OECE - Opera and Early Childhood Education: Building European Awareness through Music in Pandemia Times

“Opera and Early Childhood Education: Building European Awareness through Music in Pandemia Times” is a 2-year Erasmus+ Project coordinated by Universidad de Oviedo in Spain. It counts on five more partner organizations from Spain, Italy and Bulgaria: Fundación Ópera de Oviedo, Read more Universita’ Degli Studi di Milano-Bicocca, Associazione Lirica e Concertistica Italiana (ASLICO), Academiya za Muzikalno and State Opera – Plovdiv. OECE is in line with the objectives of the European policies linked to the Erasmus + Program. Our motivation is to achieve social inclusion and the creation of quality educational content in challenging times such as this pandemic Codiv-19 situation, making use of music as a vehicle for knowledge in Early Childhood Education. We pretend Opera, European Cultural Heritage, to be the perfect tool for providing an inclusive and European-unity sense society through multimedia tools. Our main objectives are: 1. To promote and generalize Opera as a means of inclusion of disadvantaged population, specially from rural areas; 2. To design and plan educational experiences related to opera that make it possible to alleviate the access to culture in general, and music in particular, of children in Early Childhood Education in rural areas during pandemia times such as the current one; 3. To stimulate the taste for quality (and non-elitist so far) music in Early Childhood Education (0-6 years old) through Opera in (non-existent so far) formal and online education practices: Opera as European Cultural Heritage, a high-quality music tool available to all children and a means of almost perfect expression for toddlers through their voice, rhythm and body expression competences; 4. To improve the development of children’s musical, cognitive, psychomotor, linguistic and emotional competences; 5. To develop online and face-to-face training actions aimed at Early Childhood Education educators to promote their music didactic skills; 6. To offer multimedia didactic resources that promote the development of musical skills in Early Childhood Education; 7. To encourage and support parents with no music background on their key role for the cultural education of their children; 8. To get toddlers familiarized with high quality music education for further make them aware of its European singularity for the sake of social cohesion; 9. To promote the relationship between schools and families. The most important group of participants in this project are children in Early Childhood Education centers. The project selected three rural schools in the area of partner universities and Opera Houses. In total, 60 children, their parents and educators. For them, this project is presenting an innovative proposal around a genuine opera adaptation for children in Early Childhood Education. This project is developing a Training Methodology for educators and an Educational Methodology for Children based on the opera adaptation; video-tutorials and their own training methodology for educators as well as for Parents and Other Family Members; an App Designed for Schools, Families and Children, which presents music from a playful perspective that will democratize children's approach to Opera; and ScreeningOpera, final opera performances (based on a co-production by Universidad de Oviedo, Ópera de Oviedo, ASLICO and State Opera in Plovdiv) face-to-face or on streaming, depending on the development of Covid-19. Children will attend the Opera House to watch and listen to the opera production with their parents. The opera performance will also be available on streaming for those children and families unable to assist, as well as having in mind the continuation of these pandemic times. One of the main strengths of the project resides in its multidisciplinarity: Musicology, Music Education, Lyric Theater, Research and Diagnostic Methods in Education, Speech and Language Therapy, and Physical Education and Sport Division, which allows to face this task with a complementary perspective and greater capacity for solving and managing the project, as well as for solving possible difficulties that may arise during its execution. Innovation is given by both the interdisciplinary nature of this proposal: Music Education, Opera, Speech Therapy and Diagnostic Methods, Sports Education and Dance, and the creation of new materials around the opera in multimedia formats such as video-tutorials, streaming sessions or an App. The methodologies involved include the methods by Jacques Dalcroze, Karl Orff, Edgar Willems, Maurice Martenot, Jos Wuytack and Shinichi Suzuki, always designed to be presented face to face and online, just in case of pandemic times or simply difficulties derived from living in rural areas. This project makes it possible to respond to the children’s and families’, as well as educators', cultural and musical needs, especially in times of Covid-19, when access to culture is so limited and, at the same time, so necessary

