At the end of May another IPM was held for the first time in Bialystok, Poland.  Durring the meeting we were discussing issues with the use of platform based on materials previously sent to partners and decided that each partner should have “homework” – meaning that working and practicing the use of platform should be a key to further success.

We were also discussing about the method of teaching using the platform by Daugavpils Tirdzniecibas profesionala vidusskola, according the agenda:
1. E-learning requires fulfillment of three conditions:
-ICT infrastructure,
-platforms program, which allows to create teaching materials,
-important teaching materials,
2. The forms of e-learning:
-presentation of training materials on the web,
-online support,
-asynchronous and synchronous training.
3. Mixed teaching.
4. Presentation of innovative method of teaching at a vocational school – how often, what skills will be checked, what skills the method would be applied, etc.
5. Discussion about the method

Participants were also working with the platform with supervision of the Leader durring training and educational course building by creating:
-lesson scenarios,
-lessons examples,
-presentation of possibilities using the platform.

International Partners Meeting – 2015 May 29 – Bialystok, POLAND

 

2015 April 12-14 (LT) & 2015 April 14-17 (LV)

International Partners Meeting (PL+LT+LV) – Baltoji Voke, LITHUANIA & Dougavpils, LATVIA.

In mid April we have prepared and conducted two meetings of international partners involved in the project (Polish, Lithuanian and Latvian Partners). Both of those meetings were developed for substantive support for the launch of work on the result No. 2 which will be prepared by the Latvian partnerDurring the meeting we were discussing the strategy, proposals for further actions and the use of tools prepared by the Leader to develop a methodology inside the project – the analysis of the individual activities, schools and market opportunities for their implementation.

We were discussing and solving the current problems, principles and forms of monitoring and developing project among partners, and had an overview of project outputs and results. We were also establishing methods and ways of implementation of the project results with continuous, ongoing contacts with the leader of the Partnership and Partners to carry out a coherent project activities.

Using the Leader advise we get into point that “the methodology” is not about the instructions or rules for Moodle usage itself – this is basically technical issue concerning only the Platform and it is not a method of teaching. Moodle should only be the tool used in implementing the method, not the method itself. What is more, the method should apply to teaching different subjects, not only Business English, so it cannot be a language teaching method, but something more general.

As a conclusion – methodology is a way of information transfer to students involved in the project, including evaluation criteria. Now we need to describe how we are going to teach your students, and later on how we are going to evaluate their work and knowledge. Moodle will only be the tool which will be used in this method – it will enable us to teach students vocational skills using an innovative teaching and learning environment. Lider agreed that the idea of blended learning is exactly what we will be aiming at – combining traditional learning in a classroom environment with distant and mobile learning with the use of ICT.

2014 November 19

Working month, project documents.

Project within strategic partnerships developed in the sector “KA2 Education and Vocational Training” (Erasmus + Program) is one of the most difficult to implement, because it involves international partners with own financial and legal procedures. So, that is way Project Teams are focusing in preparing the final shape of Partner Agreement with annexes, timetables and other basic documents which will be necessary inside the project. All project documents need to be a compromise between project consortium and need to be clear for all project members.

All project partners do their best to close that part till December.

Project Leader still is working with first Intellectual Output. All partners are updated about first ideas and proposals. We will discuss deeply during first project meeting in December.
