Project Description

The traditional activity of artisans and artisans is part of that valuable European cultural heritage that we have to protect, promote and contribute to their future survival.

Handicrafts are an important source of job creation in Europe, but many of those professions are at risk of being lost. With our project we want, on the one hand, to help conserve and disseminate this ancestral knowledge about these artisan crafts, especially those that are in danger of disappearing. And, on the other, increase the employability of young people from the creation of start-up linked to the application to these trades of virtual reality and 3D printing.

We intend to contribute to new generations detecting entrepreneurship opportunities in this sector of European crafts, so that they generate value and, as their ancestors did, can continue to live on it. The project must be financed because:

1) We work explicitly, and in a main way, some of the European priorities in our national context of this 2019 call: on the one hand, the European cultural heritage, because handicraft is our central theme. And on the other, social inclusion, because we intend to eliminate gender stereotypes in relation to access to certain craft trades through activities that will help address gender diversity and equality.

2) Our project arises from the detection of specific and relevant needs detected after the application, by partner schools in their respective environments, of the SWOT analysis. The conclusions were unanimously shared by all. As regards the “Threats”, we agree to point out the loss of employment and cultural heritage that resulted in the disappearance of artisan crafts.

The main “Weakness” identified was the difficulty of our graduated students to find a job that, in part, was due to the need for a greater connection of the educational competences we work in relation to those required by the companies in our environments. We agree that the solution to the needs found were:

a) Only with the endogenous development of the territories where our centers are inserted would these problems be solved.

b) If we wanted to contribute to the above, we need to deepen our relationships to conserve and promote these craft trades and, at the same time, collaborate for the joint detection of entrepreneurship opportunities offered by the handicraft sector at European level.

3) Because it is innovative in relation to the exchange of good experiential practices that will affect the adoption of new teaching performance guidelines.

Saku Gümnaasium Estonia

The Saku Gümnaasium school is located in Saku (Estonia). It is a public center of secondary education. We have two buildings. We have 1315 students between the ages of 12 and 20, and 92 teachers. Our center is structured in the following areas of knowledge: Art and History, Science, Technology, Information Technology and Languages.

We promote and support varied extracurricular activities for the development of our students: we teach courses in ceramics, carpentry, joinery and folk songs. Which allows us to collaborate and involve artisan associations in the area. Some of these workshops are taught by members of these associations. At the end of them we organize local competitions.

This is the Website https://www.saku.edu.ee/

. We are convinced that, with this project, our teachers will acquire key competences in the field of: collaboration; teamwork; planning; organization; management; communication and a number of very important social skills that will be decisive not only for the successful implementation of the project but will remain in our school and help us modernize it. The motivations we had to participate in this association were several. On the one hand, we think that it aligned with our idea of ​​preserving our cultural and natural heritage. On the other, that solved a lack that we have, but that we want to correct with this project, because we would like to learn in areas linked to new technologies (3D printing and virtual reality).

Where is Saku Gümnaasium Estonia?

The rationale is that at the dawn of the fourth industrial revolution we have to provide our students with the ICT tools and business skills necessary to survive, but at the same time, we must preserve ancestral trades that are at risk of disappearing due to globalization. . We believe that the proposal of this Erasmus project to integrate ICTs into these trades, to make them more competitive, is a way to preserve them and ensure their survival.

Our educators have the following experiences and capacities with which they contribute to the project: – We have a powerful department in plastic arts and crafts. – Our experience in networking (we collaborate with artisan associations in the area and organize competitions and fairs with them). We developed a network with the local circle of artisans in a local project that we lead on “multiculturalism and ethnography: past and future”. – The rest of the team is very active, participatory and with a high level of English. – We contribute to this consortium our experience in natural, cultural and historical heritage conservation programs.

MOTIVATION We want to continue with our internationalization project that we started in 2016. We have introduced it in our Annual Plan. The main motivation for the FNV to get involved in the project is that we are aware of the importance of educating students in programming for the 21st century.

Where is Fjölbrautaskóli Norðurlands Vestra?

Our school is working on the implementation of programming as part of our curriculum. In Fjolbrautaskoli Nordurlands vestra (FNV) there are some programming courses, but they have been offered as part of the electronics studies. In our environment there are many craft trades that are being lost, which forces our young people to leave our town and go to Reykjavik. We want to create the necessary circumstances to help our students to have business opportunities and avoid depopulation of our people. We are excited about this Erasmus project the possibility of helping to preserve those ancestral trades, which require artisanal skills, through the use of technology. For us, we think it is the key to the survival of our beautiful people.

Our educators have the following experiences and capacities with which they contribute to the project: – We have been working with 3D students for years to solve social problems and we have a network of companies involved in our workshops and activities. -All the teachers involved have the technical knowledge, skills, administrative support and sufficient experience to successfully execute all aspects of this project. Our strengths are consistent and aligned with the achievement of the objectives of this project.

The main motivation is the interest of our school for the conservation of historical and cultural heritage from the promotion of social enterprise. Help our students to detect opportunities for entrepreneurship in the European sector of art, crafts, protection and promotion of cultural heritage.

In addition, Nový Jičín is located in the Moravskoslezský region, one of the weakest economically in the republic. However, it is surrounded by many artisanal businesses of great cultural value that are in the process of disappearing because they cannot compete in a globalized world. They are the great forgotten public policies. Finally, an additional reason to participate in this project is to offer our students the chance to see other realities. We want them to learn to open their minds. Our school belongs to a small town located in a remote area north of Moravia, in an increasingly global world, this project, in addition to the skills and the change in methodology that will mean for the school, will help us get them out of their environment endogamic.

The main potential and capabilities of the center for the project are: 1) Its multilingualism. At school we teach five languages: English, German, Spanish, French and Russian.

The school has been accredited to take the ECDL test.

2) We have three higher education training cycles (Administration and companies, ICT and health).

The first two will be of great help to detect entrepreneurial opportunities from the use of virtual reality in European crafts, for example, creating audio guides made with virtual reality with the students to preserve the knowledge of craft crafts at risk of disappearing. 3)

The center equipment. The school building is very well equipped. It has 9 computer labs, 2 tablet labs, 10 interactive whiteboards, 3D printers, etc. All staff have a high level of English and extensive experience in international projects (Comenius, Leonardo, Erasmus +).
