments that promote entrepreneurial opportunities/activities linked with democratic process
The experiments of the project have involved a participative process including expression, listening, respect and consideration of others. The activities encouraged to work in groups, to share ideas, take responsibilities, in cooperation, beyond their self-interests. It has been a common project, shared by the pupils, but also involved the adults who had to work together to prepare the workshops and to realize the activities.
