Imagination and motivation through art and game – IMAGINE
This project “IMAGINE” involves ten partners: 9 schools (secondary schools and upper-secondary schools) and the Centre of European Culture (NGO) – The Royal Abbey of Saint Jean d’Angély as the coordinator.
The aim was to develop with students from secondary school and upper secondary schools a smartphone application of 10 original heritage journeys : Rovinj, La Rochelle, Saint Jean d’Angély, Monselice, Meda, Alarjavi, Elektrenai, Pau, Ponte de Sor and Sagunto.
Various objectives: the development of transversal competences out of classrooms (such as civic competences, intercultural skills, creativity, spirit of initiative, autonomy); work on pupils’ motivation in order to reduce dropout ; production of an interactive game on the theme of the city in the form of a treasure hunt enriched with new technologies (QR codes, tablets, applications); an initiative to the urban arts; to broad knowledge on everyone’s own town’s History and the others by showing the unexpected aspect of the cities by modifying their perception; promote the intercultural dialogue and an active citizenship; to enrich the linguistic competences (writing and oral); develop the imagination and to make aware of the notion of European culture(s). Between 2014-2017, this project allowed to set up 2 transnational meetings, 16 long mobilities and 17 short mobilities meeting together more than 200 people (teachers, headteachers, students, administrative employees).
