In this Online Collaboration, the students create an online recipe book with cuisines from different ASEM Countries. Students will write the recipes of the dishes that are commonly used in their homes, or famous in their country, accompanied with original pictures from the kitchens. The project attempts to bring back some dishes that were more common during the times of our grandparents. The students are requested to try to make a dish from another country, post photos of their creation and share their experience of making the dish.
PROJECT DESCRIPTION / SUMMARY “Cultural Loom” allow students to decode different cultures and social backgrounds. Participating students will compare how food, music, dance, transportation, objects, houses and clothing are experienced differently in Asia and Europe. All research, experiences and interaction are described in blog posts. The final outcome is the creation of a “virtual” intercultural T-shirt that respects the cultural diversity of everyone involved. The Online collaboration aims to boost Community cohesion and Global Citizenship and enhance the intercultural competences of both students and teachers involved.
