(Re)discovery of horses
Start date: Sep 1, 2015,
End date: Aug 31, 2018
The basic aim of the project is the development of learning material mainly in English (local languages in addition, if desired) for different age groups (e.g. 6-10, 10-14, 14-18) and subjects (history, ethics, creativity, sciences, economy, foreign languages, geography, health,…) around the topic horses and to put this on an online-platform.
Another aim is intercultural learning and networking among teachers and students.
Each partner can contribute different aspects. The material will be worked out by students together with teachers in the respective countries but also during meetings (workshops).
The idea behind was basically a national one: to increase the image of horse-riding among the population and to market a regional but very big exhibition on “men and horse”. This strategic partnership turns this idea into an international context as there will be more learning material in English and other foreign languages. In general there is the tendency of teaching many different subjects in English and this platform will offer material for teachers and multipliers. The side effect can be the promotion of horses as a sector in sports, as a good way for young persons to spend their leisure time, as an economic factor as well as a form of therapy.
The benefits for the participating schools are the experiences during the meetings. Students profit a lot regarding foreign language skills and creating a European network (as they gain a huge number of European friends). Teachers also gain insight into other school systems and can enjoy visiting each other. For the school it is for sure an increase in image and popularity. This platform with material will represent a valuable contribution for the “horse sector” in Europe.
