SID - Safer Internet Day activities at the Fridagymnasiet college in Vänersborg, Sweden, part 2

SID - Safer Internet Day at the Fridagymnasiet college in Vänersborg, Sweden, part 2

The Swedish Media Council (Statens medieråd in Swedish) has published a pedagogical material to be used in schools during the MILweek -(Media- och InformationsKunnighet) 9-13 February. The work consist of four parts, training, knowledge about the role of Media in our society, How to search for, analyse and critically value information, as well as communicate and create using the internet and media.

The Media Council also provides information and training material for IST for teachers about how to work with Media and Information on the internet. The material is used to educate the individual teacher as well as the teacher teams and prepare everyone better for teaching and working with the students on the theme. A link to the material can be found here.  Classroom tasks can be found here.

The material "Vilja veta!" or in English "Want to know!" , is used during a lesson of 60 minutes and provides teachers with a tool on how to discuss the media use of young people. The interactive part is a competition in groups where you get 27 different taks where you either reply to questions, search for an answer or fulfill tasks to test your knowledge about media in general and how skillful you are when it comes to using it in a good and efficient way, scrutinizing posts and reflecting upon the authenticity of content, pictures etc. in particular. For the competition, the groups use a computer or preferably a smart phone and you need about 30 minutes to work it through.

To view the competition (all questions are in Swedish)


SID - Safer Internet Day activities at the Fridagymnasiet college in Vänersborg, Sweden

SID - Safer Internet Day at the Fridagymnasiet college in Vänersborg, Sweden

Since the Fridagymnasiet college has an outspoken ICT profile and both students and teachers save and share most of their work on-line, addressing safety issues is an ongoing process that goes on all year round and not only on SID. However, the special day made it even more important to focus on how to use the Internet in a safe way. One example of the activities:

Year one students at the college have been working on a long term project with workshops on the theme: Hidden dangers of the Internet. 

There is extensive pedagogical material for teachers as well as videos as the basis for discussions and workshops on www.mucf.se - The Swedish Agency for Youth and Civil Society - a government agency that works to ensure that young people have access to influence and welfare. The agency also supports the government in issues relating to civil society policy. The students have used several occasions of their class hour (which they have three times per week) to work on the material ”Ses offline?” - ”See you offline?”. The final workshops took place on SID - Safer Internet Day, 10 February 2015. 



HandelsakademieYbbs on the Danube (HAK Ybbs) in Austria is a secondary school focusing on economics and media technology. ICT has been applied for many years, in at least on third of our classes each student is equipped with laptops; we make use of digital register, school platforms and 5 computer labs. Many teachers are experienced in e-learning, programmingand the use of educational software. International project management is part of our curriculum and has enabled us to be coordinator of three Comenius projects and other youth projects with partner schools from all over Europe. Lately we have also been concentrating on cooperative open learning, being coordinator for COOL for our province. We have always promoted the use of electronic media, however, we have felt the need to think more about risk and hazards of computer technology and online activities lately, which is why we embrace the ideas of this project.

The Fridagymnasiet upper secondary school

The Fridagymnasiet upper secondary school in Vänersborg, Sweden, is an independently run school founded in 2006. It is part of the Fridaskolorna school organisation with five compulsory schools in the western part of Sweden. The school is quite small with 130 Students and 20 staff.

It has an outspoken ICT vision, with 1-1 (one laptop per person) for all staff and students, using online books, digital platforms, shared documents etc. We, i.e. students and staff, are in the process of designing a new platform for schools to replace a number of programmes needed for administration, student presence, budget, pedagogical planning, documentation, evaluation, assessment, parent information etc. This also means there is a plan for IST for the coming years implementing this new tool.

Fridagymnasiet has been involved in International projects since 1999 and has coordinated three Comenius- as well as three Youth projects together with the Austrian partner school, among which was participation in the WYPS - World Youth Peace Summit held by the UN in Sarajevo in 2004. The school has experience in hosting meetings and exchanges and the students always cooperate with another European partner school to make an exchange during their third and final year.

The Fridagymnasiet also has a clear intention to provide international influences at school, eg. exchange students and teacher trainees and teacher trainers from universities in other countries, to create various arenas for language- and interdisciplinary collaborations in projects using ICT and digital forums but also to create the opportunity for personal meetings with students from other countries and study trips to implement the learning of democratic and ethic values.

The Swedish National Agency presented the Fridagymnasiet last Comenius project as a good project example and the contact person lectured about project management to teachers from all over Sweden.

Liceum Ogolnoksztalcace

Liceum Ogolnoksztalcace im. P.Skargi in Grojec is an upper secondary school preparing students, aged 15 to 18, for university education. The school is one of the oldest ones in the district of Grojec and in the whole Mazowiecke Province. It was founded in 1912. There are 50 teachers and about 600 students in the school. The secondary school students come from different social backgrounds.

A large number of students come from rural areas and most of them need to be strongly motivated to take an active part in school life. Even though there are a few organizations existing at school (e.g. Red Cross, Volunteers' Club, Film Discussion Club or Students' Sport Club), they still need additional, multicultural activities so that they could be more actively involved in the school life and cooperate more willingly, understanding the importance of both their cultural roots and respect for different social and cultural backgrounds. There are a few students of ethnic minorities.

The school is situated in a small town (about 15 thousand inhabitants), which makes it easier to be in touch with students' parents in order to solve problems immediately. The students feel the need of, and have deep interest in, learning about other cultures and making friends with students from abroad.



2nd Lyceum of Kos

The 2nd Lyceum of Kos is a state school with 350 students and 35 teachers that is situated in the border island of Kos. Kos is located in the south-eastern Aegean Sea. Our school possesses library, ICT lab, physics and chemistry labs, gym etc. and has adopted initiatives that have to do with teaching such as cross-curricular approaches.

The students of our school come from different social backgrounds. Some are immigrants from countries of East Europe, we have students with different religions, most of our students are Christian but we also have a minority of Muslim students. Although our students have the opportunity to communicate and contact with people from others countries (Kos is a tourist resort) we feel it is very important for students in this mixed community to begin to see themselves as citizens of tomorrow's Europe, and to see Greece in the wider context of diversity within a common European heritage. Our pupils are well-motivated and high-achieving but it is a central policy in our school that pupils must develop good knowledge of foreign languages, linked with key competences for employability such as ICT skills, creativity and team-work, in order not only to increase their chances of finding good jobs in the future but also to acquire a base of knowledge common to educated persons and the capacity to expand that base over their lifetime so that they develop an integrated personality.

Right now we are in a Comenius project with 11 countries (http://comenius.logrojec.pl/) and we are coordinating a new Erasmus plus KA2 Strategic Partnerships in the field of education. We intend to produce the following outcomes:

  • innovative approaches to addressing our students, by providing more attractive education
  • use of participatory approaches and ICT-based methodologies
  • new or improved processes of recognition and validation of competences
  • new or improved practices to deal with social, linguistic and cultural diversity

 In the past our school developed cultural activities such as the implementation of technology with archaeological sites of Kos, the organization and setting of plays, it has participated in cultural activities, in European projects, in Olympic Education programs in collaboration with schools from Greece and Europe. It has been twinned with Naip Huseyin Lisesi from Turkey (2004) and since then has maintained a constant cooperation and contact in cultural and teaching issues both on the level of students as well as that of teachers. The latest YOUTH program our school coordinated was a project named MEDICULTE and it was an itinerant involving 4 partners from the Mediterranean.

Our website is working only in Greek for now. You can see where the school is situated here.
