What is CinEdu
CinEdu is a project for a web platform of films that can be downloaded as tools for intercultural education.
CinEdu is the future of education, it is a window on the World to encourage cultural openness using the cinema as an educational tool. The new technologies have made interconnection, the exchange of experiences and knowledge easier and broken down distances, so why not use them to open up a dialogue on the themes concerning interculture, by putting the pupils, teachers, educators and linguistic-cultural mediators all over Italy in touch with one another?
CinEdu will thus be a new place to enjoy, meet and exchange. For schools that are increasingly plural, accessible, shared and with their eyes open on to the world.
How CinEdu works
Short films selected and presented at the African, Asian and Latin American Film Festival of Milan ( www.festivalcinemaafricano.org ) will be on the CinEdu platform; they can be presented directly in the classroom – or in other contexts – and can be the starting point of discussion for lessons and to look at other subjects in further depth. The film catalogue of CinEdu, which will have a focus on interculture, will be divided by themes and each film will be accompanied by educational notes, special contents, video tutoring and webinars. CinEdu will also offer the possibility of accessing a social space, an online forum of exchange of good practices where it will be possible to compare and exchange experiences, ideas and material.
Openness, new perspectives and sharing, all just a click away.
Who CinEdu addresses
CinEdu addresses teachers, educators and professionals in the education sector and the third sector who believe in a plural educational system, attentive to current affairs and open to dialogue with cultures capable of forming new generations of the adults of tomorrow who will be increasingly Citizens of the World. CinEdu is for parents who want an attentive and innovative education with an international outlook for their children to help them on their educational pathway. CinEdu is also – and above all – conceived for children, adolescents and young people who can experiments alternative and exciting ways of studying where they can take a central role in their growth.
Mandela said that “education is the great engine of personal development” and we can all be cogs – small but fundamental – in this engine.
