Title Augmented Reality towards better understanding of Online Identities
Project Number 2013-1-GR1-LEO05-13907
Project Type Projets de transfert d'innovation
Teaching traditionally is a very complex profession. And in our current fast, modern times teaching has become even more challenging. Students need an ever growing range of new skills that fall beyond the regular school curriculum scope.
The European project “IDentifEYE” provides tools for teachers to keep up with the needs of our times. It is developing a workshop in which teachers will learn about (online) identities, current societal contexts, modern prophylactics and new technologies by means of a collection of tested good practices. The workshop will support them to create their own subject-related lesson plan with the following aims: (1) to empower the dynamic nature of their students’ identities in order to improve the learning abilities of their students and (2) to provide insights in the dynamic nature of the societies in which their students live in order to trigger student reflection.
The current idea for a Transfer of Innovation proposal originates from a project under the Fundament Rights and Citizenship programme which completed in August 2012. The title of the project was "Children, Data and Emerging Identities" which supported activities that implement best practices and tools for professionals working with and for children in communicating with children in a way adapted to their age and stages of development and thus improve the quality of teaching and learning in the classroom.
Moreover, the project supported activities designed to identify and develop effective approaches to involve children more in the teaching process by capitalising on Augmented Reality and new media technologies to deliver a lasting educational experience.
