Italy

  • Students are enthusiastic about the project. They are really involved. Students love writing letters and receiving them from foreign students.
  • Photo hunt and other project tasks are in work.
  • eTwinning is little bit difficult and this is reason why they don´t use it so often. Although supportive comments from Italy students are lovely and noticed by other project partners.

Poland

  • Also pointed out that there are problems with using eTwinning, but compared to previous years doing project tasks is easier (student and teachers are used to it?)
  • They have already done Photo Hunt and presented results to others. They divided classes into teams of 3 and they had map with QR codes about different houses and places and they needed to found all of them and take pictures.

  • Two students have created Photo Hunt as their compulsory creative work they need to do in the end of 8th class. They are using Scoove (orientation game), but due weather condition it has not been used yet. Photo Hunt questions/tasks are from different subjects and difficulty level.

Latvia

  • Teachers are not so involved and interested in the project - main group of teachers involved is small (only 3 persons), but they work well together. It has been most difficult year in this project – teachers are feeling like they are alone and some teachers are working against project.
