"Women's rights and stereotypes" is my eTwinning Project Plan for five Upper Secondary Schools from Greece, Italy, Germany, Bulgaria and Portugal.
Participate 20 students of 17 years old.
"Women's rights and stereotypes" is an etwinning project about women's role over the centuries. Students will focus on women’s stereotypes which shaped her gender and gender differences. They will make an inquiry on great women of history and women in labor market.
Students will develop Intercultural communication between their European partners and competence skills: collaboration and critical thinking. They will practice foreign languages and develop ICT skills using web 2.0 tools. They will share their findings. They will develop self-confidence and build trust among their partners.
Partners communicate using eTwinning desktop and social media (close group on Facebook, Skype, e-mail) to establish a direct communication between the participating schools.
Shortly after the approval of the project, on line partner teachers’ meeting to organize the timeline and finilize the activities .
The coordinator teachers arrange videoconferences between the partner schools giving pupils the chance to get to know each other, share opinions and practice foreign languages.
Regular online chat sessions on Skype, appear.in or Chat room of TwinSspace.
On line students’ meetings once a month.
Pupils present themselves, their school, their homeland, their hometown.
Students will be divided in five multi-national groups of four students each.

2nd group Great women
Collaborate with your fellow students and search for five great women from the past. Discuss and decide how to present their work in the class. Was their life easy? What obstacles did they have to overcome to succeed? Make a collage with important moments of their life. You can dramatize their lives and present a brief period to the other groups. Personal and peer assessment.

5th group Women in the Media
Gender stereotypes and roles are learned and reinforced through the media. Through the media people are given examples on what it means to identify as either male or female and know what they should do and how they should act. Watch some advertisements on TV. How would you describe the women participating? Create an advertisement and present it to the other groups. Use a mindmap for brainstorming. Use designapp.io to create the advert. logo, Kizoa to create the video and Vimeo to upload the video on the TwinSpace.
All groups collaborate, discuss and decide how to poduce a video or a final presentation and upload it on their school’s web site using Prezi, Powtoon, Thinkling or Animoto.
