Religious Changes and Political Implications: Europe 1500-1700

Age: 12,13,14
Project Year: 2012-13

The theme of the project was the Religious and Political Changes in England, Ireland and Europe 1500-

The aim of the project was to enhance the pupils' understanding of the causes, course and results of religious changes.

Pupils engaged in a number of activities:

  • Creation of Wikis,
  • Videoconferencing,
  • Use of discussion forums.
Collaboration was achieved through discussion forums and the creation of a collaborative wiki on the Ulster Plantations. These wikis focused on the Reasons for the Ulster Plantation, The Plantation of Derry/Londonderry and the Long and Short Term Results of the Plantations.

We used videoconferencing twice during the academic year.
We investigated two topics: the Reformations in Europe and England and the Ulster Plantations. During these videoconferences pupils were given the chance to discuss the causes, course and results of the these two events.

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.
