The Let me be your Tour Guide project introduces new teaching methods and brings benefit for the local communities by improving the tourist offer of the cities involved. The time of the pandemic revealed how people can be prevented from moving and traveling freely for a variety of reasons.
Students will create an app and digital content while they enjoy site seeing in their own cities and the cities in the partnership. Looking at what the partner cities need, the partners have established that the app will be a new modern tool in the hands of tourists and that this is exactly what one needs to make one’s cities more competitive in the tourism market.
The partners will get valuable digital content feeding the app that will be publicly available to all interested teachers and students from the local and state environment.
The Mobile app will be a tourist guide to the cities of Schiedam, Reykjavik, Dublin, Nafpaktos, Malta and Split. Digital content will contain the cultural sights of these cities.
While improving the tourist offer of cities the process will introduce new teaching methodologies in schools.
In the same process students will improve their computer science knowledge and skills, cultural and historical knowledge and English language skills, because each product will be translated into English in addition to their mother tongue.
Teachers will have an opportunity to work on their IT skills and the products themselves will serve them in processing new teaching units. Instead of just showing pictures, they will have videos made with state-of-the-art 3D techniques available.
