In relation to the European key competences we noted the following positive outcomes: • Communication in the mother tongue. Pupils were enabled to reformulate their knowledge and opinions into texts that were fed into the story; they were constantly reminded that their story had to be understandable by a variety of addressees, including people from a totally different culture. • Digital competence. The children used 1001voices, an authoring tool for the creation of multimedia stories made available within the frame of the TALES project; moreover, they got mastery of content editing programs, for example for scanning images, recording audios (Audacity), editing pictures etc. • Learning to learn. Within each group, pupils played specific roles in turns that enhanced their responsibility for their own learning. • Cultural awareness and expression. The whole process of a multimedia story creation is meant to enhance selfexpression through different media; in addition, the topic selected (comparison between two far-away and quite different cultures) enhanced cultural awareness (as well as intercultural dialogue and tolerance).
