Edublogs

The online service Edublogs, created in 2005, hosts blogs and provides custom blogging platforms to individual teachers, school districts and hundreds of thousands of students.

Within this platform, teachers can easily create and manage as many student blogs as needed, engaging students in their learning and enhance instruction through collaboration, student portfolios, and different classroom uses. Blogs can be completely private or open to the public and since Edublogs only host education related content, they are allowed by most school filters. Features also include discussion tools, video embedding, Facebook and Twitter integration, and calendars.

Traditions across Europe

Traditions Across Europe is a project within the eTwinning community (http://www.etwinning.net/en/pub/index.htm), which is an EU programme that enables and encourages European schools to collaborate using ICT. Traditions Across Europe is based on an information exchange amongst 22 European schools about particular aspects, activities and traditions of the school's own country, a blog was set up by the schools to support this exchange. There, the 10 to 11 year old pupils of the Istituto Comprensivo "Don Bosco"- Francavilla in Sinni" (PZ) in Italy shared what they experienced and made at school as they learned about their own origins, history and traditions. Through the project's blog, and with the help of their two teachers Gina Antonietta Mango and Carmelo Mario Martino, the Italian pupils could communicate and exchange materials about their countries' traditions.

The children were engaged in the search and discovery of local traditions: songs, typical recipes, festivities, games and particular activities (wine-making, cider-making, olive oil extraction). It was a whole experience for the pupils, as they were confronted with the materials the other schools published on the blog and as they got to know more about the local, national and European culture. The most innovative and creative elements of the project were the confrontations that occured with foreign pupils and teachers, the analysis of authentic materials such as traditional objects, instruments, places, photographs, texts… and of course the usage of ICT to search and communicate, the realization and the usage of the Blog (http://traditionsacrosseurope.wordpress.com) and the usage of eTwinning twinspace (http://twinspace.etwinning.net/launcher.cfm?lang=en&ca=traditionsacrosse...).

There is the initiative's page on the eTwinning twinspace: http://my.twinspace.etwinning.net/traditionsacrosseurope.

Traditions Across Europe è un progetto nell'ambito della comunità eTwinning (http://www.etwinning.net/en/pub/index.htm), un programma comunitario che consente e incoraggia le scuole europee a collaborare con le TIC. Traditions Across Europe è basato sullo scambio di informazioni tra 22 scuole europee su aspetti specifici, attività e tradizioni del Paese della scuola, un blog è stato istituito dalle scuole a supporto di tale scambio. Lì, gli alunni di 10-11 anni di età dell'Istituto Comprensivo "Don Bosco" - Francavilla in Sinni "(PZ) in Italia hanno condiviso ciò che hanno sperimentato e fatto a scuola mentre imparavano a conoscere le proprie origini, la storia e le tradizioni. Attraverso il blog del progetto e con l'aiuto dei loro due insegnanti Gina Antonietta Mango e Carmelo Mario Martino, gli studenti italiani hanno potuto comunicare e scambiare materiali sulle tradizioni dei loro paesi.
I bambini sono stati impegnati nella ricerca e scoperta delle tradizioni locali: canzoni, ricette tipiche, feste, giochi e attività particolari (vinificazione, sidro, estrazione di olio d'oliva). È stata un'esperienza completa per gli alunni, dato che si sono confrontati con i materiali delle altre scuole pubblicati sul blog e dato che hanno avuto modo di conoscere meglio la cultura locale, nazionale ed europea. Gli elementi più innovativi e creativi del progetto sono stati gli scontri che si sono verificati con alunni e docenti stranieri, l'analisi di materiali autentici, come oggetti della tradizione, strumenti, luoghi, fotografie, testi ... e, naturalmente, l'uso delle TIC per cercare e comunicare, la realizzazione e l'utilizzo del Blog (http://traditionsacrosseurope.wordpress.com) e l'utilizzo di TwinSpace eTwinning (http://twinspace.etwinning.net/launcher.cfm?lang=en&ca=traditionsacrosse ...)
C'è la pagina dell'iniziativa su TwinSpace eTwinning: http://my.twinspace.etwinning.net/traditionsacrosseurope

Dschola

Dschola is a regional project (set up in Piedmont and Valle D’Aosta, Italy) aimed at stimulating greater attention to ICT, by involving students, teachers and families in partnership with schools. It is based on accelerating and supporting developments that are already taking place within the New Economy. The Dschola school network consists in 27 excellence technical secondary schools, the so called Centres, reference points for technological issues in their regional area and with proven experience within the ICT area. Fondazione CRT, an Italian Bank Foundation, and Piedmont Region, the regional department of school and education, made the project possible, largely financing it. The no profit association is one of the most important result of the Dschola Project and was founded in October 2004, starting from the existing network of the community of schools, consisting of a selected group of primary and secondary schools, the so-called Centres of Service, Animation and Experimentation (CSAS), with proven technical and didactical excellence at regional level aiming at disseminating their experiences and expertise towards other.
