Pek, the Traveller Flea 4

Pek, our tiny flea, gets his eTwinning backpack for sixth year, nowadays for travelling in time. A new generation of students for Pek#4 investigating, creating fantastic comic stories and recording audio and video in English and native languages.

Introduction

Pek, the Traveller Flea, is an eTwinning project (which is part of Erasmus+, the EU program for school learning).

The final results of the former editions were three comic books made among several European schools, published in all their languages, in PDF, web and paper. Other results were: a set of merchandising objects, videos, video-tutorials, etc.

In the fourth edition, Pek, the Traveller Flea - Stickers and Videos, pupils used the comic books to create a sticker album and some videos with the dialogues in all their languages.

Pek#4 is the fifth edition (and this is the 6th year of team working). We will create a new comic book about Pek travelling in time, with dialogues, videos and some surprises.

 

In this edition teachers and students are from:

 ☼ IES San Clemente, Santiago de Compostela (Galicia, Spain)

 ☼ Escola Básica e Secundária de Gama Barros, Cacém (Sintra, Portugal)

 ☼ IES Rey Don García, Nájera (La Rioja, Spain)

 ☼ Lycée Louis Blériot, Trappes (France)

 ☼ Střední škola průmyslová a umělecká, Hodonín (Czech Republic)

 ☼ Liceo Classico "S. G. Calasanzio", Carcare (Italy)

 

The project's main aims are:

 → To communicate between partners in English (Acquire confidence in their English competence).

 → To create a comic book in mixed teams. (Work in a collaborative way through transnational teams, learn to create stories in a collaborative way and how to convert them into comics).

 → To use the languages of the partners and English language to record some sentences. (Discover our partners' languages).

 → To create videos coordinating fixed images and recordings. (Improve the use of new information and communication technologies).

 → To learn about software tools such as: web browser, forum, wiki, blog; text, image, audio and video editors, etc. (Improve the use of new information and communication technologies).

 → Discover the history of Europe
 

Work process:

♦ Pupils have to decide their roles (scriptwriter, cartoonist, illustrator, translator, designer, painter) and they have to create seven teams of mixed nationalities.

♦ Each team creates its own script and draws one of the pages of the comic with black ink: the topic is based on a flea that travels in time and arrives in a European place in a certain date in the past. Once there, something funny happens to him.

♦ Every page is translated into all the native languages.

♦ Pupils at vocational training centers colour all the pages using GIMP and compose the comic using Scribus.

♦ There will be other activities such as: introduction, video, illustration creation activity, design of merchandising objects, forum, audio comic, etc.
