Pupils will have to make investigations ( inchiesta giornalistica ) , gather information about the job's  evolution from ancient times till today, write articles, make videos in the field of AGRICOLTURA, PESCA, ZOOTECNIA, ARTIGIANATO, SERVIZI, TECNOLOGIA.


Pupils will be able to relate jobs  with local history, examining the social conditions of the past as well as with economic and technological evolution. By doing  this, pupils will discover their traditions, the jobs customs of past generations and the traditions of partners by exchanging information with them.

They will make comparisons among different countries and different time periods, to find resemblances and differences.

Teachers of any country and their pupils work together to create an e-journal (a common on-line diary, newspaper or magazine).

    A/ suggested check-list for teachers

    Initially teachers should meet in the Twinspace staffroom and decide on which aspect of this topic they wish to work on. As it is a wide topic it is important that the parameters are set early on within the project planning.

    1st step:
    In order to break the ice among the pupils and have them easily divided into groups we propose one of the ice-breaking or grouping activities proposed in the eTwinning portal – starter kits.

    2nd step:
    Pupils should get familiarised with the use of the TwinSpace and the Pupils Corner and explore its possibilities. In this stage we propose a free communication among the pupils and an exchange of opinions for their daily life. Pupils should learn about Netiquette and Internet Safety. You can use some of the short activities proposed in the eTwinning portal – starter kits.

    3rd step:
    Pupils learn about the aims and objectives of the program and learn about research. If the research includes the exploitation of Internet resources, we advise the pupils to study the relevant guidelines on the safe and effective research

    4th step pupils write the article within their own school and, once published on-line, they share and discuss it with partners abroad
