ACT! for Liberty
Young people discuss various topics related to liberty while participating in an online game called “The Boiling Frog”. They pick most important topic for them and create a poster attracting attention to this problem. The posters will be distributed in their local community.
→ citizenship: it makes young people aware of their rights and responsibilities related to liberty
→ digital literacy: youngsters participate in a digital game
→ creativity: they need to visualise (draw) the topics that matter for them
→ community project: distribution of their posters in their local community
Every project consists of 5 lessons, including home works and community activity. They utilise the Blended Learning approach – a combination of teacher-led virtual and in-class lessons, individual tasks and group work offline and online. However, the final decision on the format is up to a teacher, based on resources and technology availability.
