PUMO-Educational Support for PUpils on the MOve
Start date: 01 Oct 2012,

The increasing mobility of European citizens has led to a large number of pupils living and studying abroad. They have a need for continued 'homeland specific' studies in their native languages. The PUMO consortium consider that the person best placed to assist such pupils is likely to be a teacher from his 'home' school. Or similar service can be provided by (public or private) training centers, which are in close touch with schools pupils are planning to return. The PUMO proposal builds on work done by the City of Riga with returning pupils and on experience gained by Miksike in delivering on-line Estonian language lessons to students from families from the Estonian Ministry of Defence and Foreign Affairs who are on long term foreign missions. It also builds on the extensive experience that the partners have in developing online lessons and exercises that can be accessed remotely. The project aims to develop further solutions offering learning services for pupils abroad and produces a teacher training program, which enables teachers to assist students living temporarily abroad. Main outputs: a) PUMO research study of user requirements b) Teacher training cause comprising modules:1. Multicultural Education and Intercultural Pedagogy2. Intercultural Communication Skills and Psychological aspects of cross-cultural life3. Learning tools available 4. Work organization and networking skillsThe materials will be available in all of the partnership languages and in English c) A social network of teachers and pupils with links to supporting programs and structuresA minimum of 100 teachers will complete the course by the end of the project and minimum of the 300 teachers will be involved by the end of 2014/2015 academic year. The project will take action to ensure the creation of sustainable community of PUMO teachers and pupils in tight cooperation with schools, (local governments) and community.
