Active Young Citizens of Europe
Aim of Partnership
The aim of the partnership is to encourage students to get a deeper insight into the culture and democratic system of their home country as well as other European countries. Researching the system of national and European government as well as the function of voluntary associations enables students to understand how they can play an active part as a European citizen and influence their own future at school, at work, in social and political life.
All partners will research the situation in their country, with students meeting local, national as well as European elected representatives of different associations and visiting their national parliaments. Representatives from each partner school will visit other national institutions/ associations during the project meetings as well as the European Parliament and the partnership will culminate in a European Youth Parliament.
First Year of Partnership
In the first year of the partnership students will explore the different opportunities young people have to express their interests:
• The political structure of their home country and of the European Union
• Different associations of young people
• Voluntary Organizations e.g. Greenpeace
• In order to understand the attitudes of the other European peoples it is important to analyse the national identity of the participating countries.
Second Year of Partnership
In the second year students will visit the European Parliament and finally participate in a European Youth Parliament. They will discuss various possible issues and will choose a topic of concern to them which will be the subject of investigation in each country. They will draw up the agenda and finally some elected students will represent the views of the group in a plenary session of the European Youth Parliament. Their resolutions will be presented to Members of the European ParliamentAll partners will research the situation in their country, with students meeting local, national as well as European elected representatives of different associations and visiting their national parliaments. Representatives from each partner school will visit other national institutions/ associations during the project meetings as well as the European Parliament and the partnership will culminate in a European Youth Parliament.

Technologische Innovationen werden nach wissenschaftlichen Untersuchungen das Kommunikationsverhalten gravierend verändern. Dieser Paradigmenwechsel zeigt sich jetzt schon bei der Kommunikation unserer Schülerinnen und Schüler. Soziale Netzwerke wie beispielsweise „Facebook“ oder „Twitter“ werden immer häufiger genutzt. Das pädagogische Potenzial der neuen Medien wird bereits beim Lehren und Lernen an den Universitäten genutzt. Dagegen ist der Einsatz von sozialen Medien für Lehr- und Lernzwecke in der Sekundarstufe II noch nicht weit verbreitet. Es fehlen hierfür die pädagogischen Konzepte und die entsprechenden Curricula. Es stellt sich daher die Frage, inwieweit es möglich ist, soziale Netzwerke auch im Schulunterricht adäquat und sinnvoll zu nutzen. Dies ist die grundlegende Idee des neuen Projekts, L2T (Learn to Teach by Social Web).

Project Objectives

Am internationalen Comenius-Schulprojekt  „L2T“ nehmen Partner aus Deutschland, England, Tschechien, Italien, Dänemark, Belgien und Spanien teil. Die Sozialforschungsstelle der technischen Universität Dortmund ist verantwortlich für das Management und wird das Projekt wissenschaftlich begleiten. Ziel ist es, ein Curriculum für Lehrkräfte zu erstellen, anhand dessen diese lernen, ihre Schülerinnen und Schüler mit Hilfe von sozialen Netzwerken zu unterrichten. Das Gesamtergebnis des Projektes (Erstellen eines Curriculums) wird im März 2014 auf der Cebit in Hannover von allen Projektpartnern dem dortigen Publikum präsentiert.

The project activities include photos, presentations, reports and videos.
