This project aims at developing English language skills among students and teachers, break down cultural barriers and stereotypes, and help young people find where they belong in the modern world, with special attention given to educational and job prospects.
We intend to achieve the above-mentioned aims by undertaking a project on the history of the local communities, while putting a strong emphasis on the role the minerals extracted in the area play - the stone "Pińczak" in Pińczów and oil in Ploesti, which have been important in shaping the history of both towns and have had a profound influence on their development and the lives of their inhabitants.
Various aspects in relation to extraction and processing of the natural resources will be examined: economic development of the towns from the earliest years, settlement and migrations determined by the presence of the minerals, trade exchange with the outside world, everyday life, customs, culture and art of the people belonging to the stone or oil trade.
The project is intended to implement joint undertakings in the form of practical and open-air activities, both in Pińczów and Ploiesti. It includes getting to know local natural environment, industrial centres and historical places connected with the local minerals. We will be meeting people whose professional lives (stoneworkers, research centre and university workers) and artistic lives (sculptors) are bound up with stone and oil.
The project is aimed at pupils aged 13-15. Implementation of the project will be based on using modern information technologies: Power Point and Movie Maker presentations, interactive whiteboards, real-time Internet text messaging (chat rooms), blogs and social network services.
This study presents a quantitative and qualitative analysis of data collected from a broad range of organisations within the knowledge-intensive service sector for the MATURE Integrating Project. The research delves into the concept of Knowledge Maturing (KM), which is goal-oriented learning on a collective level, within and across organisations. This study is based on a total of 139 interviews conducted throughout Europe, and focuses on different aspects of KM.
