- Guy kicks of the meeting
- The new participants introduce themselves (Thérèse and Daniel for the Swedish delegation and Dominique the Flemish principal). Welcome gifts are exchanged.
- Finances: no money has been transferred yet because the contract hasn’t been signed. Approximately 18.000€ will be transferred within two months, coördinator gets some 20.000. 20% of the grant will be transferred after the conclusion of the project. Contact persons are Guy (Belgium), Matthias (Sweden), Ennio (Italy) and Ellen (Germany). They have to fill in the mobility tool. The majority of the budget will be used for mobilities.
- Distribution of tasks.
- Nereto: click advisor: a tripadvisor for TEL-lessons. Ennio wants to develop a checklist to evaluate the tools, lessons, resources. This will be used for lessons produced during the project, but also for lessons and tools that are found on the internet, etc. The click-advisor will be an online tool, but also on the e-twinning portal. It will be an open system so all teachers and students can view the results. Only teachers and students of the project can evaluate lessons. Guy suggests some categories, but Ennio aims to have a broader tool. The first version should be installed by the Michelstadt meeting. Daniel suggests that it should be an open system. If many people contribute to it, it will be a more useful tool. The suggestion is raised delegation to make a preliminary version for the Michelstadt meeting.
- Kinna: click collector: This is a collection of lessons so the lessons can be shared across the project. lektion.se is an existing Swedish platform where you can upload and share lessons. Wendy suggests weezoozacademy.be a source for creative ideas to make lessons. Digitalpedagogik.se is a similar website. The different systems should be able interoperate.
- Michelstadt: click instructor: the school hasn’t discussed the topic yet.
- Antwerp: click learner: this will be in the form of a instruction video.
- The meeting is split into groups. In those groups lists of useful tools will be collected so the Michelstadt group can devise some instructions for the Michelstadt meeting. A list of useful tools is constructed and categorized.
- Financials: addendum to point
- . Where will the students stay: preferably in host-families. For instance Michelstadt meeting: each partner should bring 6 students. So 18 host-families are needed. If a school want’s to bring more students, the host school will try to provide host-families. If the host can’t find enough families, the guest school will pay for the accommodations. If the host school finds less than 18, the host school pays for the accommodation.
- Fields for which lessons will be created
STEM, Social sciences and humanities, Languages. For the Michelstadt-meeting it is discussed what field will be chosen. Participants suggest to make a lesson for their own subject. Participants should bring two lessons about languages and two lessons about STEM. Participants should also test this lesson at home, evaluate and bring it to Michelstadt. If however you do a live, technology enhanced lesson at home, evaluate it, and you record it, play it at a meeting, reevaluate it, you are evaluating different things. The solution for this problem is that a teacher at the meeting gives the lesson aided by the instructions the original teacher has noted. With this solution the teacher that created the lesson doesn’t necessarily have to travel. For the Michelstadt meeting the fields of STEM and languages will be chosen.
- Local targets groups: the students the flemish delegation want’s to target are students how can’t come to school, due to illness, strikes, and so on. Also students with low motivation, danger of drop-out. The Italian delegation points out that also normal students are targeted and students that for instance have olympic meetings. So the inclusiveness is the main target. However creating technology enhanced lessons is something completely different from recorded lessons. So we should decide on one of the two. This is discussed in smaller groups. Tutorials and live lessons will be created. The application form is reread to shed some light on this conundrum. Some of the partners fear that the social aspect is neglected. It is agreed that both distance learning and TEL are important.
- Two subjects will be discussed in small groups: evaluation and promotion. An e-twinning project is created by Ennio. The other schools will be invited to collaborate so the project can be promoted. The results of this groups are handed to Guy.
