Activity proposal in E-twinning for students of the UIPEC project

The Explicative document about this activity is here : Activity proposal in E-twinning for students of the UIPEC project

a) Activity Justification

We must create with the collaboration of the students, the following materials

  • a) The Virtual Museum of European crafts.
  • b) App of the Virtual Museum of European crafts
  • c) Etwinning channel

Etwinning is perfect for working with students but Etwinning is not very attractive so we will use Etwinning for students to keep their “Work on the crafts of each country” but also they must also fill in a google forms with information about the crafts. this form will facilitate the work to create the museum and the rest of obligatory final products for our project.

b) Distribution of tasks among students

1) Creation of the group of students. Each student / group of students (This can be organized as you wish) should do a “job” on “some of the crafts of Europe.”

2) We have established the following categories of crafts that will lead to the different rooms of the virtual museum:

  • 4.1) Glass, ceramic and pottery
  • 4.2) Vegetable fibers
  • 4.3) Wood
  • 4.4) Marble, stone and plaster
  • 4.5) Metal and ironwork
  • 4.6) Fur and skin
  • 4.7) Textile
  • 4.8) Jewelery
  • 4.9) Musical instruments
  • 4.10) Others

Students should look for crafts that are made in your country for the largest possible number of “rooms” (ceramic, glass, Wood…). The idea is that each country made several of each of the “rooms”, although they can also choose from other countries that are not in the project.

It is important that you distribute to each student / group a specific type of craftsmanship. For example, some who investigate on “Ceramics”, others on “plant fibers”, etc … This will be many more works for the museum.

Each teacher can distribute them among the students and evaluate them as they wish in Spain, they are being done as a class work for a subject and it is also part of the scale to select the students who will travel.

3) To facilitate the subsequent processing of the information collected. All jobs must have the same index. We propose the following, which is what our students are following:

  • Index
  • 1) Geographic Area
  • 2) Craft characteristics
  • 3) The technique
  • 4) Used materials
  • 5) History
  • 6) YouTube Vídeos
  • 7) Gallery

c) Student Work

As work students can create Powerpoints, videos or pdf documents

I send you some of the examples that students in Spain are already doing.

I pass the links of some who have already made the students of Spain

Dissemination

Dissemination options

Please describe the dissemination and use plans of the project results.How will you disseminate the results of the project within the association, to local communities and to the wider public? What are the main target groups with whom you would like to share the results? Are there other organizations or groups that will benefit from your project? Please explain how. Our strategic dissemination plan has the following three dimensions:

1) Dissemination among the centers: Among the partners the dissemination of the results will be carried out using several ways. On the one hand, we will create working groups with the WhatsApp tool for teachers and the other with the Telegram tool for students. In them we will publish the different activities carried out within the framework of the project. Students will also use the eTwinning platform Through Twinspace students will be able to disseminate and share the activities that are done in each partner center through the live platform, using forums, chats or videoconferences. On the other hand, the partner professors pledged to upload the activities carried out to the project website (at least two entries per center and month). For this we will create a user to each center in a collaborative website.

2) Dissemination at local level: We will organize fairs and competitions on handicrafts to publicize the final products. We will invite local agents in which the media have an interest in providing coverage.
