We were delighted to have the first meeting of the Erasmus KA2 program “Teaching and Learning with ICT” in Heraklion, Crete. The meeting took place from 24 – 30 of November 2016. As it was the first meeting, the participants, teachers and students, became acquainted with each other. All participants were trained to the ICT use for educational purposes. We organized educational trips to IT companies where all the participants got familiarized with the specifics of work in the company that uses modern ICT applications. We all had a wonderful time. The meeting set off the springboard for future productive meetings.
We had the chance to visit the Foundation for Research and Technology, which is a research center in Greece, supervised by the Ministry for Education through its General Secretariat for Research and Technology. It consists of seven research institutes. We visited the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology (IMBB). IMBB is an internationally known and highly competitive research institute, with an outstanding track record, modern infrastructure and a broad range of research, development and educational activities. In a recent evaluation by a committee of foreign experts, it was ranked first among all Greek research institutes. More info: https://www.forth.gr/
We were happy to welcome our partners in the 2nd mobility from 27 March to 31 March 2017. The purpose of the meeting was to implement activities as part of the project. During this week we visited and saw lectures , we enjoyed the time with our students. Teachers and students presented our project website and discussed it. We also conducted classes of vocational subjects with the use of computer programs and ICT applications. Sharing our experiences and common trips were marvellous. Thanks to all partners!
Thanks to Erasmus+ that we had a chance to implement a model of ICT tools ( especially GPS usage ) in Geography lessons in its own nature, which is based on educational objectives of modern Geography lessons, new curricula for Geography and educational guidelines of the 21st century. The model's basis is presented by groups of students, teachers who participate in individual education segments in the field of Geography. These groups are accompanied by purposes of use of ICT tools which are dissected according to curricula guidelines and educational objectives of Geography. Our project introduces the criteria for creating the model, as well as the equipment, media and geographical contents that teachers in the EU ( for our group Poland, Turkiye, Greece, Hungary and Slovakia ) include in their education process in Geography lessons. The presented model is an important experience in the field of Geography didactics. It is also important from the view of possibilities offered by the ICT tools in Geography lessons, as well as from the view of needed methods' adaptation, teaching forms and self-education.
This project brought an international group of partners from Greece, Poland, Slovakia, Turkey to Hungary to work together in order to collect information and share experiences about what every partner is doing in terms of using ICT at schools. In accordance with the goals of the project, the teachers and students took part in two interactive lessons and visited a company where they could get information about 3D printers. The visitors were showed the most famous places of Jászberény such as the Town Hall, Catholic Church, Jász and Hamza Museums, they were possibility to study Hungarian folk dances. The participants visited the Hungarian capital, Budapest and during the sightseeing tour they could see the most interesting and beautiful places, e.g. Heroes Square, Andrassy Boulevard, Fishermen´s Bastion, Gellért Hill, Castle. The main aims of our project were realized, included in developing teaching methods with ICT at schools and improving knowledge and understanding among students and staff about the European educational system, cultures and languages. It gave us great pleasure to welcome you to Jászberény, Hungary and we were very grateful to you for taking time to come to this meeting.
Between 9-13 June 2018 the Gustaw Gizewiusz II High School in Giżycko, Poland hosted the last mobility of “Teaching and Learning ICT” Erasmus+ project with the participation of partner schools from abroad: Greece, Turkey, Slovakia and Hungary. The main goal of the project was to implement an innovative approach to teaching through the functional use of ICT applications in lessons and introduce attractive methods based on new technology in schools. The results of the project activities were presented on 12 June 2018 at the ICT Conference in Ekomarina in Giżycko in front of the town and district authorities, directors, teachers, the coordinators from partner countries and students. Special guests of the conference were: Mr. Patryk Matyjasek - Cloud Software Engineer from INTEL Polska and a graduate of II High School in Giżycko presenting "Cloud in Education" and Mr. Simon May from Google Training who conducted practical workshops with Google applications. During a live video session from Warsaw, Mrs. Barbara Wycisk, Director of Seiloc Enterprise Solutions, presented Google solutions for schools (Google G. Suite and Acer for education). IT technical support during the event was provided by Mr. Jacek Łożyński, District Councillor in Giżycko. The conference was a summary of two years of Erasmus + project work and an opportunity to disseminate the results of the project. As part of ICT activities at school, we conducted Maths lesson in English using the interactive whiteboard and Flow!Works Pro and Geogebra. The goal was to increase motivation and commitment of students to learn Mathematics and popularize ICT apps for teaching and learning. Project work gave students and teachers the opportunity to gain knowledge and share experiences in the field of ICT, make international friendships and overcome language barriers. The possibilities offered by Erasmus+ were a chance to support our personal development, improve innovative methods of teaching with digital competences and search for interesting solutions in the world of new technologies.
