    Find Your Way

    With Find Your Way we worked on ORIENTATION as an universal competence and a key feature of Learn-to-learn. Orientation was considered from two main perspectives: the geographical approach - environmental discovery of familiar and non familiar places (school, neighbourhood, region, partner countries and Europe) - and the social approach - finding lines of orientation in peer group, class and school, experiencing cooperative learning, recognizing one’s own and others’ attitudes and skills, “walking in someone else’s shoes”. ORIENTEERING was the central part of the project and was used as a field of training for independent learning. It met the child’s need to explore and be active; it strengthened environmental knowledge and fostered respect for nature; it was practiced in different ways by children of different ages and skills; it enhanced the development of the child as a citizen through cooperation for performance, self involvement for goal achievement, personal responsibility and fairness. It was easily linked to the national curriculum of each school; it was a cross curricular itself. In “Rallies” children learned how to draw and read maps to “navigate” in nature and town; they leart about their own area and about their partners’ places and life; they used English as the common language in communication and in CLIL activities, and ICT to share information about themselves and their territory. Results for further use are portfolios on "Life Skills from Orienteering: Experiences of Orientation at School and Guidelines to promote a culture of Orienteering at primary school level". Specific activities resulting in a FYW Logo, Partnership Puzzles, common Song and Dance fostered enthusiasm and identification in the Project and Partnership.
