Pinocchio 2.0 is a Multimedia Content Management housing and displaying of records from the Italian educational projects inspired by ER, and stores material from several subjects (language and literature, language’s analysis, artistic education). These records pertain to fables, narrations, stories, robotics projects, robotics kits design, handbooks, and many of the educational activities envisaging in some way the role of reproducible elements, and little interactive artifacts: the idea of the robot.The project is tuned on the spirit of the Web 2.0; the Internet is used “to do”, but specially “to do together”. Students link up to Pinocchio 2.0 not only to check out for information, or to witness about their work, not only to simply exchange information: every member involved finds the way to “do together”, to share and co-design.
Hankkeen keskeisenä tavoitteena on etsiä ja löytää pedagogisesti perusteltuja ratkaisuja yhteisöllisen median välineiden ja ohjelmistojen hyödyntämiseen perusopetuksessa. Koulu 3.0 -hankkeen myötä on saatu kokemuksia monenlaisista tekniikoista ja mahdollisuuksista hyödyntää niitä luokkaopetuksessa ja verkko-opetuksessa sekä monimuoto-opetuksessa. Nämä on koottuna Koulu 3.0 -hankkeen työtapapankkiin. Koulu 3.1 -hanke syventää aiemmin toteutettujen hankkeiden tavoitteita.
Students collaborate together using a Ning online social media environment to share day to day and cultural information. Although the teachers moderate the Ning, students work together in groups to share their informaion in a relaxed and flexible environment where Web 2.0 can easily integrated.
This is a global classroom project where students between the ages of 13 and 15 years old will connect together to discuss simple cultural elements of life such as:
Project ideas that have worked well globally include:
What type of clothing are you wearing today? What does your school uniform look like? What is the latest fashon? Do you follow the fashons? What do clothes tell you about a person? Can we tell the season by the clothes we wear?
Share what a typical dinner is like for your family. Share some of your favorite recipes.
3. School Days
What does a typical day at school look like for you?
Students will share what their hobbies are and what they do in their free time.
What type of games do students like to play? (sports, electronic, board, etc.)
Students will share Interesting facts about their area.
What celebrations and traditions do you participate in with your family or community?
If we were to come visit, where would you take us?
9. 'How do I spend my time' - a project where students keep a record of their what they do in their time for one week, produce a spreadsheet with graphs and develop a poll daddy survey from their results. They then publish their findings using a variety of Web 2.0 tools.
10. 'Let me help you'- a project where students produce resources that help others learn specific topics of their choice.
- Each school will arrange their students into groups of 3 to 5 students.
- Each student group will allocate a student manager or leader who will either make a discussion forum in the StudentGroups area at http://webtowhere.ning.com/group/studentgroups or select one that already exists to join (each group may have more than one student manager).
In each group discussion forum:
- Members of each group will introduce themselves and describe their theme eg their closet.
- Once in a group students should remain in that group but they may also join more than one group.
- Group members should upload pictures of what they are wearing (from the neck down or blur out any faces.
- Group members upload pictures of their closet.
NOTE: No identifiable pictures, no faces of people and no personal information may be published on this Ning.
Reţelele sociale şi didactica limbilor străine: predarea limbii italiene ca limbă străină cu ajutorul Ning
Faptul de a putea crea reţele sociale ad hoc pentru propria clasă oferă noi oportunităţi de experimentare şi testare în predarea unei limbi străine, sporind posibilitatea de a îmbunătăţi legăturile dintre studenţi şi punând în practică competenţe de limbă într-o manieră stimulantă şi activă, aşa cum este ilustrat în experienţa didactică prezentată aici.

Social media enable human relationships through technology. In other words, social media are the media for social interaction. The two most visible applications of social media are the building and consolidation of friendships among youngsters, and the building of networks for career development. The two “hottest” applications of social media are marketing and advertising for political/ideological purposes. In social media, just as occurs with the Web2.0, users have become producers and co-creators.
The Links-up (Learning 2.0 for an Inclusive Knowledge Society - Understanding the Picture) and the FREE (Fostering Return to Employment through Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Creativity) projects, two outstanding EU funded initiatives, are organising their closing events on 22-23 September 2011 at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics, in Building A (20-22 Egry J. Street, H-1111 Budapest, Hungary) to offer their audiences their highly valuable research findings, products and services. Both the Links-up and the FREE projects are co-funded by the European Commission’s Lifelong Learning Programme and will be finishing shortly after this jointly organised conference.
Web 2.0 for Social Inclusion
The Links-up Final Conference, titled “Web 2.0 for Social Inclusion: Bridging Practices and Policies” will draw a picture of the ‘landscape’ of ‘Learning 2.0 for Inclusion’ by reviewing what has been done in the academic and research field, and what has been achieved by practitioners working on the ground in projects that have been using Web 2.0 to work with disadvantaged groups. Links-up will also report on a series of ‘action research experiments’, collaborating with ‘live pilot’ projects working in the field, to evaluate the added contribution Web 2.0 can make to practices that use learning to support social inclusion. Links-up, therefore, contributes to build a grounded as well as integrated evidence base in the field of Web 2.0, Learning 2.0 and Inclusion 2.0 in order to formulate realistic and feasible recommendations for future political actions and practical interventions.
Entrepreneurship, innovation and creativity
The FREE International Seminar offers in its programme a workshop where participants will have an opportunity to carry out in depth exploration of the features and contents of the FREE Interactive Tool, developed for the benefit of counsellors, tutors, trainers and other professionals working with unemployed people interested in starting a business. This experimentation will be facilitated by the members of the project partnership. In a following round table discussion you may exchange your opinion and experiences with your colleagues about the previously discussed or other related topics.
Synergies between and beyond
The two projects join forces in offering specifically dedicated sessions, where you will be introduced to other projects and initiatives that have similar focus to that of the FREE and Links-up. Would you have something relevant to contribute or share, bring your flyers and make sure you have enough business cards to give to the colleagues you will meet during these two busy days.
The participation at both events is free of charge, however only pre-registered participants may attend and the places are limited. To safeguard your attendance, please fill in the online registration form not later than 12 September 2011. Would you have any questions or enquiries about the projects and the detailed programmes of the two days, please contact Gábor Cser at email@example.com.
Young people with fewer opportunities learning languages informally: perceptions and uses of ICT and social media
We hope that this study will be of interest to language teachers, teacher trainers and also to individuals working with younger people with fewer opportunities in youth centres and schools, as it sheds light on how this population use and practice different languages with the use of social media and through other informal means. We also attempt to provide insights on how informal ICT-supported language learning can ease the passage to formal language learning
