This new project is ment as a continuity of the previous project , “United in Nature – International Nature, International Heritage!”-“U3N”, but with another focus and activities, in order to have a meaningful developement in our further work with national parks and local nature, something which we realised the need of, while working with the previous project. In the project “Active in Nature – Enjoying the Nature!”- “ANEN” there will be involved 4 schools from different European countries: Norway, Spain, Lithuania and France. These are former partners , from our last Comenius project , “U3N”.
All schools are located close to national parks or protected areas, which we all already are well known with, and that is why our main goal now is to continu to discover Europe’s nature, its beauty and diversity, the Eurpean dimension, by going some steps further, in our work with national parks.. The main objective of the project is to continu to develop pupils’ interest in nature, their curiosity about why we need national parks, to help them to find a meaningful connection between science/theoretical activities and practical work connected to climate change/environmental issues and especially to teach them a sense of responsibility. This time we want to go more active in combinig practical outdoor activities with digital work by creating a guiding app in own national parks, during each meeting abroad. Further more, we want to increase the number of transnational teaching workshops, with focus on teaching English/French/Spanish languages, in order to exchange the best practice or innovative methods of teaching/learning a foreign language.
Based on earlier experiences with our previous project, we would like to achieve a better and more meaningful use of eTwinning as main communication and cooperation platform. Because we focus on enhancing digital integration in learning, teaching, training and youth work at various levels, we want to have monthly Skype-meetings, where our students and their teachers can plan and exchange the teaching content related to our project theme. These virtual meetings are ment to continu/fullfil the work done during the physical mobility. In this way pupils and teachers will develop the relation between each other and hopefully the use of English language as main cooperation language.
