On October 8, the educational project for schoolchildren “3K: Effective Image-Making of Territories” begins, being organized by the Educational Centre “Children's Internet University” of the Institute of Open and Distance Education of SUSU.
In the course of study, students will learn why it is necessary to form an image of the territory, get acquainted with the main technologies of promoting a city and a region, learn how to develop projects aimed at attracting the attention of various public groups (local citizens, tourists, investors) to the sightseeing significant for the territorial subjects.
“The new educational project has two goals – raising the interest of young people in regional culture and acquainting school students with the basics of territories promotion and the project activities. To achieve them, we chose a distant form of interaction between a teacher and students, short video lectures and creative tasks,” notes Elena Kolmychevskaya, Director of the Children's Internet University Educational Centre.
The course is designed for the students of 8th to 11th forms. The author of the course is a Candidate of Sciences (Cultural Studies), Associate Professor of Department of Management and Law of the Institute of Open and Distance Education, Aliya Dobrikova.
All students of the course who will successfully complete the tasks as well as their supervisors will receive electronic certificates. The final works will participate in the competition of projects for the promotion of sightseeing. The winners will be awarded diplomas from the Children's Internet University and prizes from the partner of the educational project - the Chelyabinsk Branch of Sberbank.
