Project description

Introduction
Nowadays, many schools are newsletter or newspaper publishers… We, with this project, chose to continue our previous Comenius project “The Voice of teens”, and publish again our European multilingual magazine! Our students shall write new articles in their mother tongue and in English language too. This school magazine will be as a regular school newspaper in two versions (paper version and on-line edition) with texts in columns and other interactive features.

So, we want to transfer the experience which we obtained to the younger students and to new colleagues in our schools. The new journey (edition) of our magazine “THE VOICE OF TEENS” will last 1-2 years.

Guidelines

We had focused on some common problems of our students:
·  Poor expressive ability in their own mother tongue
·  Difficulties in writing and reading in English language
·  Lack of mutual knowledge.

We consider that the common work, by writing an internet and paper magazine, will bring the students very close and help them to pass over the above problems. Students will become more responsible and will understand that it is possible to work together. The distance and sometimes the different reality are not the basic obstacle. It’s nice to make efforts to remove the barriers.
Aims and objectives
·  To improve the linguistic and ICT competences
·  To awaken and reinforce creativity and innovation
·  To obtain skills in foreign languages,
·  To learn how you work collaboratively, create friendships through this international cooperation, using the tools of ICT
·  To encourage the learning of modern foreign languages
·  To support the development of innovative ICT-based content, services, pedagogies and practice in lifelong learning
·  To enhance the quality and European dimension of teacher training    
  To support improvements in pedagogical approaches and school management
Work process - collaboration and distribution of tasks
e.g.
·  The Italian partner will provide the needed servers and the site for the project
·  The Italian, Greek and Bulgarian partners will edit the magazine
·   The Slovakian partner will evaluate the work
·  All will write the articles for the magazine and will manage the magazine’s sections. (In each country the students are working in groups, share ideas, develop proposals, write articles, make web pages and pdf files, and send their work to the editor for building the issue).
The roles will be changed next period (probably next semester…) and all partners will participate and will distribute the tasks.
