From 2015 to 2017, The Duchess Izabela Czartoryska No 93 Lower Secondary School with bilingual classes in Warsaw took part in the Erasmus Plus project: "THE PLACE WHERE WE LIVE!".
The project was carried out in a EU partnership coordinated by the school from Romania:
The main objectives of the project were:
Since September 2015, the students and teachers took part in mobilities to Bucharest in Rumania, Limassol in Cyprus, Mülheim an der Ruhr in Germany, Porto in Portugal, Lytham St Annes in the UK and to Como in Italy.
The school coordinators met in Romania at the beginning of the project to get to know each other and to discuss the activities and their schedule in details. At the end of the project they met in Italy where they summarised the two-year work. Next meetings involved students and teachers. They worked in multinational teams to learn together about history, to collect materials in order to prepare the school calendars, presentations, ebook, tourist guide and cookery book.
After coming back home, the students met every week and edited the project blog, prepared the posters, elaborated materials for future meetings and results.
The teachers exchanged ideas about teaching, educational materials, managing the classroom and organising school work. They took part in workshops on modern teaching techniques, use of innovative tools, informal education outside the classroom. They also had, observed and discussed lessons. The result of their work is a manual with a set of didactic materials ready to use in lessons after the end of the project.
All the participants visited interesting places, learnt to use ICT tools, worked on presentations together and communicated in English.
At the end of the project Gimnazjum 93 organized a summative conference dedicated to Erasmus Plus projects and the possibilities they create for the students and the schools and teachers’ development.
The project activities can be followed on the blog, website, Facebook funpage and eTwinng platform.
