Γλώσσες Εργασίας(Working Languages): Ελληνική & Αγγλική (Greek & English) Τάξη (Class): 6th grade (ΣΤ2) Εκπαιδευτικός (Educator): Θάλεια Χατζηγιάννογλου (T. Hadzigiannoglou) Διάρκεια (Duration ): 4-7 μήνες (4-7 months) Σχολική χρονιά (School Year): 2009-10 AIM Considering the important role of human values in student personality development, we will attempt to use language, ICT and art as a medium for developing our students´ affective, artistic, as well as ICT skills. Our end product will be a presentation of the human values, as perceived of the students of the participating countries, a multilingual value glossary, as well as a book containing students’ worksheets and drawings.


OBJECTIVES Following Bloom´s taxonomy, the project´s objectives can be classified in: Cognitive:Students will be able to develop their native language and foreign language skills. Affective:a) Students will be able to value the importance of human values, b) Students will acquire a positive stance towards the introduction of the European dimension within the school setting, c) Students will develop their affective skills, d) Students will increase their motivation towards native as well as foreign language learning. e) Students will understand how human values are expressed and perceived by other Europeans. Psycho-motor: Students will be able to: a) Draw and paint pictures reflecting specific human values (Artistic skills), b) learn how to use the PC to find information, draw and paint pictures of human values and make presentations (ICT skills).


Methodology Our methodology focuses on activities that develop students’ affective, ICT and linguistic skills. In more detail: • We create a beautiful word cloud with the human values in our language. • Using audio/visual prompts (photos/songs/videos) or linguistic material (eg. short stories) students work cooperatively attempting to recognise a specific human value (MATERIAL AVAILABLE IN THE STAFF ROOM). • A discussion follows as how students perceive the vakue and how they would describe it to an alien. • All opinions are collected by the group secretary and recorded on a piece of paper. Students search the Internet to find photos, definitions, quotes and proverbs that are related to the value under investigation. Definitions are written in both mother tongue and English. • On a worksheet, students write the value both in Greek and in English. Then, they complete a specially developed worsheet (see twinspace-staffroom). • Finally, students paint a picture of how they perceive the value. All he material is bound in a book, constructed by the students. The book material is photographed, put in beautiful e-frames and published in the twinblog/twinspace/school’s website. The values we work on are: FRIENDSHIP/BEAUTY/EQUALITY/COLLABORATION/DEMOCRACY/ JUSTICE/WISDOM/OPENESS/RESPECT FOR OTHERS/CONCERN FOR OTHERS
