    Contributions to the European Heritage

    We are adult education institutions for pre-university and pre-higher general education. In practice the main task of our institutions is to give students, who have left education without qualifications, a new opportunity (second chance). Only the Greek Aeolis, being a cultural NGO, has some differences. To overcome this difference Aeolis worked informally together in this project with the local public Lesvos Adult Education Centre. Because of this similarity, our project can be the beginning of a long partnership of our “second chance institutions”. Each school presents some examples of historical contribution of their own culture to the European culture. The students of these schools will develop research, writing and presentation skills by writing texts about the topics and by making photographs and/or videos of monuments, paintings and other relics of their past. They presented their work to their partners (by the Moodle platform). This is published on the project website (www. european-heritage.com). All virtual work of the partner schools will also be united into printed European history book. This will stimulate interest in their own history and make them aware of the mutual influences (of the various parts of Europe) of the past and the development of a European consciousness. On the other hand teachers will be stimulated to encourage team work methods and experimental learning.
