On the 7th of January, OTB Europe, together with partners from Poland, Greece, Spain and Cyprus have participated in the kick-off meeting for the Erasmus+ KA2 project “Social Radio 2.0: The European School Radio and Podcasting Community for Active Citizenship Education”. During the meeting, the partners did introductions, project overview and planning for the future. Furthermore, partners presented ongoing activities such as the creation of intellectual outputs and discussed the inner workings of the partnership in terms of visibility, management and communication.
The project seeks to introduce a holistic educational approach that will support schools and teachers foster citizenship education combining innovative pedagogy (project-based and experiential learning, design-thinking) with the extensive use of new media and technology. In particular, leveraging on the power of radio broadcasting and podcasts, our project envisions integrating citizenship education in school curricula in an effective and engaging way and creating an interactive space where young students become agents of change.
Due to the present pandemic conditions, the kick-off meeting took place online. Next meeting is scheduled to take place in Faro, in June 2021.
