WebDANCE

"Dance for all using advanced e-learning tools"


Period: October 2002 - October 2004
Type: European Research
Status: Completed
Website: www.aegean.gr/culturaltec/webdance/

Overview

The key objectives of the project are:

  • e-Learning Requirements for Traditional Dance Events: to define the learning requirements and derive educational (curricula) specifications relating to traditional dances, in different educational settings (i.e., in secondary schools in the UK and Greece)
  • Tools for Traditional Dance Learning: to design, develop and test an interactive Learning Environment, that will address the above e-Learning requirements
  • Pedagogical/Didactical Methodology: to provide the pedagogical/didactical methodology framework to support both the learner and the teacher in achieving their educational and training needs.
  • Learning Resources: to provide original, reusable learning material of European added-value in order to support the pilot implementation and the demonstration of the learning environment
  • Assessment and Validation: to provide evidence for issues such as efficiency, scalability and cost effectiveness from the pilot implementation and use of the learning environment system in different learning settings
  • Generalisation: to contribute to the standardisation efforts in the area of dance e-education.

MIRALab's contribution
