Pupils from Knockaclarig NS, Ireland and Vindängen Sweden collaborate and build knowledge together. The foundation for the project is to produce, share and give feed back on media material. Another keystone for the projects is to use ICT tools at it best. Self produced films are to be used as a didactic tool when pupils work with themes chosen from syllabus. The media material is published and discussed on the project blog “http://blog.eun.org/film2/”. Two initiating themes are set. The Irish partnership is preparing “Wild Flowers of the Countryside”. Vindänge have initiated “A study on small animals in a pond next to school.” The work with these themes is to proceed during autumn term. Yet another object added to the project is to expand the concept share. Tutorials on how our work is done will be prepared. Teacher students from University will be included in eTwinning activities. Year 2006 Pupils learn from pupils about life in different parts of Europe by sharing self-made DVD film. Pupils produce films with a DVD camera about their local community, interests and daily activities, and share it with a friend. The film can be published on a local web-site, or distribute it on CD / DVD record. The film will be first step to establish contact between pupils, and their teachers. Further contact between the participants will be proceeding by mail.
