Each school had one month to develop and keep going on the story from the previous partner. Global values like: Equality, Friendship, Freedom, Love, Loyalty, Brotherhood, Kindness, Tolerance etc, was chosen as points of reference and a source of ideas from each partner to develop their own part of the story.
Each school could chose what value they liked to be their main idea on which they developed their part keeping 2 common characters for all partners: a Dog! and a kid..
But being flexible we were also open to new story characters as we did it finally.
This project has 2 main parts:
A./ The development of the on-line story on the platform of WIKISPACE: http://travellingstory.wikispaces.com/
B. The presentation and dissemination of the educational procedure each school followed to achieve its targets and the interaction was developed among the 9 schools through the year in a BLOG: http://bloggydoggy.edublogs.org/
Each partner had to upload its part ( we suggested: a short text with 4-5 illustrations ..this could be a various kinds of ART : using on the Paint, a hand drawing, handicrafts or whatever pupils liked ) in the 3rd week of its month like this: 1/October: GR 2./November: AT 3./ December: BG 4./ January: DE 5./February: FR 6./March: ES 7./April: UK 8./May: LV 9./June: PT
The whole story was created gradually by the pupils and uploaded on the WIKI by the teachers.
We also built a Blog where all partners exchanged info, various activities concerning highlights from the Dog arrived* in each country, comments about their work, favourite music & songs, pupil’s voices recorded, short videos etc.. offering one more interactive way of action to all partners..
*Through the year we also made gradually - all together- a travelling Dog-doll .. each partner added some extra materials on the received Dog. They kept it for 3 weeks and then, they sent it to the next partner school.
Here we tried to show how a Blog can be an interactive tool among 9 schools..
We suggested some activities but finally as you may see all partners made much more inspired from each other’s work..
1./ post a funny photo of your class for knowing each other..
2./ comment a photo showing a class activity..
3./send your Christmas wishes with craft..
4./ sing a traditional song you like..
5./ show how you celebrate the carnival at your area..
6./use Bubbleshare and present your neighbourhood ..
7./ Look at the others’ presentation about ‘neighbourhood’ ask and learn from the others..
8./ Share what else you like , try to make a post by ‘yourself’
