Schwarzkopf-Stiftung Junges Europa
Students from vocational schools with a special focus on audio-visual techniques and media production in North Rhine-Westphalia will be invited to develop ideas for augmented reality simulations which bring European experiences and encounters directly into the classroom.
We believe, that our project “Making Europe more Real” will
• strengthen European civil society as it empowers young vocational students as well as young European multipliers.
• fight youth unemployment in Europe as it helps young people to build on new media and technological skills.
• make European citizenship education more fun and successful as it tests and offers new technologies for teaching.
• encourage teachers to deal with Europe in class and test new technologies for teaching.
• foster active participation in Europe as young people and will have the opportunity to work with new simulative technologies and experience ‘Europe’ in class.
• will offer new opportunities to learn about diverse viewpoints on current European issues and actively practice European understanding.
In November 2016 …
• more than one hundred vocational students in North Rhine-Westphalia will have a new sense of initiative and entrepreneurship in a European context.
• more than one hundred vocational students in North Rhine-Westphalia will have acquired new digital, social and civic competences to become more active European citizens.
• a new augmented reality simulation for European citizenship education will surprise and engage young people in classrooms all over Europe.
• young people all over Europe will have the opportunity to experience ‘Europe’ in class and encounter European issues in their everyday lives.
• young people all over Europe will have the opportunity to learn about differences in viewpoints on current European issues and practice European understanding.
• Starting in August 2015 we will work together with more than one hundred vocational students and experts to develop a new augmented reality simulation for European citizenship education.
• In spring 2016 all students will take part in preparatory EU Compact Courses.
• In spring 2016 vocational students and experts will work together in a one-day-workshop to develop a new augmented reality tool for European citizenship education. The courses and the workshops will be moderated by young trainers.
• A jury will award a prize to the students with the most innovative ideas.
• In summer 2016 we will develop a concept for an augmented reality tool based on the results.
• In autumn 2016 we will design, translate and share the tool in our network with round about 60.0000 young Europeans.
