Aprendizaje lingüístico y cultural
Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

In the present common European framework, the realization that multilingual training and the construction of a solid European citizenship - not only as individuals, but also as members of a social network- are essential, has led us to the implementation of this linguistic and cultural exchange project, which will hopefully ensure comprehensive education, favour coexistence and provide its participants with a sense of collective identity. This process implies the creation of common grounds and experiences that allow us to feel we are members of a culturally diverse community where we can all understand and respect the complexity of these different identities. The aim of this project is making it possible for both teachers and students to have an open mind towards other nations’ sociocultural realities and to accept the challenges and responsibilities of this process: eradicating sexist patterns inside and outside our classrooms; firmly opposing racist and xenophobic attitudes through common sense, assessing the importance of the different languages in the EU (spanish & english) –including minority languages (catalan & norwegian)- as a heritage we must respect, thus promoting their use in all contexts. We also aim to develop new ways/methodologies/techniques/strategies in foreign language teaching by working closely with the Hadeland Videregaende Skole through JobShadowing and eTwinning as well as through the use of the new information and communication technologies (email,Skype, Moodle, social networks, videoconferences). Participants (see section F) will be selected by objective criteria proposed by the coordinating team. Activities (see section H) are focus on: - Previous teacher training. - Observation of lessons and good practices. - Classroom practice in collaboration with the teacher in charge. - Work sessions with members involved in establishing assesment benchmarks. From the view of the faculty and methods, the JobShadowing experience and the teamwork, we will get a chance to know new teaching/learning strategies in all the subjects and areas involved in the project (sociolinguistics, history…). These experiences will also provide us with a whole range of pedagogical resources to be implemented in our daily teaching practice. The evaluation of the results will be key to detect our strengths, weaknesses, threats and opportunities for the development of this and other projects in the future. This project aims to promote awareness of different cultural backgrounds and extend it to the entire educational community through the dissemination of a global and meaningful learning. We understand the dissemination of this project as: - Awareness of the knowledge acquired by the teachers and students. - An element of motivation and awareness for the rest of the educational community and other social actor.
