Road Safety around the world

Versione stampabileInvia a un amico

The road safety project encourages students at Ein Ganim and around the world to consider the dangers of road safety and to learn to take proper precautions in order to save their lives.

1. Sommario progetto
Sommario: 

The unit includes pictures of different schools and places from around the world involved in road safety. It includes student resources with worksheets, on line games, games that can be downloaded for class use, stories, poems, and animations. There is a section with student work from around the world where educators and students are sharing materials for everyone to share and from which they can learn. For the teachers there is a resource page with ideas on how to use the unit and materials for teaching in the classroom. Ein Ganim School has also been teaching road safety yearly as a part of the curriculum in every class in our school. Our staff believes in educating the children about saving lives and being careful on the roads to and from school, they will become aware and accidents will be prevented. A very special part of our site includes a road safety posty through which children can exchange emails and send cards safely and securely. The children from Ein Ganim School designed these postcards for their friends around the world. There is a game section, a credit section to all of the schools who have contributed to our unit and a contact section for future schools that will join us in the future. The idea was started and implemented by Marsha Goren. There is a serious problem in road safety and road accidents in Israel, I thought by inviting our friends from around the world to join us children would be motivated to learn and share their information together.

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

I originally created and developed a curriculum about road safety, which is now part of the English curriculum in Israel. For me it was an opportunity to rebuild an existing curriculum and improve it with technology.. I also decided to expand my project by using the new road safety unit.. I have now built a learning unit which I hope will the save lives of Israeli citizens and our partners from around the world. Even if one life is saved, then we have served an important purpose.

The safety unit inspires students to take a deeper look at what causes road accidents. Based on their own research, and comparing road safety in other countries children learn and become aware of the dangers in our streets. Teams present their proposals to classmates and their colleagues from around the world.
Saving lives is the most important aspect of our project and children need to be educated so they may become better citizens in the future.

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

It brings together a group of educators and children from around the world who are studying a subject which can save lives. This unit is very important and can be beneficial in many ways when educating children about road safety. By using technology children can study in many different ways with an international audience.

Quali opportunità/problemi affronta: 

It addresses the problems of road safety and accidents which happen daily all over the world. It brings a solution to _the daily problems of being careful on the roads . Many young children have to cross in the streets on their way to school. They can also compare ideas from other countries and implement these ideas in their studies. Road safety is a crucial subject as it is life threatening and children need to be educated in as many ways possible so they will be accustomed to the dangers in the roads

Please explain what is unique or special in your project: 

The Internet has the power to bring everyone together and share the materials. The unit offers ideas to educators including a workbook which can be downloaded for teaching as well as student resources and games. The unit has more than twenty schools from around the world who have collaborated and shared their knowledge in such a unique way. It is unique as the unit can be used in any classroom in the world and can be translated into any language for teaching.
There is also a posty section where children have designed post cards about road safety and can send each other messages throughout the project.
