Brigitte Parry has kindly included a short news on our project in the Comenius Space Newsletter. It was sent around yesterday night. This newsletter has more than 2600 subscribers, including the Commission and all the Socrates agencies.

I think we all should subscribe. It is probably the best way to know about what is going on in other Comenius projects, other websites...

E-HELP: European History E-Learning Project

The European History E-Learning Project (E-HELP) is a Comenius 2.1 Project (Training of School Educational Staff). Established in October, 2004, the overall aim of E-HELP is to encourage and improve the use of ICT and the Internet in history classrooms in Europe.

Over the next three years E-HELP will:

Research, evaluate and present evidence of good practice in the use of ICT and the Internet in European History Classrooms.

Produce and manage a multilingual website and discussion forum to support the project and its aims.

Create innovative online history resources for teaching a European dimension with a range of “past-present” historical issues in a multilingual/second language context.

Deliver a residential course in July 2007 (International School of Toulouse) in the use of ICT and the Internet in the history classroom.

E-HELP held its first meeting in Toulouse on 17th-20th February, 2005.

Do You Speak Love, Turkey

This is an urgent call to those who would like to how to speak about Love!

This Turkish school has already studied the subject with their students and they would now like to expand their work to an international collaborative project on Love. This would involve love poems competitions or articles on the subject, international love trips to know each other on the basis of individual family life, customs, traditions, short local walking festivals to show how different people come together and get tied with love, acting dramas, mini instrumental music concerts on love using local instruments....etc.

Well! After all, the main preoccupation of most school kids is love and later in life, things do not change that much! So this seems to be quite an interesting and highly motivating subject J Contact teacher:Osmandag2001@yahoo.com

UNITE (Understanding Needs In Teaching Europeans), Poland

This Polish school is looking for primary or lower secondary school teachers interested in joining a Comenius 1 School Partnership – School Development Project. They already have 3 partners in the UK, Sweden and Poland. All partners have some experience in international projects.

This project will audit teaching and learning styles in each school to develop an understanding of how and why children learn with a view to more closely matching the learning needs of children to teaching objectives. This will be achieved by a key teacher and senior manager from each school steering a research process which will involve collecting and auditing data from children and the school community, intercultural group discussion and reflective academic study of current research with guidance from university staff. Each country will share good practice and alter teaching styles where appropriate to match learning needs. The project will be greatly enhanced by the sharing of pedagogical experiences across five European countries and the conclusions of the project will be reflected both formally in a report and practically in changes made in each school as we anticipate that adapted teaching styles and greater student participation in the learning process will lead to improved attitudes to learning, behaviour and all-round improvement in standards.

We received a reply from the editor of "Popular History" in Sweden (magnus.bergsten@popularhistoria.se Populär Historia ). He wants us to keep him informed about the project. He also wrote that the "Swedish History Days" (an annual History Conference / Workshop / etc...) has "History on the Web" (historia på webben) as one of the main topics. The Swedish History Days take place in September... maybe we could present something over the web... :rolleyes:

I have just had the picture researcher from the Guardian on the phone. It seems they are going to publish my two articles (on E-HELP and IST).

They will be looking at the Seminar section to get an idea of the photograph/s they are going to use. If you get an email please respond very quickly as the failure to get the necessary pictures might get the article delayed.

I have contacted the two dominant Unions for teachers in Sweden: LR (Lärarnas Riksförbund) and LF (Lärarförbundet). The LR Union paper "skolvärlden" would like some more information from me and they consider publishing an article about the project. I will let you know more as soon as the cooperation develops... (it might also be an idea for other members to contact your unions...)

I published a short notice about the E-HELP project at the Česká a Slovenská část fóra, a forum for Czech and Slovakian teachers at Education Forum.

I also contacted History teachers association ASUD in Prag. Their webpage could be find at: http://www.mujweb.cz/www/asud/. After resending my notice by the mail to most of its members I hope that I contributed in spreading of the knowledge about us and our activities.

Some members of ASUD contacted me almost immediately offering help of different kinds.
