Special added value of the project for our schools

Lessons are more interesting because we integrated project activities into curriculum

Students like to attend extracurricular activities, where they learned a lot about organizing workshops, trips, study visits. Students improved their leadership and intersocial skills since they had to prepare all the activities carried out at school

Slovenian school integrated the students with special needs into workshops. In the Estonian school, students of different nationalities participated in drama activity and also they integrated a student with a light physical disability. Students improved their English skills. Students from Portugal, Slovenia, Estonia and could attend project meetings where they enriched their lives by integrating new cultures, new traditions, their horizon had broadened and they developed the ability to relate to other people and improve their skills. Students got inspired to get involved in other projects and performances for an audience. Students of different nationalities learned how to work together. In that case multicultural dialogue was very important point of the project.

Teachers from different areas worked together as a team in preparing the activities. All teachers involved in the mobilities improve the language skills. For teachers involved into the teaching exchange open-air lessons gave them a new approach to teaching methods and they could experienced new technologies (Smart Board). Coordinators have improoved their skills on project work.

Common project website won first price on Romanian regional Iasi project contest »Made for Europe«

As this was final project meeting we decided to stay in contact for new activities in wich we could work together (ex. International traditional Christmass and Easter exhibitions)

Schools disseminated the project through articles, through regional radio, through drama presentation in front of parents and other students and teachers and school management. We integrated parents and a theatre into project activities.


We agreed that we accomplished all activities and the number of mobilities that were planned. We are satisfied with the results and their dissemination. Every school project team will write in June an evaluation which will be also seen in common webpage.

Every students' exchange was evaluated in their reports.
During this project meeting the teachers and students of different countries met the school headmistress and teachers of different subjects. All participants attended special event on school: planting the tree of generation 2009 and graduators dance quadrille on the streets of town Kranj. School presented different programs and ecological orientation of the school.
Slovenian teachers presented some medieval buildings in Duplje, Kranj and Ljubljana. We visited the Alpine region, which was a very enriching experience. Estonian teachers also visited another secondary school which has got its own wine production.
