Dall’anno scolastico 2018/2019 il nostro Istituto è partner di un progetto europeo Erasmus+, a conferma del costante interesse che il “Regina Margherita” ha nella promozione di attività formative che forniscano agli studenti gli strumenti di conoscenza e le competenze necessarie a diventare cittadini europei consapevoli e attivi.

Il progetto SMILE è nato dall’idea che siamo parte di un sistema economico e geopolitico globale. Alle nostre scuole viene richiesto di promuovere tra gli studenti una sempre maggiore conoscenza e consapevolezza dei cambiamenti globali, ma anche di prepararli ad affrontare con successo le sfide proposte da una società che diventa sempre più multietnica e multiculturale. Da ciò nasce il bisogno di formare studenti sempre più aperti alla diversità e capaci di cooperare e convivere con individui di altre nazionalità e culture senza dimenticare la dimensione culturale e identitaria a cui appartengono.

Il progetto coinvolge 5 Paesi: Grecia, Cipro, Spagna, Portogallo e Italia. Scuola capofila è la Music School di Vartholomio (Grecia). Le scuole coinvolte hanno tutte dipartimenti di musica, teatro e danza.

Tutti i materiali delle attività svolte saranno disponibili sul blog appositamente creato per il progetto erasmussmile.blogspot.com , accessibile a tutti e sul Twinspace di etwinning www.etwinning.net , accessibile agli iscritti alla piattaforma.

Le classi coinvolte sono le terze classi del Liceo Musicale e Coreutico che si confronteranno sul tema della musica e della danza come linguaggi universali che superando tutte le barriere, fisiche e non, permettono l’incontro tra gli esseri umani e come il mare creano vie di comunicazione tra i popoli. L’inglese sarà la lingua veicolare del progetto

From the school year 2018/2019, our school is one of the partners of an Erasmus Plus project, as evidence of the continuous interest Regina Margherita High School has had in promoting educational activities and giving students more and more knowledge tools and skills to become aware and active European citizens.
SMILE project has spread from the idea that we are part of a global economic and geopolitical system. In so many words, we are becoming one world. Our schools are being asked to instill in our children not only an awareness and appreciation for changing global circumstances, but also to prepare them to successfully deal with challenges presented by an increasingly multiethnic and multicultural community. We need to make our students tolerant and receptive to coexisting and cooperating with students of various nations and cultures.
The project involves 5 countries: Greece, Spain, Portugal, Cyprus and Italy. The leading school is the Vartholomio Music School ( Greece). All the involved schools have Music Dance and Drama Departments. All materials of activities will be on the specially made blog erasmussmile.blogspot.com , available to everybody and on Twinspace of etwinning www.etwinning.net ,only available to subscribers.

The third classes of our Music and Dance Courses have been involved in this project.
We decided to demonstrate what the elements that can help nations come together and overcome any prejudices are elements directly connected to our school curricula and our countries' geographical position. These elements are music and sea. Music has always been viewed as a powerful tool in breaking barriers and promoting cross-cultural appreciation. There is a long and strong history of all our countries using music as a vehicle to promote cultural understanding. Music is the universal language with an appeal that transcends language, cultural or religious boundaries. Engaging in musical activities with people of another culture or country can increase cultural understanding and tolerance. In addition, the sea unites people and countries across the globe.
Thus, teachers of our project will develop transdisciplinary thinking and use innovative teaching methods and skills that will prepare students for lifelong learning in an undisciplined world. We will also use storytelling, a technique which through narrative let people share and interpret experiences. Human knowledge is based on stories and stories mirror human thought; they can help people organize and understand facts and can be universally shared, so bridging cultural and linguistic barriers.
Being in contact with people from other cultures and discovering how they deal with the same subjects is essential for our students. It will be motivating for all the school community (parents, teachers, students, etc) to feel that we share the same needs and objectives as the rest of the European countries, promoting in this way a sense of European awareness, so necessary for the future of the younger generations. We find it of paramount importance to create an inclusive and global society in which problems are dealt with equally and solutions are found everywhere.
