E-commerce sharing activities and learning

In the context of the PEAL – Partnership in e-commerce sharing activities and learning last  May 2018, 10 students and 5 teachers gathered in Siauliai, Lithuania. They came from Holland, Denmark, Spain and England full of expectations. They knew nothing or very little about Lithuania, but they were about to learn a lot about this fine Baltic country.The day after their arrival they met at the school and were introduced to Šiauliai vocational education and training centre. They spent the rest of the morning being introduced to each other, to the teachers and they also made presentations of their own schools.
