Teachers’ meeting Minutes
16th – 18th May 2019
1. Certificates and Payment cards
The coordinator gives all the certificates and payment cards.
2. Organization of the visit and activities
The organization of the visit has been perfect. We have straightly followed the programme of the visit and everything has worked out properly. The students and teachers are really happy with the activities. We have had the chance to work on the main topic, refugees, as well as to know more about the culture of the country, which has been a great experience.
We all will try our best to continue etwinning as a communication tool for teachers and students. Our first task will be to créate a new thread, where students and teachers will share their thoughts and feelings about their experience in Oulu.
4. Tasks for each country
Here you will find the tasks we were supposed to do after the visit to Iniesta. Let’s check if everything is done. We’ll work on the problems that may have appeared.
Now, these are the tasks of every country after the visit to Finland:
Spain: Mobile app, website and social networks
Finland: Coordinate etwinning, School Education Gateway and Project Results Platform
Denmark: coordinate the refugee dictionary in English and our mother languages, to be uploaded to our App. Students will choose about 10-15 words they consider important as to be included in this useful dictionary. They will be translanted into English, our mother language, and the most common language used by inmigrants/refugees in our areas.
Italy: Creation of questionnaires for teachers and students and analize the results. Feedback for the next visit to Denmark.
As we agreed, we ́ll continue working on them and everything will be uploaded to our Drive Folder.
