FULL DESCRIPTION OF TRAINING CONTENTS
IN THE LANGUAGE OF THE TRAINING: (EN)
Blog site realization in which everybody will be allowed to access to all preparation documents of the course. Participants will insert their multimedia presentations to get to know and compare each other on the different items of the course. Every information will be uploaded in the blog site.
The aim of the course is to offer teaching innovative and creative tools to spread and share to the communities. Another point is the one to let everyone know about the myths of Europe, to let this continent be proposed as advantaged place for cultural exchanges. The myth of Europe, feminine figure from which the West lands took their name, reminds us that people have always transmigrate and that those migrations took important cultural and social innovations. In the last few years we saw a migratory process that mixed the boards of the territories, but we haven’t seen yet a European cultural identity taking form, with his several declinations in the geo-politic space to get to the “cultural citizenship” to let the recent community history belong to the heritage of the relationships – European, and half-European ones - that, overall in the Mediterranean area, are tightly interwoven. In a world crossed by several migrations, often in Europe’s direction, as in the past for other continents, the European myth gains a bigger importance. Europe is a traveller who is not afraid to live all behind and move to East and West, to discover new worlds and bring his contribute concerning the culture. Participants will create, as final product of the course, a real “wunderkammer”, a virtual “room of wonders”, through a fascinating travel between a common cultural heritage of the European people. Literature, visual arts and sciences, in fact, could interpret and transmit a set of principles shared from all around the Europe and overall, from Rome to Athens.
The increasing utilization of the qualitative research and research-action in science and instruction has renewed the teaching and formation methodologies. This project justifies the use of this neologism: research-action-interaction-training. The research is about knowledge progression and provides the use of methodological tools as the mythological, iconographic, artistic and literary interpretation of the Myth of Europe, through the systematic collection and analysis of data and works. The action-innovation brings to a renovation of the educational and training practices with the aim to offer to the participants innovative and interdisciplinary approaches that link lectures with non formal activities, stimulating participation and creativity in these new didactic paths. The training part creates a place to reflect in a huge, systematic action line, where participants will contribute actively to the creation of new educational practices, using multimedia and interactive techniques.
The course follow-up will offer these following activities and will allow participants to:
- Elaborate, during the course, projects about the European cultural heritage (mythological, iconographic, artistic, literary, historical, scientific), to, then, supplement to the daily educational activities.
- Use and create innovative training instruments (e-book, multimedia products, videos)
- Interact with the represented institutions, through a specific web portal.
- Exchange opinions, good work practices and sharing the project results, everything possible with the creation of a special section in the website www…… that will collect every work realized during and after the course, accompanied with educational boards, technical texts and tutorials.
- Meet in a virtual place with the aim to develop new European projects as:Comenius, Grundtvig, Leonardo and Study Visit.
