It is the first ever project between schools from Luxembourg and Greenland. Our objective is to improve the communication abilities and language skills of participants, create materials which can be used by other schools or communities , improve the team work skills for both students and teachers, improve the use of ICT and to promote the understanding of different cultural heritages.
Activities will be part virtual collaboration projects, part head to head cooperation when the school exchanges takes place. The pupils will be introduced to a number of apps that will enhance their abilities to work on projects as well as their abilities to pitch and present the project results and products. During 12 months, the pupils will go through intensive IT courses and cooperate across the Atlantic, producing articles, videos and podcasts. They will learn to work together in a foreign language and will be inspired and inspire each other. A part from the focus on IT, which can be perceived merely as a digital toolbox, much of the learning experience will be when the pupils get to dig deeper into European and Inuit culture. What can we learn from each other and where are the similarities? What are the common challenges we face as citizens of the world? Products will be shared with local communities and will introduce the Inuit culture to the Luxembourgish community and the Luxembourgish culture to the Greenlandic community.
