The design for_change_krasnoyarsk

  1. 1. I Can Talk To The World The story of a Russian school Krasnoyarsk, gymnasium № 16 The Design for Change Steps
  2. 2. Feel the Change <ul><li>Once upon a time there lived a small but a very proud school. It had a lot of children and all of them were very talented. School taught them to love their country, their alma mater, but there was one problem: the school in Siberia was far from Moscow, from Europe. It was like a lilliputian in the world of giants whom it wanted to reach. The children felt themselves outsiders and they understood they needed change something to make everyone feel that there is something in them. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Imagine the Change <ul><li>And then the children of this school said: “We can” and found another small but very kind school on the opposite side of the map-Sawston Village College in Britain and involved it in building a bridge of friendship. </li></ul><ul><li>The Russian students plan to learn English well to say: “ I can talk to the World” as a friendly talk is a golden key able to open all locked doors and raise all forbidden problems. </li></ul><ul><li>We are sure it will work if….. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Do the Change <ul><li>.. we are so strong that nothing can disturb our work of change: </li></ul><ul><li>1.The children tried to make their friends stop believe that life is giving for nothing but having fun when there are so lonely and troubled people in the world and they started talking to the elderly and lonely people, writing letters to the Houses of Invalids and the Elderly. </li></ul><ul><li>2.Took part in common social events: planted trees for” Spirit of the Tree-2012” and drew pictures for the international contest” Talisman Contest </li></ul><ul><li>Sochi-2014” </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>3. Both schools have facilities to use Skype and Internet so this became a great opportunity to “ explore school life” and speak culturally </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>4. ” We can talk through a song. Music can unite us,”-said children and started the common project” Next to the beautiful”, sharing some of the performances they do, CDs with national music and songs and creating a project in a particular subject( Stravinsky Lesson). </li></ul><ul><li>S. Lazin( Russia, Year5) presented his country and gymnasium at the Junior Eurovision Song contest-2010 and helped the Siberian children to be heard by the whole world. “It means, we can affect the people, we can affect the World!”-said they. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Share the change <ul><li>What makes for a great project?- </li></ul><ul><li>Students’ freedom to think and imagine a clear plan and results of their actions. </li></ul><ul><li>They celebrated their act of change with their parents, teachers and other children who live in their neighbourhood. </li></ul><ul><li>It was great to watch the students blossom into independent and more confident learners and just simply good friends and motivated people! </li></ul>
  8. 9. <ul><li>A good idea that is not shared with others will gradually fade away and bear no fruit, but when it is shared it lives forever because it is passed on from one person to another and grows as it goes. </li></ul><ul><li>Thanks a lot for the wonderful project! </li></ul>
