The Kras representative aims to aid the project by giving advice on how to reach these vulnerable target groups and they would like to test the outcome on their target groups.
      2. Wendy from Bednet: Bednet is an organization that wants to provide real-time live internet education. Children can participate in their class from home with a camera. The purpose is supporting the learning process and promoting social contact. Their target audience are children and youngster how can’t physically or mentally visit the school. They use custom hardware and software. The powerpoint used by Wendy is enclosed. Bednet is interested in the project because sometimes children are too sick to follow a lesson. They can add to the project with their technical and social know-how.
    2. The other participants introduce themselves briefly

  5. After lunch, the group is split in two
    1. Guy tries out his e-lesson, together with Ennio
    2. Anika gives an interactive lecture on her views on e-learning. Powerpoint is attached.
  6. Project progress so far
    1. August: project was approved, what’s app group was founded, etc.
    2. Moby click was introduced to the schools of the participating schools (juni in Nereto, august 26 in Michelstadt, casually in Kinna, but not yet for the whole school)
    3. Moby click weekly was launched
  7. First lessons: E-learning lessons were tried out in Merksem in september, Swedish lessons exist in Kinna. The object of these lessons is to take these lessons and show these lessons to students of other countries. The lessons should be in English or with english subtitles. Guy points out that according to the AF the lessons should be about informatics or English. Ennio points out that we are now in the phase of finding out the best methodology, so in this phase the subject of the lessons is not the most important thing, but rather to assess which methodology is the best. The different schools use different tools and have different methods, so we should analyze and compare. Guy fears that the dissemination of the project won’t be as large as when you would make some arrangements. Annika points out that we haven’t decided on a number of terminology, for example “what is a lesson”.
    The most important part is the methodology, not the content. So the compromise is proposed to define a number of study-fields
    The question is: what is this project about? Is it about making lessons or is it about introduce e-learning to students. Or should it be that the students make their own lessons? This point shall be discussed on later.
  8. Terminology: what is the terminology that will be used? TEL (technology enhanced learning)
  9. Dates for the next meetings
    1. Michelstadt (8-12 may 2017): during the european week in Michelstadt. Question from Michelstadt: should the project be involved in the discussion with the local politicians? This would be something extra but is difficult to integrate in the project. However the politicians could be asked how they see the future of learning or about funding of TEL.
      During this meetings there should be mostely some: getting to know the tools, hands-on experience
    2. Antwerp: 23/10/2017-28/10/2017
    3. Nereto: 12/03/2018-16/03/2018
    4. Antwerp multiplier event: 14/05/2016-18/05/2018 (to be determined)
  10. Hardware baseline survey
    1. To add:
      1. questions about connectivity to presentation devices and projectors
      2. Questions about the hardware devices the students have access to (e.g. at home, at school, internet connection at home, through library)
    2. Baseline survey
      1. Combine first and second part, for every question the option yes or no and then be able to choose.
      2. Replace word technology with “educational tools”, second question are materials
      3. Additional questions: are you using e-learning platforms?
      4. Remove question “students work in pairs) because this is a measurement of social things or class management. There should be question about students making their own tutorials. Last part: something about following school from home when they are ill or sick.
      5. Same questionnaire should be used for students and teachers. The aim of this is to compare the answers of the students and the teachers.
