Images and identity ( 142345 LLP-1-2008-1-UK- COMENIUS-CMP)

The project linked the disciplines of Art and Citizenship education, using digital technology as a means of expression and communication across Europe. It explored ways in which discussion and production of visual images pertaining to identity can contribute to Education for Democratic Citizenship (EDC). The link between art and citizenship education has not previously been investigated in the European context and this is a new area of curriculum development and research. The project trained teachers and teaching assistants in digital imaging processes, platforms and techniques as a medium of cross national communication. Throughout the project, the photo-sharing websiteFlickr and the virtual learning platform StudyZone (which has now changed to Moodle) were systematically employed to document the action in each country and facilitate sharing of information, visual resources and evaluation.
