Online Projects

Dance against Corona, Collabowrite & Stories from Home are projects initiated or developed in March 2020 due to the threat of Corona-Virus. They were all dealing with on-line art-workshops and communication between workshop-leaders and participants from the exchanges.

Online Dance with Pako from Portugal is an online project, where every school day, EFA schools-parteners can offer their students 30 min of dancing with Pako in school time. This is a result of the partially online EFA project in September 2020. Beacuse the student groups could not travel, we connected online between countries and schools. We had both online and on-location warm-ups, workshops and meetings. We did learn that the students can benefit from great energy also through online medium, and now we are proud to be offering this posibility every day due to financial support from Guldborgsund Municipality.

Results

During the 5 years, 2015-19, with Exchanges for All cooperation the network has implemented in total 41 youth-exchanges, and more than 2.000 young people have had an experience for their life.

In January 2016 University College Absalon (DK) launched the report “International Exchanges as a Learning Tool”, which may be downloaded from here:  EFA MASTER 11.12.15_disc_bau.

In April 2016 the partnership behind “Exchanges for All” did get approved the project “Let’s do It” from EU-program “South Baltic”, which basically was a training-course for teachers in “International Project-Development and -Implementation”, but also launched the booklet “Let’s do It – Recommendations concerning Student-Mobility for Secondary Schools”, which was printed in 7 languages: DE, DK, EN, LT, LV, PL & SE and may be downloaded from here.

In October 2019 University College Absalon (DK) launched the report “Reach Out – A study of art-based transnational teaching and its implication for student learning and development”, which researched an alternative to the international exchanges: Workshops in schools with artists from other countries. The report may be downloaded from here.

In May and especially in September 2020 our exchanges were cancelled due to Corona / Covid-19, but 21-25.9.2020 we made another alternative to the exchanges and implemented 4 online camps, which were a mix of online cooperation on especially “Stop Climate Changes” and art-workshops, which for some was done online, but for others were directed by visiting workshop-leaders a la the above mentioned Reach Out.