ONE- The ONE Meeting Project

The rapid growth of communications technologies, the lowering costs of travel, increasing multilingualism and open borders have enabled greater transnational collaboration. Nobody has supported collaboration more than the European Union through projects and mobility grants. Yet as the scale of the Read more climate crisis becomes evident and EU and national governments adopt more ambitious environmental goals towards a climate neutral EU by 2050, we can no longer ignore the environmental impact of our European project work. Moreover, the recent epidemic of Covid-19 has cancelled hundreds of events and shows that we need to find alternatives for face-to-face meetings. Hence, the objective of the ONE project is to strengthen the ability to engage in productive virtual collaboration within strategic and structured international projects, so as to reduce the travel and related environmental impact, specifically: a) reach 600 European Project Managers and Staff and encourage them to engage in more productive virtual transnational collaboration, through improving their environmental and digital/managerial competences, b) equip 50 HE leaders and project managers with knowledge and motivation to change project policies and significantly reduce travel, c) provide 24 stakeholders proof of concept and scalable approach through our own piloting of this approach: we will show that Erasmus Strategic Alliances can be run with only ONE Transnational Partner Meeting per project by achieving it ourselves and sharing the lessons. Following rigorous review and testing three outputs are produced: IO1 “The Business Case for ONE-meeting projects” – A high profile report with supporting materials that raise awareness about the importance of introducing more virtual/remote meetings, IO2 “ONE Virtual Collaboration Toolkit” – A toolkit with practical guidance on how to integrate meeting, project planning, creativity and collaboration software and tools, IO3 “All-you-need-to-know Guide to Running ONE-meeting projects” – A practical guide presenting a step-by-step strategy for converting projects into “ONE meeting only” format. Outputs are used with the target groups via piloting activities, multiplier activities and dissemination: 600 European Projects Managers & Staff receive the results and are invited to use them, 50 HEIs commit to introducing ONE meeting projects format as their preferred EU project deliver mechanism, 24 Stakeholder organisations commit to support and incentivise organisations who prioritise climate goals in their project delivery. ONE involves direct participation via 1) consultation for IO2 & IO3 by at least 36 representatives from organisations who participate in EU Programmes – especially Erasmus+Strategic Partnerships and Knowledge Alliances, 2) user testing, which involves 24 EU project stakeholders in the research phase and 12 stakeholders in the peer review of IO1 and 24 organisations (HEI, VET Colleges, NGOs) for testing IO2 and IO3, 3) multiplier events with at least 260 representatives of HEIs, VET Colleges, Education Stakeholders, Funders, public authorities and other stakeholders in the six partner countries. On completion, the project will have made it possible for European Project Managers and HE staff to access effective, practical resources on digital communication/collaboration/creativity and project management competences which they can directly apply to their (future) international projects. The long-term result will be improved knowledge of the environmental issues relating to transnational travel; Improved knowledge regarding the advances in digital technology that make substituting face-to-face meetings with virtual communication and collaboration equally productive and more efficient. The project will also generate useful results for partner organisations to develop the digital skills of their own staff in for academic (teaching and research) purposes. As impact, European Project Managers will be able to significantly reduce travel to Project meetings with a corresponding reduction in environmental impact. HE leadership will benefit from practical, easy-to-implement solutions enabling them to emerge as forward thinking, digitally proficient organisations showing climate leadership. HE & EU stakeholders will have their “Proof of Concept” showing that policy change is possible, aided by practical guidance they can share with their grantees/members. The impact at local and regional level is through the ability of Project managers and Staff to engage with the outputs of the project. It also provides a reliable means of advancing systemic changes in approaches to how transnational projects are conceived, planned and delivered at national and international level given the high relevance both of the climate crisis but also of digital skills to the demands of our contemporary European economy, and the involvement of key stakeholders in education in the project.

Radical Translations: The Transfer of Revolutionary Culture between Britain, France and Italy (1789-1815)

'Radical Translations’ seeks to map the impact of translation on revolutionary thought and politics. It aims to reposition the role of translators not as passive collaborators but as active key cultural mediators seeking to spread democratic ideas into new contexts Read more – an idea as contested then as now. Who were the militant translators? What did they translate? How can translation, including its misappropriations and failures of communication, help us understand how cultural politics works in practice?

Teaching to Be: Supporting Teachers’ Professional Growth and Wellbeing in the Field of Social and Emotional Learning

“Teaching to Be” is a European Policy Experimentation project initiative. The project aims to support school teachers’ career improvement by exploring innovative professional development practices to foster and improve teachers’ professional wellbeing. The project is led by Ministries of Education from Lithuania, Latvia, Read more Portugal and Slovenia, in cooperation with several universities and teams of experts in teacher education and mental wellbeing from 8 countries: Lithuania, Latvia, Slovenia, Portugal, Italy, Spain, Austria and Norway. Teachers’ stress and burnout are major concerns all across Europe and worldwide, causing serious challenges to teachers’ health and the school systems. Moreover, increased focus on social and emotional competences across Europe poses new challenges for teachers in maintaining their own wellbeing and delivering effective teaching. In order to foster teachers’ professional wellbeing and promote practices to support it, the project will develop and examine a set of innovative professional development measures: - An Online Course on Teachers’ Professional Wellbeing, which will help develop teachers’ practical skills for sustaining their wellbeing through self-regulated learning; - A Participatory Action Research (PAR) Guide for Schools which will help school communities to work together on school issues, improve professional wellbeing and develop new professional skills for teachers and school leaders. The project will explore how and to what extent these practices affect teacher’s wellbeing indicators and school level factors. A mixed-methods experimental research, combining a quasi-experimental intervention study (QE) and a qualitative Participatory Action Research (PAR) study in schools will be conducted in 8 countries. Project actions will involve school teachers, school leaders and other school community members. The outcomes of the project will help promote policies for teachers’ professional wellbeing and will support the systemic teaching and learning of Key-competences in schools.

C4S- COMMUNITIES FOR SCIENCES

AIM: Communities for Sciences (C4S) will be developed in 9 European cities (Milan -Italy-, Brussels -Belgium-, Manresa - Spain-, Vic – Spain-, Vienna -Austria-, Budapest -Hungary-, Sofia -Bulgaria-, Lund -Sweden- and Berlin -Germany) and their areas of influence. The activities that will Read more be implemented will be coordinated by a local Hub in 6 cities with the leadership of one of these local partners of the Consortium. Each Hub will focus on a specific vulnerable community (immigrants, Roma community and disabled citizens) working with and for children and youth aged from 0-16 years old and their families. C4S will study the relationships between science and society by focusing upon vulnerable communities due to the fact that they are often not visible as active social agents. It is necessary not only to create activities for them, but also to include them as co-participants of these activities in order to ensure a more coherent approach towards inclusive education and to promote anticipatory policy-making. This will be done through science education activities, through formal and non-formal educational institutions, from an inclusive standpoint, to provide them with better science awareness and capacities and to make them progressively aware of exclusionary practices that at times may occur in science. Special emphasis will be put on engaging them in an intersectional approach to fight against the gender discrimination suffered by women and girls on multiple levels. In addition to this, each HUB will engage with policy-makers, educators and institutional representatives to promote their role in supporting and promoting an inclusive science education approach and to consolidate such inclusive practices on more solid grounds.
