‘Once Upon an Island’ is a partnership between schools from small and large islands around Europe. Children set on a quest to explore stories acquiring lifelong learning skills of reading and writing. Using innovative ICT tools they engage in collaborative storytelling exploring European values and identity. Creative workshops and story sessions with parents and grandparents enrich their knowledge through intergenerational learning. Children are exposed to European language diversity while creating a story in all partner languages using illustrations, audio and music. Many partner schools have migrant children and familiar stories from their own background will boost their interest and motivation in learning.
