Caminos Perdidos de la Transhumancia
Edulands resource

The action involves the study and connection with the forgotten landscape of transhumance in the municipality of Santomera through the creation of a guided documentary. Students have examined the elements of their municipality’s landscape through this ancient practice, subsequently developing fictional stories interpreted and sensitized through mediation and theatricalization. Activities include the study of direct sources such as old maps or laws associated with transhumance, interviews with transhumant shepherds, visits to spaces related to transhumance for understanding, and staging. These activities were carried out leading up to the final production of the docufiction film and its presentation to society.

Carrying out a collective audiovisual work
Edulands resource

The project involves creating a collective audiovisual work on the social and emotional perception of a chosen landscape. The objectives include reflecting on the landscape through audiovisual creation, fostering creativity and expression, understanding the concept of transition, acquiring acting and audiovisual technique knowledge, and promoting teamwork. The participants, including students, a teacher, and an audiovisual mediator, go through phases such as research, emotional exercises, script creation, rehearsals, filming, and editing. The process aims to deepen participants’ connection with their environment, incorporating emotional knowledge into the learning experience.

The project aims to create emotional learning experiences with the landscape for high school students. Through various activities conducted over five days, the project seeks to deepen the connection between students and their emotions, complement intellectual knowledge with emotional understanding, and foster team bonds, empathy, and assertive communication.

Mapping the internal landscape
Edulands resource

The pupils drew the contour (frame) of their bodies onto a big poster with the help of another pupil. They reflected upon personal questions, answered them with a collage or in a written form on a post-it and glued that post-it on their frame. After, they presented their answers and poster to each other. Some pupils took the roles of recording or interviewing. After each presentation, they were asked if they had discovered anything they had in common with the presenter. Further, on a voluntary basis, they were interviewed about general questions about their life at school and their everyday routines.
