In June 2010 μηλιά collaborated with the AEI and led visits by students aged 14-16years to the walled city using the ‘Nicosia is Calling’ booklets provided by the Association for Historical Dialogue and Research. Having ended months of exam preparation, students stepped outside the classroom to find alternative means of stimulation and learning. The Association’s booklets led small groups through the Chrysaliniotissa and Paphos Gates Area.
Students walked, observed and responded to the prompts provided. They explored their existing knowledge of the areas, reflected on their experiences in some pieces of highly insightful writing.
Others returned to the classroom and created narratives using images of their walkabouts which they then presented in the form of storyboards.
The students’ wonderful work speaks for itself! Click here for more.
