The projects focused on social and educational values in European heritage, especially the female role models. It addressed gender equality in regards to professional aspirations and more specifically, ICT – digital competences.
The initiative involved 139 lower secondary students, 27 teachers and 59 hosting families.
Utilising project-based learning, we placed students at the forefront of collaboration within multinational teams through our four TwinSpaces. This approach incorporated both cross-curricular lessons and multidisciplinary methodologies.
Our students actively engaged in face-to-face interactions, interviewing professional women and gaining first-hand experience at their workplaces, which included research centres, museums, and universities. Additionally, they participated in workshops hosted by these accomplished women.
We highlighted the extraordinary contributions of European women in history and modern professions, igniting students' aspirations within these innovative settings. Through multinational student teams, we nurtured collaboration and digital skills, enabling inventive project creations that celebrate professional women's achievements.
Lastly, our products are translated into four languages for broad accessibility, spreading empowerment and gender equality within diverse innovative environments.
Teachers played a pivotal role in the project. They coordinated activities, structured the TwinSpace, and guided students through project-based learning. They also presented the project at school meetings and as exemplary teaching practices in teachers training courses.
