Description: 

Today's Stories develops an approach to learning for young children (4 to 8) that is aimed at the development of social, communicative and emotional skills in the context of their everyday activities. The underlying idea is, first, that children may learn from reflecting on their actions and, second, that children may learn from other children's perspectives on their own actions. The results of Today's Stories are developed and applied within two school environments, in Denmark and in Israel. Exploiting the significant differences between both settings, the project pays attention to social, cultural and ethical implications, as well as to the conditions for acceptance and success. CTI is responsible for the development of the Multimedia Editing Environment. This will serve as the medium for the presentation of the children's stories and material.
