Building Bridges

Age: 9,10
Project Year: 2012-13

A variety of topics were studied

The project was themed around finding out information about each other and building bridges. We aimed to provide each other with information about ourselves, our area, our cultures and money. The online activities were mainly using the wiki, blogs and forums and the children enjoyed the interaction online and meeting each other face-to-face at Dublin Zoo.

Face-to-face meeting

Venue: Dublin Zoo, Held at the end of April.
We chose Dublin Zoo as it was a halfway point for each school. We put the children into their Dissolving Boundaries Groups and spent the day looking at the animals and enjoying time together. At lunchtime all the children ate together and had a joint playtime.

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.
