– Main objectives of the Virtual Exchange
To provide students with opportunities to develop intercultural communicative competence and critical digital literacies in the context of global citizenship education.
– Targeted learning outcomes
Upon completing the project, students should be able to:
(1) self-assess intercultural communicative competence in cross-cultural interaction and teamwork.
(2) critically use and evaluate digital tools and demonstrate critical (digital) literacies in collaboration and co-co-creation of multimodal texts.
(3) demonstrate understanding of interconnections between global issues and local contexts.
– Global task description
Urban landscape and cultures offer rich opportunities for learning about who we are as local and global citizens in our contemporary world. The guiding question in this project is: How can we use the city as a text and a resource to gain better understanding of how global issues operate in our local contexts.
The project is informed and framed by the United Nations’ sustainable development Goal 11: “Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.”
Students engage in a sequence of three tasks: (1) connecting; (2) comparing and collaborating; (3) co-creating.
