Digital Dynamic Cultural Dialogue (Reunion)

Rating: 0/5

ICT tools for Preservation of Intangible Cultural Heritage

Location: Saint-Pierre, REUNION (France)

“To know and understand our own culture, we must learn to see it from the point of view of other cultures, comparing our customs and beliefs with those of other times and places. With globalization now upon us, and external diversity on the retreat, it is becoming a matter of urgency to protect and preserve the internal diversity that each society owes to its constituent groups and subgroups, all of which develop differences that they consider highly important.” Claude Lévi-Strauss, French ethnologist

The general idea to be developed by participants is the preservation and promotion of the intangible cultural heritage in the digital age of globalisation alongside looking into migration and social inclusion which influences the dynamic nature of the culture. It will result in collaboration between teachers involved in European cultural heritage education.
The course consists of on-site lectures, practical activities, cooperative work, visits and discussions. The thematic content of each day is based on experiences followed by reflection-upon-action in relation to the digital orientation of the young generation.
During the course participants will explore various Web 2.0 applications to be used as active and productive educational tools. The course ends with the evaluation session and discussion on future initiatives, such as eTwinning projects or school partnerships, followed by presentation of certificates to the participants.
