Developing eco-awareness and eco-schooling ideas

"Unirea" College organized the first LTT (Learning Teaching Training) called "Developing eco awareness and eco schooling ideas" of the Erasmus+ project "Ecogames in my Curriculum" 2021-2-PL01-KA220-SCH-000050266 – Cooperation partnerships in school education. After the warm welcome offered by the students of the college to foreign guests, a short but extremely well received artistic program took place. Then, we proceeded to the presentation of the activities and partners in the project. The LTT program started with an exhibition event focused on circular economy, where our students presented the stands with the "zero waste" kits developed within the companies run by members of our school's entrepreneurship club. Together with our project partners, we participated in two training sessions in the field of circular economy businesses and a lesson on reducing food waste. A workshop on "Electricity from renewable resources" followed, with teamwork activities with the students in the project for the development of solar panels. The robotics and 3D modeling clubs have demonstrated the products obtained in recent years – the model of a "green" car with hydrocarbon-free engines (project awarded at a national competition last school year), a drone, a robotic arm, etc. After a session of planting an oak tree in the schoolyard by each team from the five countries, followed by a gardening workshop with vegetable seeds and herbs in recyclable pots. In the evening we went to Cucuteni for an outdoor history lesson on the archaeological site here and then to a Cucuteni clay crafting workshop together with the international plastic artist, Mrs. Ionela Sandrina Mihuleac.The first day ended with presentations of the Romanian education system and the Beech Tree Nature Reserve in Tătăruși and a feedback session for the first day of mobility in our school.

During 5 days, Technical College CF "Unirea" provided guidance and served as an educational guide for a wonderful and well-knit group of friends coming from the four partner countries, within this exciting and interesting project.


Developing Digital Ecogames

The theme of water was chosen for the activities in Brindisi. Consistent with the topic, the first to be tested was the indoor game The Mystery of Castel del Monte, which connects history topics with art history and UNESCO heritage, using a methodology between debate and gamification. Castel del Monte is a UNESCO monument whose history is controversial, therefore, starting from the scholars' discussion about its original function, a game-contest was prepared between teams who, by discussing various interpretative hypotheses, earned points according to the strength of their arguments. After this first game, a visit to the monument provided support for the various conjectures on which the teams challenged each other as, using photos taken of the monument (photo safari), the teams prepared a digital 'Guess what' game to make their position on the interpretation of Castel del Monte's function clear. The winning team received as a prize a model of the monument made with TinkerCAD and printed in 3D. On the same theme of water, the digital game, the Nearpod….on water waste was played  Similarly, the outdoor games were set up: team game in the form of a relay race to reconstruct the map of the garden around the Seaman's Monument (site observation);  team game to mark on the newly reconstructed map the position of certain signs called “lanterns” (recognition of natural and man-made elements);  teams exchange maps and must find the lanterns placed by their opponents (recognition and interpretation). The lanterns carry a clue-phrase for the next game.  The teams completed the text provided by the game master, on the theme of water saving, using the clues found along the way.  Photographic treasure hunt in Brindisi, whose stops were: the port, the fountains of Brindisi, and the limestone basins of the Roman era. During the LLTA in Brindisi there were workshops on the most widely used applications for game-based learning: Genially, Nearpod, TinkerCAD, Cospaces.
