STORY CHANGERS - Enhancing Pupils’ Social Skills and Enriching Teaching Methods Through Storytelling and Virtual Reality

Type: LLP-ERASMUS

Period:
1 Dec 2020 - 31 Mar 2023

Story Changers is a KA201 - Strategic Partnerships for school education project (01.12.2020-31.03.2023), co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union, which consists of eight partners from five different EU countries (Cyprus, France, Greece, Malta and Spain) and is coordinated by MMC Management Centre Ltd.

The project targets pupils and teachers of primary education and aims at the development of pupils’ social skills through a combination of Storytelling and Virtual Reality.

Project’s objectives
By the end of the project, pupils are expected to:

  • To enhance their social skills, such as empathy, critical thinking, problem solving, accepting diversity, self-consciousness etc.
  • To discover the power of Storytelling and be inspired to use it in their everyday life as well as in their future life (studies, professional career)
  • To acquaint themselves with new and innovative technologies, upgrading their digital/ICT skills

By the end of the project, teachers are expected to:

  • To upgrade their teaching skills through integrating the concept of Storytelling in their teaching
  • To acquaint themselves with new and innovative teaching methods which combine storytelling and interactive VR scenarios and hence upgrade their digital/ICT skills
  • To enhance skills such as creativity and flexibility and integrate them in their daily classroom practice

The aforementioned objectives will be achieved through the creation of ten “You Tell” stories, a series of interactive stories for primary education pupils with several alternative plots to be chosen by pupils based on their social skills and values. Five of these “You Tell” stories will be converted to interactive VR scenarios. The stories and VR interactive scenarios, along with other deliverables (e.g., icebreakers, guides), will be included in the teaching package compiled to be used by teachers inside and outside the consortium for the development of their pupils’ social skills.

Partners of the project are: M.M.C. Management Center Limited (Cyprus), EUROCIRCLE ASSOCIATION (France), OMEGATECH (Greece), Apostolos Varnavas Primary School (Cyprus), St. Joseph Mater Boni Consilii School (Malta), Iera Moni Agiou Iosif / Ellinogalliki Scholi Jeanne D’ Arc (Greece), Escola A. Aguilera/Escola Sant Josep (Spain), Mythos: Center for the Study and Dissemination of Myths and Folktales (Greece).

The Story Changers project is implemented with the support of the European Commission.
