There was also coordinators’meeting, there were discussed some organization problems about rescheduling activities after Portugal and Netherlands cancellation. There was a workshop at the University of Management “Constantin Brancoveanu”, Braila-how do we encourage pupils to continue their studies? Day 3 Workshop on interactive learning methods: learning by doing, creating digital exhibitions with museums in schools, introducing transdisciplinary moments in a lesson,study methods with smart phones and tablets at the House of Parliament and the Museum of Senses. There was a feedback questionnaire for evaluation of LTT. There were 4 teachers from Greece,3 teachers from Lithuania and 2 teachers from Spain. There were around 120 local participants:11 teachers from school involved in training courses in school, around 90 pupils from school “Sfantul Andrei”, about 10 parents from school, 4 participants from Teaching-Training Staff House, 4 participants from University of Management “Constantin Brancoveanu. Regarding event’s relevance and integration with normal activities of involved schools,it contributed to mainstreaming teaching and learning of ICT across curricula and practices.This training enriched and organized existing activities within a code of practice that purposely addresses questions of ICT to motivate pupils.In addition to this code of practice, the workshops produced lesson plans, lesson templates and teaching material.As a follow-up,this material was digitized and used during primary education, English, Biology, Physics, ICT, Religious. Participants in this training event benefited from a deeper understanding of how ICT shapes the material we teach, the methods we used to teach it, and our preconceptions about teaching and learning to motivate our students to continue their studies,to involve them actively in learning process.To the very least, participants became more conscious that ICT is implicitly present both in what we teach and how we teach it,even when our lessons do not address these questions directly.This heightened awareness of how ICT shapes education resulted in a series of more tangible benefits. Participants added to their pedagogical toolbox practical techniques for engaging pupils.They learnt how to structure their formal lessons on ICT and how to incorporate it in informal and interactive lessons of: English, Biology, Physics, Religious Education, primary classes.We expected the impact of these benefits to grow as participants applied this new learning in their schools’ curriculum and practices, both within the project’s timeframe and beyond.Teachers that participated in the joint training event shared their learning with colleagues and formulated concrete suggestions, specific to their school’s needs and curriculum.The acquisition of this learning was evaluated through small-scale project assignments,which participants completed in groups. Given the non-theoretical nature of this training, participants were immediately able to use their new skills in their classrooms. Upon successful completion of the training, participants received Europass certificates.
