Mosaic of Communication (Guadeloupe)

Rating: 5/52 users

Effective communication and craft of mosaic making

The course raises awareness of the need to learn effective communication in order to be successful in our social lives. By exploring different types of communication while creating a mosaic, participants will analyse skills that make their communication effective. The skills can be compared to a pieces of mosaic – we can observe the colour and the shape of a single piece, but only a complete picture of assembled pieces together give us aesthetic satisfaction. The same with the communication – only understanding the mechanism behind communication and engaging the skills efficiently we can achieve effective communication. The course methodology is unique in a way that participants not only improve their understanding of effective communication but also learn the craft of mosaic making.
eTwinning is an important component of the course work where participants share their daily learning ideas. It also serves as monitoring and dissemination tool.

Objectives
Understand the importance of effective communication in the European context;
Work in collaboration with other participants developing communication skills;
Participate in the international and intercultural exchange.
Understand the benefits and pitfalls of cross-cultural communication;
Develop a plan how to promote opportunities for children and young people to engage in effective cultural dialogue.

Preparation
Familiarise yourself with the course materials.
Introduce yourself to other participants explaining what makes you unique as a person and a representative of your country.

Follow-up
After the course participants will reflect on the gained knowledge and its application in their own educational environment. They will complete a report to be sent to their national agency and the course organiser. The trainers will provide support for collaboration between participants encouraging them to initiate eTwinning or school partnership projects and help to find partners.

I learned a lot about communication, creative ways to bring it in practice. Also learned a lot of the visit to the local school. Good organization.

I enjoyed learning about communication and the connection to art and mosaic in the afternoon. We covered all different kind of parts of communication. I enjoyed a lot the session were we all had to present a key competence in communication to the group. Also I found the session about intercultural communication very usefull. We are an muliticultural school and we got really good practices to use in class. The games and videos were really helpful to understand the topic. The mosaic is a kind of communication too, small pieces make a bigger picture. I also noticed this in our group, all theory about the communication we learned in the morning were used during the mosaic in the afternoon. All the mosaic techniques were really fun to learn. I am not really creative, but it was interesting to do for once. I enjoyed the time with the mosaic. The fact we gave our mosaic work to a local school as a gift is really a plus. We got in contact with locals, pupils and teachers and were able to share what we have learned, mosaic and communication techniques at the school. Learning outside in a outdoor classroom, learning through experience and learning from Rita was really educational, and useful in my class.
