Dear friends, summertime is here and we are taking a well deserved time off after a very hard academic year. The international health crisis has taken a toll on our project, and we’ve had to cancel our last mobility in Málaga, which was planned for April 2020. Hopefully, we’ll be able to make it in March 2021, as we’ve been granted an extension of time for our project.
However, we’ve managed to keep working online together, to keep in touch and share our concerns with our international partners on our Twinspace. For example, we’ve shared presentations on how online learning was carried out in each country. In addition, we’ve discussed how the pandemic was affecting our lives and done research on how the crisis was affecting social enterprises and NGOs, one of the main topics of our project.
What’s more, we’ve managed to have an online meeting to evaluate the hard work we’ve done over the past two years and share our feelings and impressions on participating in an Erasmus programme. It was great to meet our friends in these difficult times. You can watch it here. Part 1 and part 2.
Finally, here are some videos put together by Kati Hevesi, our Hungarian coordinator, summarising all the work developed during the project, both in-school activities and international mobilities.
One of the activities of our project has been celebrating Europe Day. The activities we carried out included the following:
In-class workshops with Kahoot and Quizziz to learn about the EU institutions and countries, especially the ones we work with. We focused on Hungary, Poland and Croatia, our Erasmus+ partner countries.
Here are the learning materials we created and used:
Moreover, all participating Erasmus+ students from partner countries have engaged in an online debate on Twinspace about different cultural and social aspects of Europe.
Last but not least, we organized a dissemination activity at I.E.S. Pablo Picasso, Spain, during breaktime on that day. There, students had the chance to learn more about France (particularly Reunion Island) and Italy (particularly Sicily) with Séphora and Federica, the European volunteers at this school. They made posters with interesting facts and figures about their countries and brought some traditional food for us to taste. We also learnt about the etymology of the word “Europe” thanks to a poster realized by students from 4th B with the help of our Latin and Greek teacher.
Here you can see pictures from the event. Thank you for participating.
