ICT tools for Preservation of Intangible Cultural Heritage

Location: Sainte-Anne, GUADELOUPE (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 cultural heritage in the digital age of globalisation. 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 learning-by-doing 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.
eTwinning is an important component of the course work where participants share their daily learning ideas. It also serves as monitoring and dissemination tool.

If the course is not listed in the Mobility Tool+ yet, please provide to your project coordinator the following course ID: 50563.

The main strength of the course is course organizer and trainer Rita Stoskiene who knows how to tell the story and explain to little details everything we wanted to know. . Rita is calm and ready to help with whatever xou ask or need. The second strength is the course program that is educational and interesting just like it is supposed to be. Guadeloupe as a course destination is also a great + not just because of beautiful beaches but because of their history and tradition, cultural heritage sites.It offers an insight to how schools work in some distant country and that we share same passion for work we do. I would definitively recommend this course to all teachers who are open minded and want to learn how to preserve the heritage and to see different culture, continent, people. Also because of great organization, communication, course program and structure.
