This learning playlist contains almost 20 online tools which can be used at various stages of the youth exchange. These tools are presented at each "Star of Europe" playlist. Here you have all the tools in one place. You can use some of the tools for various moments of the project. Just choose what makes sense and how that tool can increase involvement young people and partners or how can it spark learning in a youth exchange project.
Activities to complete
Complete the following activities, earn badges and you will see your playlist progress updated
Padlet is an application for creating online boards that you can use to display information for any topic. Easy to create an account and build a new board. You can add images, links, videos, and more.
Create headings for different days of the project so that people could work together and add different methods and activities to them. For example, Arrival Day - Name Games and Group Building; people share ideas for name games and Group Building activities. Always keep the topic in mind and make sure that activities connect in some way. You can move them from day to day, up and down until you think you have a programme that looks and feels like the right one.
Young people can select the ones they are most interested in and the ones they can actively help to implement or supervise during the exchange. Methods can include photography, visits, comics, plasticine, use of newspapers, participation of people outside the partner groups, debate, online quizzes, simulation games, opinion polls on a street, competitions, outdoor events, music, theatre, interviews, team work, designing a poster, production of flyers, environmental art, comparison of things, videos, role plays, demonstration… can you come up with more? Using Padlet you get to see the balance of possible activities and methods for the whole week.
