Update on trends in education, exchange and creating own outputs
The second CCL Peer Exchange workshop on 14 and 15 November 2014 took place in Zürich in Switzerland, in conjunction with European Schoolnet’s ‚EMINENT‘ conference. 24 CCL teachers from Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Italy, Lithuania, Slovenia, Portugal and the UK exchanged during the two days on the implementation of the second round of Learning Scenarios and innovative use of tablets with their students.
During the ‚EMINENT‘ conference with the focus on ‚Assesing key competences: shifting paradigms‘, teachers got updated on latest research in education, other European Schoolnet projects and specific topics such as special needs education, science education, key competences and digital skills. Moreover, industry partners presented new software solutions.
The second part of the workshop was devoted to an exchange among the teachers of the project. Example presentations of the teachers‘ work are available on the website. In general, teachers gave the feedback that they worked better with the Learning Scenarios in the second year, as they had a better idea of the process and more support.
Finally, teachers also had to actively create own outputs in group works during the workshop. They presented their thoughts on what worked and what was difficult when implementing their scenario. One group managed to create their own website during the session, another group drafted instructions on how to use mobile devices to create a treasure hunt. More examples are available here. Teachers gave very positive feedback on the workshp and appreciated again the possibility to exchange with teachers from other countries the most. They found it reassuring to hear that colleagues struggeled with the same challenges and got tips on what works.
