(A6) Summary of the Project

Recommended Posts

In many ways the "Summary of the Project" is the most important section of the application form. This is my first draft:

Summary of the Project

The Teaching Citizenship in a Globalized Europe Using ICT Project will attempt to provide educators with strategies and resources to teach citizenship. To facilitate this we will provide a website, online forum and a residential course.

Teaching Citizenship is designed as a three year, three-phase project:

Phase 1 will mainly involve producing an overview of how the subject is taught in different countries and a database of case-studies. These will be published in English and the language of the author. The project team will also create an online forum and website to ensure dissemination of our work.

Phase 2 will mainly involve identifying and evaluating existing good practice in Europe. We will also explore the way citizenship is taught in countries outside Europe.

Phase 3 will mainly involve preparing the first in a series of residential conferences designed to bring European educators together to learn the skills to use ICT in teaching citizenship.

I agree with the summary of the project. However, I have one question: are residential conferences best described as residential workshops?

So far, Citizenship is not taught in Spain. It will be taught in primary and secondary education in the next future, but it will be a bit tricky to find interesting case studies.

I suggest that we can add up something like "Elaborating resources on line to teach Citizenship based on history" I am thinking about setting up a lesson or didactic unit which deals with evolution of the concept and content of citizenship from late 18th century on in the Western World. It will be based in some crucial transformations: liberal revolutions, working class movemente and universal suffrage, suffragism and feminism, civil rights, social rights....

Pedro Reis has raised the issue of languages in the "Other Costs" thread. This is a very important issue and deserves its own thread (I will start one later today).

As explained above, the plan is to create the material in English with certain material in the language of the author. Therefore, given the membership of the project, some of the material will be in Spanish, French, Italian, Swedish, Portuguese and Hungarian. We also plan to use the E-HELP idea of associate membership. This will enable us to obtain accounts of citizenship being taught in other European countries. In this way we can insure that part of the citizenship project is in German, Dutch, etc.

It will of course be incredibly expensive to get the whole of the website translated into all the main European languages. One alternative is to pay members of the project (days contributed) to translate the material from English.

The availability of material in different languages will help our application. Therefore, I think what we decide about this issue should be added to the this section of the application form.

Seems fine to me.

Fully agree. As far as we are concerned the language issue is no problem. We assume the French part as part of our contribution. The teaching of Citizenship is still not present in the Spanish educational system but we'll be able to benefit from other members' expertise to apply and study different cases. Any how, Citizenship wll also be a subject of interest to language and philosophy teachers, as it is the case of our institution, so we'll collaborate in this trend, apart from benefitting and collaborating with historical aspects. Again, fully committed and fully in agreement.

The summary that now appears in our application form:

Phase 2 will mainly involve identifying and evaluating existing good practice in Europe. We will also explore the way citizenship is taught in countries outside Europe. There will eventually be on our website overviews and case studies of how citizenship is taught in England, Wales, Scotland, Spain, Portugal, Sweden, France, Germany, Italy, Hungary, Ireland, Finland, Norway, Czech Republic, Rumania, Bulgaria, Greece, Serbia, Russia, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Croatia, Poland and the Ukraine.

Phase 3 will mainly involve preparing the first in a series of residential conferences designed to bring European educators together to learn the skills to use ICT in teaching citizenship.
