Summary

The project aims to establish an attractive and modern Web Radio with Portal which will facilitate the cooperation of schools across Europe making learning more challenging and promoting Radio and other cultural products. The direct target groups are school students, primary and secondary education – from public and private schools, and their educators. The Web Radio will provide the necessary tools and skills in order to successfully incorporate web-based radio activities into their educational settings in an innovative way. It will use English as the main language as well partners' language for the audio productions; but the user interface, guides and other material will be translated in 4 different languages. The radio production is addressed to students without discriminations, while no strict assessment within the project is required; this explains the reason why it will be a successful method to motivate all students to learn. Disadvantaged students -even early leavers- will find this very attractive and alluring. Taking into consideration that the radio as a medium helps disabled students to express themselves and socialize, the Web Radio Portal will be designed more friendly for such target groups; for example students with visual disabilities will be given the chance to communicate via the platform with peers and they will find an new way to learn in a very exciting and new way. The Web Portal will provide a robust and safe online platform for web-based schools radio productions, giving them an educational-oriented approach, in subjects such as maths, science, languages, history, literature, journalism and also enables various literacies such as media, information and also critical thinking; enhancing in this way the digital integration in learning and training. Copyright and ethical issues have been considered.Concerning the actual project, in the project selection process of partners, the coordinator has made the best possible choice given for the success of the project. It has considered their complementary roles, based on their experience and history track of achievements and of their proven specific capacities to make the project happen in a harmonious way. The consortium comprises of partner who are are competent in education overall, in researching, teaching, aware of the technical/technologies involved, and in management and communication skills. As the consortium represents partners from a wide geographical spread of EU member states Greece, Italy, Denmark, Lithuania, Cyprus) it brings together a range of communities of practices from across Europe, promoting European research synergies and knowledge transfer. In the design phase, the project has split the activities and other outputs in a logical continuum, with phases and milestones making many intermediate results that are usefull for the next steps; also, shared assigned tasks among partners keeping in mind their best abilities.In the implementation, a “create-evaluate-reproduce/recreate” approach has been applied. The necessary monitoring, evaluation and quality control procedures have been considered to make this project real and to meet its aims and objectives. The main results of the projects are, a Web Radio Portal, a Web Radio for European schools, Educational Scenarios on making audio products for the Radio in various levels (primary, secondary), Studies and Guides on how to do and how to use and apply. The educational material is put on the web portal and serve the role of a learning community where educators and students learn not only with prepared by the consortium learning material, but more importantly, from each other. The latter but also professionals, will have the chance to get more on media and digital literacy. This is cultivated through online collaboration, exchange of experiences on the implementation of radio shows, and good practices.The impact of the project is of paramount importance for the project. The fact that the target groups will come from at least five European countries of different socioeconomic characteristics, cultural backgrounds and educational systems, is expected to result in project outcomes of broader European impact, relevance, applicability and added value. More, NEStOR will encourage research and evaluation to identify what works, by collecting and sharing effective best practices in national and European level. The project will have impact at the local, regional and national level, by creating synergies and cooperation, and exchanging experiences through the Web Radio portal developed and enhanced with social networking characteristics. Dissemination of the results and sustainability of the Web Radio, at European level is considered strongly. NEStOR will further promote the transnational cooperation and exchange of best practices, while in parallel will strengthen the skills of students at the area of audio/radio productions and journalism.
