Critical Incidents

The idea behind this project is to sensitize young people to the importance of negotiating meanings through dialogue – a challenging task, doubly so because when intercultural encounters occur at a young age it not only requires a linguistic skill to communicate with your foreign partner but also an attitude of openness and flexibility, which usually comes with age.

The critical incidents  will be published in the students’ blogs,

Cultural Detectives in Action

Swedish Blog

Italian blog

Catalan blog

as the project develops  and will be based on the students’ own experiences. They could be used as teaching and learning resources for developing cultural competence, multiple perspectives, empathy  and tolerance of difference. At the end of the project, each country will select five stories to turn into learning resources for  intercultural education. These will be published here, in this blog.
