1) At the beginning of the project, in each school the pupils will analyse the historical and cultural aspects of their own country and specifically of their local area. At the same time they will be also asked to write down what they expect they will find in the other countries. A short presentation will be prepared at the end of this activity.
2) The pupils will also set up an international club of students to exchange any experience of work that could make the project a rewarding one.
Schools will also create:
3) A common space inside e-Twinning, the Twinspace, which will be used for communication and for sharing our project outcomes with the wider community.
4) A free accesible website (containing all the activities and outputs of the project, including a detailed analysis on how to develop the project itself beyond the end of the funding period) (A1).
The project will include the following activities:
5) Before each project meeting, a programme of the visits to the local cultural/historical sites will be prepared by students under the supervision of the teachers and with the involvement of local authorities. The programmes will also include presentations, short movies, leaflets, games (e.g. treasure hunts - A6), sports activities (e.g. orienteering, running races - A5) and any other thing that the students may envisage, considering that the targets are teenagers as they are.
6) During the transnational meetings the local students will “guide” the others to the local cultural/historical sites and will present all the material which they have previously prepared (A8). During the meetings the data gathered at the beginning of the project will be compared. All this material will become part either of the final Guidebook or of other outputs (posters, leaflets, etc.).
7) Language lessons will be held in each school (using local resources if possible, or organising video conferences) teaching pupils the fundamental aspects of the languages of the nations they will visit and especially the language of tourism. Some of the lessons will be held during the short term exchanges of students in Spain, Greece and Italy (C1, C2, C5).
8) ICT lessons will be held in each school. Some of the lessons will be held during the short term exchange of students in the Czech Republic and Poland (C3, C4).
9) At the end of each meeting and at the end of the project, evaluation and/or satisfaction questionnaires will be filled in by all the participants in the project (teachers, pupils, parents, other actors) (A7).
The final outputs of the project will be:
10) A Young Tourist Guidebook (Intellectual Output O1).
11) An Interactive Map (Intellectual Output O2).
12) A final conference in Rome where the Intellectual Outputs will be presented (Multiplier Event E1).
13) A multilingual conversational guide specifically addressed to tourism (A2).
14) Information leaflets to disseminate in the local areas where the five schools are located, with the support of the local authorities (A3).
15) Posters about the meetings and their results to locate in the schools and - if possible - in the seats of the local authorities and sports and touristic associations (A4).
