1. Sommario progetto
Sommario: 

The Dream a dream project was developed by Mrs. Marsha Goren of Ein Ganim School Israel in 2001 and first met the Internet in 2002. The idea started as a vehicle to encourage children and educators to share in a learning environment that would lead to global communication and tolerance. Dream a dream at Ein Ganim prompts students at Ein Ganim and around the world to join in multicultural projects that capture student’s thinking in a visual way. It inspires children to take a deeper look at the world by exploring, exchanging ideas and using research tools, supporting a positive learning environment and a shared learning experience. Because of the war between Israel and the Palestinians which began in December 2008, we decided to invite schools to join in our peace project. The children felt the need to express their feelings on the subject together with many of our partners around the world. Our peace project aims to encourage cross cultural communication and promote global understanding, while helping children to expand their knowledge in technology, support the use of new educational technologies. The educational value of teaching about peace was essential and the results of the work we received from our partners is indeed heartwarming. More than 25 schools from around the world have taken part in this project as of today.

9. Obiettivi ed elementi di innovazione
Please explain the targets and the background of your project: 

1. To encourage and inspire student involvement which strengthens the curriculum and allows learners to become active in the process and in real life exchanges. 2. To engage in an effective global collaboration amongst youth, authentic language use, and the promotion of learning towards positive cultural exchanges 3. To educate and train children to practice communication skills and provide abundant learning opportunities in an online environment 4. To have students use their English for authentic communications with a global audience of peers. Partners receive updates about the current projects. The website, which is a meeting place for all, allows students and educators to take part in varied activities, exchange ideas, and promote global collaboration. And finally the Globaldreamers peace project and its vision is to encourage peace among all nations and to educate a more tolerant and understanding individual.

Come, e con quali mezzi cerca di raggiungere gli obiettivi prefissati: 

The project encourages global and cultural exchange among all who register. The project answers to the requirement of the curriculum, children are the center of attention and the learning is active. This projects allows children an educators to take part in this important and meaningful project, exchange ideas about peace and allow for global communication.
We were even given the opportunity to take part live on a radio program in the United States where children from the USA asked their colleagues in Israel about the war and they could express their opinions about the war and hope for future peace.

Quali opportunità/problemi affronta: 

The peace project encourages children to work in creative ways of resolving conflicts and problems. Our dream is to create a global net work of schools working together in harmony and thinking of varied ways to encourage future peace. It is with each of us that peace can begin. There are many conflicts in the world. It is with understanding that the process of peace begins; the valuing of each person; the respect for cultures that are different from our own; the willingness to share our culture while appreciating those that are different.

Please explain what is unique or special in your project: 

The peace project is a very special project. First of all it helps to build cultural bridges among different countries. It also builds and unites relationships among the teachers, children and even their parents. When they ask other students from around the world for their thoughts on violence and peace, they really want to know and to share their ideas for solving these problems.
Another unique aspect is the fact that some of our partners shared their ideas on peace in their own languages. In addition, there are resources for the educators and ideas for teaching as well as the variety of materials we received from our friends around the world.

10. Risultati
Describe the results of your project as per today: 

The results are measured by the many schools and children who have joined us in our work for many years now. The work has received international and national recognition throughout the years due to the hard work and determination of our hard work

In che misura risponde ai bisogni degli utenti: 

Children and educators are pleased as the results are put on the website for immediate feedback. In the frequent weekly emails I sent to the educators there is mention of the great work everyone is doing and contributing for the benefit of all. Children take pride in what they are doing and act as ambassadors for their schools and countries in promoting peace.

Quanti utenti interagiscono con il progetto mensilmente e in quale modo: 

Dream participants take part in the online activities and contribute materials to the peace project such as artwork, drawings, stories, poems, graphic work and writings. This encourages creative skills as well as high thinking skills when having to share ideas on such a serious subject like peace. I believe between three to five thousand children take part in various activities.

Descrivete in quale modo il progetto contribuisce a migliorare l'educazione e la formazione dei giovani: 

It has improved English and technology skills as well as creativity skills. Many children in our project have learned to use graphic programs such as Photoshop, animation programs such as Frames and Flash as well as html skills. These are skills that have led the children to work in global collaboration thus encouraging the future workforce around the world.

Descrivete in quale modo il progetto ha ottimizzato la partecipazione di professionisti, ragazzi, giovani o altri soggetti: 

Though there is much thought behind the peace project it is easy to participate in as this is done purposely to encourage people to step in. Once they see how great their part looks they do more. Suggestions made by students are taken as seriously as those made by their teachers.

Descrivete in quale modo il progetto favorisce l'uso delle nuove tecnologie da parte di professionisti, ragazzi e giovani per lo sviluppo culturale e didattico: 

Since the project requires use of the Internet and email, participants at the very least must become confident in this use. Then many move on to digital photography, animation, presentation building and more as can be seen on the site.

Descrivete i criteri che usate per misurate i risultati raggiunti dal vostro progetto: 

I can measure these results when I see the materials my students prepare as well as the materials we receive from our global partners around the world.

Children, youth, and adults everywhere share the same hopes and dreams for peace. Everyone wants to feel secure, be happy and have friends. No one wants war especially children who are not responsible for war as it is the adults who make these decisions.
