Medtwinning

Beginning phase (February 2007-Mid-March 2007)

1) getting to know partners by e-mail, with personal introductions (beginning March);
2) start selecting "cake" recipes to exchange (beginning March) together with an internet research on partner countries (Italy, Slovenia, Jordan);

Intermediate phase (Mid-March/End of April)

3) teachers will divide students in groups. Each of the three teachers will have his/her students translate their own national recipes into English, the vehicular language and then send them through to the other two teachers by e-mail. Chosen recipes will have to imply only assembling ingredients and/or baking them, possibly not frying, for students safety reasons (Mid March.)
4) Jordan schools will translate Jordan recipes in English, send them to Italy and Slovenia and will receive Slovenian and Italian recipes translated in English language in exchange. Everything will take place among teachers, for internet safety reasons (End of March - mid April).
5) Research on partner countries will take place and posters will be prepared describing partner countries in order to organize 3 exhibition, one in each school, on May 9th.

By mid-April max. end of April, all intermediate steps will have to be over with;

Advanced phase (8-9 May 2007)

5) Jordan students will bake Slovenian and Italian recipes, Slovenian students will bake Italian and Jordan ones, Italian students will bake Jordan and Slovenian ones. This will take place on May 8th. Children will bake cakes at home or at school (depending on school organization) to then eat them on May 9th to celebrate Europe Day, which may also be defined as "Medtwinning Day", in Jordan, perhaps, if you regard it as most proper. School or Class Exhibitions will show posters on partner countries and see the distribution of baked cakes; digital photographs will be taken and exchanged among the three teachers in charge, for publication on the dedicated web pages;

6) the number of recipes to be baked may vary, according to teachers' and students' needs;

7)digital pictures will be taken during preparation, paying attention not to photograph children's faces in a way they can be recognized, as Italian law forbids it (privacy law). The best way will be to take a picture without their face or from the back;

8) The Coordinator will prepare a main web page and every teacher will do the same with their own national page which will then be linked together.


Final phase

9) Digital pictures will be sent to partners for publication on web site;
10) if feasible, e-mails will be exchanged among students, through teachers, for safety reasons. If they wish they will proceed contact on their own, under parents' supervision and/or with their consent (Italian privacy law).
