Teaching each other


Our project, ‘Teaching Each Other’, involved an enriching experience of mutual understanding between pupils from three nations: Slovakia, Norway and Spain The students have exchanged information about their cultures and ways of life - practiced and taught both in Spanish and English.

The pedagogical thought behind the project was that the pupils themselves were responsible for teaching their peers from the other two countries. One of the countries prepared activities for the other countries and these groups returned their work for correction later.

The pupils have published reports on some of their trips and celebrations and these entries have been discussed by the other schools.
In December, each country prepared a power point-presentation about their Christmas traditions and made an emotional exchange of Christmas greetings. This is presented in a photo essay on the blog.

Certain characteristics and traditions of the countries have been the subject of the blog entries: the Hungarian minority in Slovakia, the northern lights and the celebration of the return of the sun in Tromso, carnivals, the "Feira Franca", Pontevedra, etc. Also, the pupils have prepared power point-presentations about their school life that are published on the blog as a sample of their schoolwork.

Slovak and Norwegian pupils have watched Spanish movies together with their teachers during the Spanish lessons. These movies have been commented on the blog by the Spanish students and some activities for the Slovak and Norwegians pupils were made.

The three schools have participated together with an event on Springday.

Having reached the moment of evaluation in May, teachers and pupils from the three countries are evaluating the project on the blog. There are been published power point-presentations of the project evaluation by teachers and pupils.

We allk have enjoyed our experience alot.

Our videoconference took place in May.
