Welcome
to the THE IMAGE OF THE OTHER Portal

 

'The Image of the Other' is an example of a collaborative project in which teachers and their pupils use internet and this material as a starting point for the most crucial part in a collaborating process: the dialogue in which you exchange information, data, viewpoints, etc., on many different subjects with colleagues and peers abroad. A foreign language is often needed, as a medium, for international collaborative teleprojects, Computer Supported Collaborative Learning projects (CSCL-projects) or collaborative e-learning projects, as well as being the object for teaching and learning.

These teleprojects/CSCL/e-learning projects have run thousands of times over the past fifteen years. The necessary educational, organisational and technological support for the projects is organised within the European Schools Project Association, a network organisation of hundreds of schools and other educational institutions in many countries of Europe and beyond.

The ‘Pupil's Pages’and the 'Teacher's Manual' offer a complete scenario for planning, undertaking, and evaluating an international CSCL project. The materials lead up to flexibility in the teaching and learning process as the teachers can adjust the texts in the material according to their students’ needs. There is a clear progression in the material, it can be used in various learning situations, and parts of it can be used in the introductory sessions to cross curricular projects.
