The participation to the learning activity covered, for each participant, the need to acquire competences through practice and innovative methods, and developed English communication skills.
The developed skills have been certified by a participation certificate, issued for each participant.
Trading has been provided by specialists from Istituto Tecnico Economico e Tecnologico “Girolamo Caruso”- Alcamo, Italy. It has been realised professionally and efficiently, with a process adapted to the needs of the trained individuals. Each of the six participants has found useful elements, suited for their own the subject/ curricular area during the learning activity. The implementation period will be next in the teaching process.
In parallel with the class implementation, dissemination will also take place, as well as cascade forming for all the colleagues teaching in our school unit that have not attended the mobility, and also of those that are not part of our unit.
The lesson plans used in class will be uploaded to the platform.
Even though all teachers involved stated that the impact of the training activities has been beyond their expectations, we can also say that the main beneficiaries of the project are, indeed, the students, that now attend more attractive and efficient courses.
