Another, completely new skill that I acquired was the method through which a Podcast is made. We worked according to a given set of rules which required us to divide tasks between the group members and finally create a podcast with separate roles. We had a full morning to find a topic, to create a basic dialogue and its structure, to plan and write a script and to record everything on a digital platform on which we also learned practical skills like adding intro music or fading a speaker’s voice at transitions between different parts of a podcast.
The cultural activity was one of the best experiences I had that week. We took part in a guided tour, in which a local tour guide and historian led us around the illustrious historic center and atmospheric paths of Rome. As a history teacher, I learned interesting “fun facts” about Roman history which I did not know before.
All in all, I felt grateful and fortunate to be given the chance to participate in this mobility, in which nevertheless I also had the luck to communicate and build relationships with other high school and primary school teachers from Hungary, Germany, Poland, Finland, Spain and Romania. I came back with a lot of positive personal and professional experience that will definitely help me spice up my classes with new methods and activities, and with a knowledge that can also work for the benefit of my students and colleagues.
