From 7th to 13th January Ourém Vocational School (EPO) was in Izmir, Turkey for the kick-off meeting of the Erasmus+ project “Digital Tools for Smart Schools”, which also includes schools from Italy (the coordinator), Poland, and Romania.
During these days, two INSIGNARE employees exchanged pedagogical experiences with their counterparts, with emphasis on the use of new technologies in a school environment and how Digital Tools can support to become a schools smarter. An example of the Turkish Smart School was presented: an App where teachers daily update information about their students and which can be consulted by parents, besides there were suggestion on attending seminars on educational software like Edmodo, QR Code Generator, Ed.Ted.Com, Coding – and Robotics, through Wedo 2.0 / Ev3 Lego Education software.
The planning of the project, including the planning of the meetings until the end of the project, and the activities to be carried out, as well as the division of tasks between the partners, were also object of intense work. The next meeting will be in Italy in March, already with students.
