We advise you not to carry out your river project for yourself. You should cooperate with other schools in your country or in other European countries because of the following reasons:
- Rivers are like veins, they traverse the countryside and they connect people. When schools are working at the same time at the same river or river system, it suggests itself to cooperate. Cooperation can help your students to integrate the locally acquired knowlegde into a regional / European context.
- Environmental protection is embedded in the complex structure of human civilisation. That’s why simple solutions often don’t exist. When students cooperate, they can experience that problems may be seen from different viewpoints and solved on different ways.
- Last but not least, based upon our experience, we are sure that cooperation will motivate and inspire your students enormously, especially international cooperation.
We would like to assist your online cooperation as well as the use of the multimedia tools in your Book of the River. That´s why we offer several such called web methods. Here you can find information for teachers about:
