In the ONCE contest, all students from Spanish public, private and government-subsidised schools can participate, who are studying: Special Education, Primary (years 3 to 6), Secondary, Basic Vocational Training, Baccalaureate and Vocational Training (intermediate and higher levels).
It doesn’t matter. The topic is completely different, as well as the creative projects requested of participants, so it is in reality a totally new contest.
Each classroom will participate by working as a single group and present only one project developed among all the students or selected from different proposals that were worked on in smaller groups. In the teacher materials, you will find some suggestions on how to do it.
No. To participate, a teacher from the school must register.
This programme is integrated into the school syllabus. For this reason, it does not entail any additional work. The teaching materials that we provide will let each teacher develop the contents and activities they deem timely in their classrooms (depending on time and possibilities) to introduce their students to the contest topic and facilitate their later participation project.
The level of involvement in supervising and helping students create the participation project will be the decision of each teacher. The teacher is only committed to explaining the activity to them and subsequently submitting the participation project to us.
This awareness raising programme and its teaching materials were developed based on the syllabus and can be specifically worked on in tutoring sessions, as well as through these basic skills:
No. They are only a tool to assist teachers in their task to introduce this year’s topic to their students and how to tackle the project to be submitted.
Yes. Each classroom-group must submit:
Primary (year 3-6) and Special Education:
A poster that calls for more inclusive schools, a school for all of us (in .JPG format no larger than 2 MB), accompanied by a title (at most 140 characters) and an audio-description, which will be used as an accessibility tool for jurors with visual impairments (at most one minute long).
Secondary Education, Basic Vocational Training, Baccalaureate and Vocational Training:
An audiovisual piece (in .AVI / .MP4 / .MOV format, no heavier than 100 MB and no longer than 60 seconds) that demands more inclusive schools, schools for everybody, accompanied by a title (at most 140 characters) and a text document with a detailed script to make the project more accessible for jurors.
After the classroom group has decided on the idea it wants to express, it shall then create the composition of the poster, using any and all techniques they believe necessary: from manuals, to collage using magazines or their own photographs, to any computer software that lets them capture and express their ideas (Photoshop, online publishing programs, etc.).
The possibilities are unlimited. Let your creativity fly!
After the group has decided on the idea it wants to express, it shall then make the recording of their micro-short. To do so, the group may employ any video camera or device with an integrated camera, provided that the images are clear, sharp and recorded with a good resolution (we recommend horizontal and not vertical shots). In addition, if the classroom thinks it is necessary, it can use video editing programs for the final assembly of their audiovisual piece.
Of course. After the teacher explains what the project to submit should be like, students may spend all the time they want on developing the project outside the classroom.
