project   Culture through my Lens
Photography is an art and not just a grabbed image. A photograph can make the invisible visible, it can help us speak our heart to the others and communicate across the globe. It is the actual way of life, the way you see life and everything around you. Through this online collaboration, we aim to see the diverse cultures through the lens, by capturing and sharing with our peers. This will facilitate help create an entirely new class of imaging platform that has an understanding of the world. Students will enjoy exploring the culture of their own country as well as of other countries through still pictures captured on different themes assigned.

project   Grandma's Kitchen – A Global Recipe Book
Food gives universal experiences which help us to build strong bonds with people across the globe. The main objective of this Online Collaboration is to create an online recipe book which is a collection of traditional recipes contributed by the students of Asian and European schools. Through this Online Collaboration, the students will bond with their grandparents while learning about the traditional food cooked at home. They will compile the authentic recipes of these popular dishes and also explore the cultural positioning of each dish. The participating students will cook these cuisines in their kitchen and share the pictures and recipes with other members online. Through this collaboration, the students will learn to appreciate the culinary heritage of their own country as well as to respect the food, culture and traditions of other countries. In addition, students will learn ICT skills to enhance their creative abilities in a technologically advancing world.

project   Let’s Stroll in the Streets
Join us and work as a team to reveal the history of the streets in our countries. Share illustrated articles and documentary videos of colourful street parades, street sports, street musicians, social actions and festivals, and consider how important they are to our life, culture, free time, and sociality. Participants will also explore young people’s input into making the life of their village or town more interesting and diverse. We will reflect on how we can either support other’s, or create our own, initiatives, and compile the outcomes on our BlogSpot to be shared with our local community.

project   Money: A Portrait of Our Histories and Cultures!
Everyone in the world use money as a medium of exchange to buy and sell goods and services. Aside from its practical value, money is designed and produced distinctively by the culture in which it rises and evolves. It also explains the history of the nation. Through this online collaboration, the students will explore and research the history and culture of their own nation through images printed on their currency. Participating students will also have the opportunity to design a currency and provide reason why the specific designs were used.

project   The Power of Songs
Music fills up our life and surrounds us, wherever we live. Styles may vary depending on time, place and tastes but music is still there. In itself, a melody is always meaningful but it can be made even more significant and powerful when lyrics are added to it. This project will focus on how songs can affect and touch us, and on how they can influence us and the world we live in. Each participant will select songs whose lyrics appeal to them for their power in expressing ideas or ideals. Using a range of ICT that allows them to share lyrics, record their own songs and discuss song meanings, students will have the opportunity to explore the power of these songs with their peers.

project   Travel Diaries
"The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page." Although much of education is experienced in a classroom or through a textbook, this is not nearly as fulfilling or effective as learning by travelling the world. This online collaboration will allow the students to see the world and broaden their cultural, intellectual, and spiritual education like they could never have imagined. By exploring other parts of the world (or even ‘hidden gem’ locations in their own country), students will play the part of an adventurer and discover all new artifacts of knowledge.

project   Why Not Visit My Town?
Nowadays it is difficult to attract a teenager's attention outside the computer or smart phone screen. However, there is also a lot to see and do besides spending time in the virtual world. This project aims at encouraging teenagers to compile travel itineraries for their peers visiting their city/ town/ region, picking out the most attractive sights and activities as well as providing information on them. All the itineraries will be compiled with pictures and videos, and will be uploaded on YouTube as well as shared on social media. During this interactive process, students will develop a better understanding of different cultures, and young travelers may even follow the itineraries when visiting the home countries of their peers.

project   Zoom Culture
Images have been used as a form of a communication tool, long before the written word was introduced. When languages become a barrier to communication, images can be a starting point from which to have conversations among people from different cultural backgrounds. “Zoom Culture” online collaboration aims to provide students from different countries with the opportunity to share their culture, and collaborate with other students by sharing meaningful feedback and photography tips. The project focuses on students posting photographs of their daily lives, incorporating at least one sub-skill of photography (such as photography style, natural light, styling, composition etc.).

project   Uniquely Us: Publish It!
Leveraging on the increasing use of technology, participants will embody the persona of photo-journalists or anthropologists to study, document, and share stories of their home country with participants around the world via an online platform. Participants will have the opportunity to study the nuances and technicalities behind successful magazine and article design, and get a first-hand experience in publishing their own articles monthly. They can also choose to produce short video clips to provide a more immersive and engaging experience. Using Design Thinking to guide their project, participants will engage their partners in proposing themes that they want to learn more about, including food, religion, architecture, flora, fauna, language or even education.

EDUCATION
 
project   Rivers - An Elixir of Life
The students will largely discuss and create awareness about the life of people who live near the rivers. This online collaboration will emphasise how civilizations developed around the rivers all over the world, such as how the crops are grown, and how river navigation supported trade, the countries involved in trade and what are the particular trade and good exchange revolving around the river.

project   StoryNET
Stories are excellent ways of understanding different cultures, religions and opinions. Participants are asked to write a network of stories to contribute to ‘story-net’. The network’s nodes are the chapters of fictitious narratives that connect to each other, either by telling the same story from different viewpoints, or by continuing a story following a character’s decision. StoryNet gives students the opportunity, individually, to write about the lives of fictitious characters, and, collectively, to create interconnected and culturally-rooted stories as rich as life itself across Asia and Europe.

HISTORY
 
project   Trivial Pursuit: World War 2 Edition
Though the focus of this online collaboration remains on the Second World War, it is very different from the ones on which were implemented in 2013 and 2016. By utilising movies/films, a source that every country has, students will explore the Second World War history of other countries, as well as their own country, by watching and reviewing the top 5 movies/films about the Second World War as recommended by their peers. This initial phase of this project will then be used as a basis for creating the final product - the infamous board game: Trivial Pursuit.

MEDIA
 
project   Augmented Friendship
The ”Augmented Friendship” online collaboration project is intended to let the students from different schools and countries interact with each other and the final product is a photo exhibition at all schools at the same time. The photos are enhanced with so called augmented reality. This gives the spectators a better look of who is behind the photos and the story behind them. Through this collaboration, the students may learn ICT skills and use augmented reality not only in games but in the business of knowledge.

SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY
 
project   Guess The Code
Applications are programs. Programs were written by programmers. Programmers write codes, and implement algorithms. It is not magic; it is rational … and even guessable. If you have some problem with an application you have to think how it works. You have to guess the code behind the surface. There are hundreds and thousands of questions that participants could ask and try to answer by exploring applications. This year’s focus will be on efficiency of problem solving and national IT specialities. Through this Online Collaboration, students will consider several problems and develop practical skills to solve them.

OTHERS
 
project   The Social Scrapbook
Every country, no matter how developed, is riddled with social problems. A social problem is a condition that at least some people in a community view as being undesirable – for example, a high unemployment rate or an aging population. In this project, students will research a social problem and evaluate the current policies that seek to address it. They will then create awareness of the problem and the related policies through a medium of their choice, before suggesting actions that could be taken within their school or community to reach a solution.
