Digital Dynamic Cultural Dialogue (Reunion)

Rating: 5/56 personas

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.

During this course, we learned many different things, all centred around the main subject of the course: social inclusion. Social inclusion involves feeling accepted within your local community and being able to contribute to society in a meaningful way, through participation in mainstream activities and exercising basic rights. To apply this concept to an educational system is very important when you have a job as a teacher. To include many different individuals among different cultures to the educational system is an challenging but very beautiful goal as a teacher. Through Rita’s program we had the opportunity to get familiar with different forms of cultural heritage by a learning by doing approach. Receiving insight in these different cultural aspects helps you to understand different cultures and how to include all of them. The different sessions we have done (as leaf weaving, hiking, listening to oral traditions etc.), really helped in providing you a better understanding of cultural heritage. I really do have an idea how to apply this knowledge in the future in the social culture in my classrooms to increase the level of social inclusion among the young individuals, since it’s important. This course is highly recommended.

Life is beautiful:- I have learned in this useful instructional cycle. How we work together, how to build the future Together I mean all nationalities with all kinds of traditions, customs and religions and the various tribal rituals that we have taken an inheritance by our ancestors and our heritage in the countries where we sprouted and then migrated to each other to live and seek welfare and safety and stability and carry with us a large amount of experience And trust

Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn. - Benjamin Franklin. During the course last week we have been able to discover many different sides of Reunion. All important parts of the culture and its origins have been reviewed: nature, music, traditions and history. The strong point of the course is the social inclusion of the local population. By hearing the stories, seeing the traditions and learning the crafts from the locals, you are really involved and you learn through experience. That is the most important thing for me personally: reading and acquiring knowledge is possible for everyone, but you don't get the feeling like when you learn and do according to the ways of the locals. Social inclusion makes the learning so much more effective.

During this course we learned a lot about tradition and culture in Reunion. What Creole is where it comes from. Creole is a mix of French, Indian and African culture and language. It was nice to see how it evolved all cultures into a culture that runs through the years. The most that impressed me is slavery, it was very interesting for me to know what slavery means here on island. What kind of person was Madame Desbassayns.

What is often neglected, however, is the equal importance of knowing one's own culture, values and beliefs in order to relate more effectively across cultural lines. Awareness of our own culture is important, because it can keep us from projecting our values onto others. Last week was about cultural heritage found on the Island of Réunion. Different workshops showed me a variety of different cultural examples. First we discovered some of the island, its nature, its roughness and of course, its beauty. Because nature has its influence on cuture, we joined some cultural workshops. Weaving palmleafs, slavery museum, music making and a walk through La Plaine des Palmistes. This whole combination gave me a good impression about how culture could exist on an island like this. Like I already have written, the whole mixture of culture (e.g. European, African, Indian and even Chinese) shows me that real culture is able to evolve and change. It was good! Tom Cuijpers

I really enjoyed this course and the learning by doing approach. I have learned a lot about different forms of cultural heritage and in particular intangible culture. We have seen examples of local Reunion music, crafts, oral traditions and general traditions. The good thing about the course is that you practice using ICT tools to convey information or cultural heritage in my lessons in the future. I also learned a lot about social inclusion that I can use in the future at school. This course on Reunion is highly recommended!
