Networked European School Web Radio (Erasmus+ KA2 - Cooperation for Innovation and the Exchange of Good Practices - Strategic Partnerships for school education)

Description

The project aims to establish an attractive and modern Web Radio with Portal which will facilitate the cooperation of schools across Europe making learning more challenging and promoting Radio and other cultural products. The direct target groups are school students, primary and secondary education – from public and private schools, and their educators. The Web Radio will provide the necessary tools and skills in order to successfully incorporate web-based radio activities into their educational settings in an innovative way. It will use English as the main language as well partners' language for the audio productions; but the user interface, guides and other material will be translated in 4 different languages.
The radio production is addressed to students without discrimination, while no strict assessment within the project is required; this explains the reason why it will be a successful method to motivate all students to learn. Disadvantaged students -even early leavers- will find this very attractive and alluring. Taking into consideration that the radio as a medium helps disabled students to express themselves and socialize, the Web Radio Portal will be designed more friendly for such target groups; for example students with visual disabilities will be given the chance to communicate via the platform with peers and they will find an new way to learn in a very exciting and new way.
The Web Portal will provide a robust and safe online platform for web-based schools radio productions, giving them an educational-oriented approach, in subjects such as maths, science, languages, history, literature, journalism and also enables various literacies such as media, information and also critical thinking; enhancing in this way the digital integration in learning and training.
