“MY WATER OF LIFE” is an eTwinning project. In our international eTwinning project, there are 5 countries,16 partner members and 145 student including Albania, Italy, Portugal, Spain and Turkey.
The Importance of the Project
Water, our source of life on earth, is rapidly becoming polluted due to consumption habits in the modern world. Global warming and climate change are dragging the world into an uncertain future, threatening even water-rich countries. Water literacy is therefore extremely important for the conservation of water, which is a vital resource for life. With this project, our students will learn by observing the behavior of water in their daily lives, how it is polluted and how it should be protected. With water awareness, our students will also contribute to the protection of the ecological system.
With this project, it is aimed that students become water literate by creating water awareness against the increasing water pollution in the world. In addition, it is aimed to use, one of the most important sources in the world and irresponsibly used, water more carefully and economically among our students, their parents and teachers. Also, it is aimed to improve foreign language skills of students and use technologies such as computers and mobile phones safely with web 2.0 tools.
