Within the context of "The horse" (teachingweb.org) metallography students from Berlin (Lette Verein Berlin) and business students from Zurich (wkvw business school) are creating contributions in collaboration for save-energy.tips. The goal is to create imaginary scenarios encased in today's reality-based language of maths (calculations).
The ZürIzmir partner class project was an ambitious one in the sense of having differences in culture, language, education and infrastructure but also in respect of a relatively short time frame.
The students had the opportunity to do team research on self chosen environmental topics and experience that communication between team members (or from Zurich or from Izmir) can be a challenge. However, after having succeeded this experimental project and looking back, some lessons can be drawn for a next partner class project.

How to Swirl ?
Go to www.swirls.fun, move the things around with your mouse or fingers and see what happens!
Admittedly started as a little "Happy-new-year-experiment" for you & us: "Wet, breezy, fiery, down-to-earth - the elements can be elegantly moved quite as how one might wish in everyday life." Swirls is more for us, it's a kind of concept that we like to play with and hope to find the time and people to pursue.

Moods and flowing movements - here is a little taste!
After "Don't waste my energy" last year the new website "Don't waste my resources!" is completed.
The website contributions have been created by students within the new (bilingual) teaching subject "Technik & Umwelt".
The website is live! More than 200 different eth-websites were archived since the last millennium. There are a lot of things to discover. Goal: don't be boring, it's material of historical significance..

During our Far East trip we got to know Willy Chen who became our friend. We decided spontaneously to create a website about Lanyu, also known as Orchid Island, a small Pacific Island located at the most Eastern point of Taiwan.
W2W - The students' website project is growing!
Everything started with the idea of having a website created by students last year. And it worked out fine as you could see in our previous post about don't waste My Energy. Now this year the students' website save-energy.tips is going to be widened in the sense of "don't waste My Resources" and "embodied energy".
Imagine you’re on a trip in Sicily ...
Your friend, a native Sicilian, invites you for a coffee in a bar. After a while you’re leaving together and your friend seems to be very amused. Why? What has happened during your short coffee break? He explains: „With gestures and glances everyone in the bar wondered who you are, asked where you came from, if we’re related, etc. Moreover, I caught the newest gossip about love affairs, disputes, etc. Whoever is familiar with the nuances of body language understands a situation as being sympathetic or suspect within the blink of an eye.
Why so many gestures in Sicily?
It’s difficult to say exactly when and how Sicilian body language has developed. One reason might be found in Siciliy’s dynamic history and its geographical position in the Mediterranean. During the past More...
In Sicily gestures are used as an additional language for a long time. Sicilians are able to communicate without words! They're talking with hand signs, sometimes in combination with other parts of their body. Some examples:
Italiano: Al bacio. Dolcissimo!
English: Sweet as a kiss.
Deutsch: Zum Küssen. Einfach süss!
繁中 (Chinese): 甜姐兒 !
