21st Century Learning Skills
Collaboration & Knowledge building
Collaborative learning is key. The students will build knowledge in group and interdisciplinary. During some moments each group will take care of another topic and they will learn from each other (jigsaw). Students will present findings to each other and to other schools (countries) via videos.
The students share responsibility and and make substantive decision with their peers.
ICT of Learning
Students will use Office Mix to create videos and will use several tools to create short articles (Sway, OneNote, PowerPoint, Word, etc). During one specific week they will use one specific new tool (Minecraft, Lifeliqe, etc) so they will discover a new tool. During this week all participating countries will discover the capacity of many new tools.
Quick start guides are available for all tools used during this project:
Real world problem solving
More than 1.2 billion people lack access to clean drinking water. Needless to say the students are solving real-world problems by trying to identify local and global water issues and trying to find solutions
Although this project lasts no more than 5 weeks, the learning activity is long term. Students are allowed to assess their own work and the work of peers.
The communication are guided to produce well-developed and organized communication on local and global scale. They will communicate in local language with each other in their own group, between groups and in English with the other participating countries: communication on 3 different levels.
