Multiculturalism and Volunteering in Europe
We prepared a presentation about volunteering and its advantages concerning the development of multicultural awareness. After that explanation, as a way of fostering the student’s critical thought, we played a game with cultural and linguistic fun facts, and with real and manipulated photos.
As one of our aims was to expose students to different cultural backgrounds, we gave the presentation in English. When our explanations became too difficult to understand, we translated to Romanian the main ideas.
For the game, students had to work in teams and come up with a joint answer. They enjoyed the teamwork, which made them feel more engaged in the activity. At the end, when we revealed the correct answers to the quiz, they were surprised by how easy it is to manipulate pictures and make them look real.
