The Beautiful North West

Age: 12,13
Project Year: 2010-11

Producing a multimedia DVD for tourism in the North west region.

At the start of the project the schools got to know each other by using the forums and filling in the wiki profiles. In starting the project students shared initail ideas using the forums. Students then planned sample websites in groups using PowerPoint and they posted these in Moodle for their partner school to examine and comment on.

Face-to-Face

Throughout the year, these schools hosted two face-to-face meetings. For the first meetimg the students from Milford travelled to Derry. Students took part in a tour of the walls, Bowling lunch and shopping in the Foyle side. The second meeting involved an enterprise talk by the owner of Media Box, Joanne Sweeney. One teacher explained that Joanne “runs a company that does what the students are trying to do – solve a business problem by producing a multimedia product”.

Schools Involved

Media Gallery

For Dissolving Boundaries Day 2014 we invited schools to send us short video recordings that show what DB means to them. We've pieced these together into a movie!

A documentary about linking schools through ICT; case studies of cross-border links between Northern Ireland and Ireland in the Dissolving Boundaries programme and in Israel through the TEC program.
