ASEF ClassNet Online Collaborations 2018

ARTS AND CULTURE

Bridges over Borders

"Bridges over Borders" is an online collaboration undertaken to trace the diversity of national diasporas and find elements of it locally. Students collect information about artefacts in their city (country), connected with partner countries and present them as short articles and video clips which are eventually placed on an interactive world map. Thus, by clicking on a specific country we can trace its intercultural links. Participating students and teachers will benefit by responding to challenges, presenting their work, being innovative, being inspired by others, interacting with eachother, sharing, exchanging outcomes, learning from others' cultures. Participants will learn to communicate no matter how different their origins are, or how differently they have been brought up or educated so far. The utmost goal is to instil tolerance, foster communication and turn participants into active citizens of a globalised world, while strenghtening their intercultural skills and multiple interlligence.
