Exchange between Utrecht and New York (2015) Part I

Face to Face proposes a new learning method based on a virtual connection between youth from two countries. It consists in simultaneous online workshops where social media are the communication tools.

At the moment we are doing a 6 weeks online workshop between New Utrecht High School (US) and Amadeus Lyceum (NL) about the relationship between both countries during the 17th century. As preparation during January both schools had a master class given by a local historian and they visited a museum related to the workshop theme. Have a look at the pictures!

In March we started with the online workshops. In peer groups, students from Utrecht and New York are writing a story that connects both countries and both centuries (XIII – XXI). Together, they will translate their imaginative retellings into posters that will be exhibited during May.

Save the date!

In May 2015 the students will exhibit their work in Brooklyn at the Brooklyn Historical Society and in Utrecht at the Vrijstaat. More information coming soon!
