Kids in Clouds project partners met at the Transnational Meeting in Croatia. Meeting was led and organized by Algebra and it was a good opportunity to analyse current project achievements and design a path for results that are yet to come. Moreover, this was a great opportunity for networking with our partners!
While we were busy working on Intellectual Output 4 (Digital learning materials for children) during Winter and Spring of 2022, we were also planning to meet in person. Algebra was in charge of organizing this Transnational Meeting, which was held at Algebra on 5th and 6th April 2022.
As a host of the meeting, Algebra team pointed out that this project is very important not only for the partnership, but also to our national educational systems. All partners pointed out that project results and project’s impact are drivers of innovation in schools and education systems which are greatly needed.
As a confirmation of project’s importance, partners discussed project achievements so far. Indicators of success were quantified – during the pilot process, more than 30 teachers from 4 schools and 3 countries tested Kids in Clouds educational materials for teachers, tried to use cloud-based tools and were encouraged to use them in the future.
Our next challenge is to create digital learning materials for children and thus show to the students how easy, practical and effective is to learn while using cloud tools. For this purpose, we agreed to create interdisciplinary projects which will be designed for implementation in learning environments of primary and secondary schools across Europe.
On the Transnational Meeting in Croatia, we discussed the progress related to creating teaching scenarios for interdisciplinary projects together with all needed learning materials. All partners presented projects that their teams are creating. As a conclusion – partners are designing many creative and innovative teaching scenarios and learning materials that will help students across Europe to learn about Mathematics, Science, History, Geography, Literacy, Art, Music and many other interdisciplinary topics with the help of cloud tools.
We will continue to inform you about our work and project results that are yet to come!
Many thanks to our project teams and experts for great collaboration – Secondary School St. St. Cyril and Methodius (Bulgaria), College Jules Reydellet (France), Ludina Primary School, Primary School Horvati and Algebra (Croatia).
