VISIONARY aims at providing a transnational platform for teachers, parents, pupils as well as experts dealing with "violence in school" by means of a multi-level web site.
In order to promote wide access as well as interactivity and communication between the users the project`s web site combines different forms of new information and communication technology.
The web site consists of a transnational web site as well as of interrelated national web sites of the participating countries Germany, Denmark, Finland, Portugal and England. Each web site provides a collection of links to web sites referring to violence in school, a discussion forum, a mailing list for teachers, pupils, parents and experts as well as an online-questionnaire.
The link collection is the core of the project`s web site and aims at compiling, structuring and commenting links to national and transnational web sites referring to "violence in school" (e.g. web sites with description of projects, advises for parents, teachers, victims etc., compilations of materials for school, addresses of experts and social welfare institutions etc. ). Thus it promotes access to educational resources as well as to examples of good practice in the field of violence in school.
The discussion forum and the mailing list promote interactivity and communication amongst the users of the web site. While the discussion forum allows direct communication among all users who visit the forum at a certain point of time, the mailing list reaches all users who are registered and hence promotes a wide dissemination of current information, questions and comments of other users etc.
The online-questionnaire which is part of each national web site aims at evaluating the structure and the content of the web site as well as the users behaviour and preferences while utilising different forms of new information and communication technologies.
