G.E.T Educational Tours, in conjunction with our international partner MMExProM, is offering a unique international student exchange program!
Today’s students are global learners, and their learning should not be confined to the classroom. School communities and families also reap the benefits of student international exchange programs and it is with this in mind that G.ET Educational Tours, in partnership with our Italian partners are pleased to present the Italian school exchange and joint project experience for 2018.
The collaborative project offers Australian schools an opportunity to work closely with an Italian school in Italy. All projects are led by experienced teaching staff who constantly liaise with our partners teachers in Italy and Australia.
A suitable school and project is selected on an inquiry based method between teachers and our experienced exchange partners, who are both secondary school teachers in Italy and Australia, and have been organising exchanges for over 15 years. Together you will decide on the location of the school and the theme of the project.
Focusing on a global topic, students work collaboratively as they explore their chosen theme and is based on an inquiry based method/CLIL principals.
Students will attend morning group classes, speaking Italian and will use their knowledge of grammar and vocabulary whilst working on their chosen project with their Italian partner school.
This also creates the opportunity of a continual school exchange. Australian schools can visit Italy and also arrange to accept Italian students during the school year.
The options and opportunities are endless!
You can also have the opportunity, along with the students from the Italian school, to visit neighbouring cities, museum, attractions or attend evening activities.
Projects can also be tailored to cross curriculum students who may be studying for example, Art, History, Religion or food technology, to work alongside Italian students studying English.
Programs can also be based around National Curriculum / VCE Study Designs and also an introduction to the detailed study component of the unit four oral for languages.
On request CLIL or multi-faculty conferencing or job shadowing for teachers can be organised.
