Description of the activity:
C4 – Global warming issues and renewable energy – each team presents one type of renewable energy. They research online to see how much each type of energy is produced in their countries and make comparisons. They present and discuss causes and effect of global warming. They watch films about the future of the world affected by the depletion of natural resources and pollution. They visit solar power plant and talk to experts about the present and future of renewable energy. Then students work in teams to create models of a sustainable city in the future, which uses alternative sources of energy.
- welcoming event – music and traditional dances
- Introductory meeting – presentation of participants (+ ice-breaking games)
- Presentation of meeting objectives and timetable
- initial evaluation
- students present their schools. Host sts accompany guests on a guided tour of the school
- students attend classes. Teachers meet to organize discuss education system differences
- Lecture: Traditional sources of power – fossil fuels and impact on the environment. Global warming issues (host students)
- Presentations of guest students: Solar power, Geothermal Power, Hydroelectric, Wind Power
- Application: students do online research and check the percentage of overall energy
consumption that is covered by each type. Discussions and feedback
- Project assignment: Split in groups, students prepare Animoto presentations to raise awareness about global warming and its effects - Students watch a film about the world of the future affected by resource depletion. Then they discuss the film in groups
- field trip: students observe a solar power plant and talk to experts
- students watch and discuss short videos that present energy sustainable cities of the future
- STEM project: students are split in multicultural groups and design their own model of a sustainable city of the future
- Final evaluation
- Closing meetings with parents, teachers, local authorities invited
- Presentation of certificates
Cultural events are organized every day after classes. The activities take place in school, within the frame of the school timetable, with the exception of cultural events and field trips. We will try not to affect the overall school activity and minimize disruptions.
- teachers become aware of differences among education systems
- students improve their understanding causes and effects of global warming
- students develop their key competences in STEM area
- students gain become aware of the need to turn to alternative sources of energy
- they exercise their creativity and scientific knowledge to create designs of future cities
- presentations of schools
- presentations on the topics
- STEM projects
- dissemination materials – pictures, videos, student testimonials
- materials for the final output
- certificates of attendance
- Europass documents
- initial and final evaluation
Participants and accompanying teachers will gain awareness about the problem of global warming and its impact on the environment. Students will understand the necessity to address the problem and become motivated to get involved in their communities in order to raise awareness about it. They will have increased awareness of alternative sources of energy and how increasing their use will contribute to the future sustainability of the world.
Also, at a partnership level, partners will get to know each other better, face to face, understand one another’s problems, by sharing experiences from school life to personal life.
By delivering their own presentations, students become more confident in speaking in front of audiences, develop autonomy and self-learning, develop communication and interpersonal skills. They feel motivated and valued and become resources for other students, thus promoting peer-to-peer learning.
By spending time with host children, they become more communicative, develop social skills, intercultural competence and respect for other cultures. They improve their English skills and also acquire some basic expressions in Portuguese.
By participating in cultural events, students develop their knowledge of Geography, History, customs, traditions, thus improving cultural awareness. They also develop a sense of European identity as a result.
By taking part in common projects and interacting with their peers in the school environment, participants develop their team work skills, assetiveness and negotiation skills. They also develop key competences in STEM field.
Teachers improve their organisational skills, group and time management, thus being better equipped to deal with participation in future exchanges.
