Erfahrungsbericht eines Lehrers zum Workshop
Mag. Christian Handler, GRG Sachsenbrunn schrieb zur Idee der Projektwoche: “When I learned about the ‘roots and shoots’ projects I was impressed by the idea. As a teacher of English and Geography I like the idea of a global perspective and a better understanding of the natural and the human world. I think it is essential that young people are confronted with an outlook that goes beyond their daily routines. And then of course they can become active themselves in the spirit of Jane Goodall, who has set a powerful example through her life and work, which is offering inspiration and hope of a positive future on our planet. I’m looking forward to the project of the 8B, GRG Sachsenbrunn later this fall.”
Nach der Woche sendete er uns folgendes begeisterte Feedback: “As I could already sense at the presentation, you managed to create a relaxed and inspiring atmosphere the students really enjoyed. They also mentioned the much support you gave them concerning their individual topics. It is amazing how big your wealth and diversity experience is. What they also pointed out was the technical insight they got and what they learned about the art of film making. Besides, many enjoyed the fact that they could really use English most of the time. Some even mentioned that they started dreaming in English (during the night). I hope that especially producing a film made many of them focus on the message of their special interest, which will also be rewarding for their matura skills.”
Zu den Referenten
Die beiden Hauptverantwortlichen für das Projekt Gregory Kennedy-Salemi und Stuart Jolley, haben mehrjährige Erfahrung sowohl in der Durchführung von Schulworkshops als auch in der Erstellung von audiovisuellen Materialien zu diesem Themenbereich.
Gregory Kennedy-Salemi is a film maker and the Global Education Coordinator, for the JGI “Seeds Of Change” program and regularly conducts Global Education English project weeks throughout Austria and truly loves working with engaged teachers and students. Gregory studied computer science, international relations and peace studies at DePaul University, Chicago. In 2006 Gregory was invited to the United Nations to speak on the importance of Global Education. During our English Project Weeks we use English as a tool instead of learning a language for the sake of it. It becomes a medium for students to use while actively creating film projects and exploring real world issues that affect us all. It’s English with a meaningful purpose that inspires youth to actively pursue new goals with confidence. And we have discovered that when students have the chance to participate in real-world projects using our professional equipment in another language, they gain tremendous confidence.
