As the leader of our Erasmus+ project, we were really busy with implementation, promotion and dissemination in August 2021. We presented our Erasmus+ project “Let’s teach Europe!” and the blog during a few educational events: in Spain, in Greece and in Poland.
The 10th of August 2021, Barcelona, Spain
Our Erasmus+ project “Let’s teach Europe!” was presented in Barcelona, during the Erasmus+ training “Design the Positive: Positive Thinking, Positive Communication and Positive School Spaces”. Eleven educators (eg teachers of IT, maths, English) from Hungary, Slovakia, Estonia, Bulgaria and Italy, participating in this course, were invited to check our website and blog, where we published articles about cultural heritage of Calabria, Galicia, South East England and Greater Poland. We discovered that similar projects about the European heritage have been implemented also in other countries, by educators taking part in the training in Barcelona. One of them is the Erasmus+ project “Let’s feel the might of the European Cultural Historical Heritage “ implemented in 2018-2020 at schools in Bulgaria, Spain, Portugal and Sweden.
The 25th of August 2021, Corfu, Greece
Our Erasmus+ project “Let’s teach Europe!” was presented in Corfu, during the Erasmus+ training “Creative teaching and teaching creativity: how to foster creativity in the adult education”. Ten language teachers from KONTAKT CJO in Poland, who were participating in this course, were invited to check our website and blog, where we published articles about cultural heritage of Calabria, Galicia, South East England and Greater Poland. We talked about our future project mobilities and discussed new educational ideas. Everybody loved the idea of treating the European Heritage as a pedagogical and integration tool in adult education.
The 31st of August 2021, Poznań, Poland
We organized an online meeting for the Polish participants of our first project mobility to present the idea of “Let’s teach Europe!”, to show our website, blog and social media profiles, and to discuss the details of the first foreign training in Italy. The Polish team will consist of four adult students (2 women and 2 men) and one teacher of English, assisting them. They will visit our Italian partner, JUMP from Calabria, and meet the Spanish and Italian teams there. The British team cannot come but they will take part in some online activities with other teams present in Calabria.
We’re looking forward to our first training in Soverato, in Italy. Fingers crossed!
