Project eTwinning “Skilled Europeans”
About the project:
Teenage life isn’t always easy. It implies a lot of changes. Students often lack self-confidence, and have doubts about their skills and qualities. It is all the more difficult as it happens at a time when they have to make decisions for their future studies / jobs, and also at an age when they have a lot of pressure and sometimes find it hard to know who they are / who they want to be. So the idea is to start a project to help students develop psycho-social skills which will be essential for their future professional and personal lives.
→ practise and improve English and ICT skills
→ open onto Europe and discover other cultures
→ develop psycho-social skills by working in teams, making decisions together, expressing their creativity etc…
→ boost students’ self-esteem and give them tools to cope with their future in a positive way, by focusing on their skills and qualities
Students will improve their English and ICT skills and will learn to be more respectful and responsible by working in teams. By collaborating on given tasks, they will be more confident and will realize they have skills and qualities and can achieve great things together.
