Guided tour for school teachers at Ocean Space

The Education Department of Ocean Space offers targeted courses in citizenship and sustainability, along with introductions to topics relating to oceanographic issues, culture and contemporary art.

The educational program seeks to engage and involve both the teaching community and students of all levels on issues concerning the pressing challenges facing the environment and society around the world, with the aim of establishing a new “ocean generation”.

One of the main objectives is to help foster the growth of future citizens with an awareness of the ocean’s importance to humanity, a vital resource that needs to be protected to safeguard the existence of all forms of life on planet Earth.

The Education Department has launched a long-term educational experience to give everyone a chance to be actively involved, and to make a serious contribution towards safeguarding our planet.

EDUCATION ACTIVITIES FOR SCHOOLS 2021 | 2022

In the school program 2021/2022, students will be taking part in training sessions and digital workshops in the classroom designed to encourage collective reflection, critical thinking, and inspire environmentally conscious actions. Using the “peer to peer” method (young people talking to other young people), the educational experience will be divided into three multidisciplinary paths, determined by school classification, that will guide students through the process of creating short animated videos and documentaries as forms of environmental activism from the classroom.

TUTTO UN ALTRO PERCORSO

Dal 2022 Ocean Space fa parte del progetto "Tutto un altro percorso" (ex Alternanza scuola-lavoro) promosso dall’Ufficio Scolastico Regionale del Veneto e dalla Fondazione di Venezia, che permette a studenti e studentesse di essere coinvolti nelle attività del programma educativo permanente di Ocean Space "Ocean Schools".

Obiettivo primario dell’iniziativa è agevolare in particolar modo l’incontro tra licei e mondo del lavoro. Sono stati definiti specifici percorsi di Alternanza Scuola-Lavoro (ora PCTO), studiati e condivisi, per offrire opportunità formative di alto e qualificato profilo per l’acquisizione di competenze spendibili nel mercato del lavoro e nella scelta post diploma.

COME CANDIDARSI?

Il docente referente, effettuati i passaggi previsti dalla normativa, dovrà raccogliere le lettere motivazionali con cui gli studenti interessati si presenteranno all’Ente, e inoltrarle alla Fondazione di Venezia tramite mail, entro le date indicate nelle singole schede, all’indirizzo g.mimmo@fondazionedivenezia.org. Le lettere motivazionali dovranno evidenziare gli interessi, le attitudini, le conoscenze e le motivazioni della scelta di ogni singolo studente. In questo modo gli enti saranno agevolati nell’individuazione degli studenti in grado di inserirsi al meglio nell’attività proposta.

Per evitare di gravare sui tutor dei soggetti ospitanti nell’individuazione dei candidati più idonei, e permettere di ospitare studenti provenienti da esperienze diverse, si consiglia di inviare non più di 5 candidature per classe (salvo nel caso di esperienze progettate per l’intero gruppo classe).

Una volta individuati i candidati, la Fondazione di Venezia metterà in contatto il docente referente con Valeria Bottalico, Responsabile delle attività educative di Ocean Space, per concordare le tempistiche e le attività del progetto.
