Today, at first we presented and explicated to the Alumni’s group what we did at the open house day and how we organized it.
In a second part, each of the three subgroups received a new mission in relation with what they did for the open house day:
The subgroup charged of writing the satisfaction Survey is now in charge to enter the results of their Survey in a excel program. In order to be able to process it later, they have to adapt what they already did on excel to the answers of the free comment section on the survey.
The subgroup that had to take pictures and videos and do some interviews of teachers, school children and families for the open house day, now have to make a montage of it.
And the last subgroup charged of organizing the open house day, is now charged to be the translator group for all our productions.
Today, there were not many of us because some classes were not at school.
The teachers have told us that we will have to write a CV for the European Union and explained us how to do it. Then, a part of us started to process the results of the survey that we had done during the open house day. And it seems it is going to take quite a long time.
Another group has begun a presentation about the French education system. They have to build a short Powerpoint Presentation that they will present in Spain, so they started searching information, pictures, graphs, etc.
Our work group, which is responsible for working on the School Open House Day, was split into three subgroups. For each subgroup there are three students.
The first subgroup, with people who will not be able to attend the Open House Day, is dealing with the survey about to be given on Saturday. Indeed, those surveys used over the past few years were not suitable for statistical analysis. So the group has made a new one which aimed at simpler, quantifiable questions.
The second subgroup is taking care of the organization of the day. Quite simply, they will manage all the younger student guides to the school who will attend the School Open House Day. They have planned where the students should go and what they will have to show to the families who turn up.
In the third subgroup, we are supposed to make a report of Saturday, and in the order to do that, we have to interview people (teachers, school children, families…) and to take photos of the event. So I brought my camera along and we carried out the interviews. And of course we came up with a few questions we can put to people on Saturday.
Today the French students learned about the WordPress blog and how to add a post.
They were also shown the Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts.
The students were divided into three work groups for the next few activities:
Preparing and surveying the school’s Open Day
Making a film about the school and the Erasmus+ project
Making films and surveys at Old School Network forum
In each of these groups, there will be students whose responsibility it is to add a diary post.
Finally, the students were given their eTwinning accounts and for next week all the students have to update their profile picture and add a message to the Forum thread to introduce themselves and their expectations to the international group in English. Work has really started!
Today the French team of nine teachers presented the project for the first time to the 25+ students present.
The students were given the chance to candidate both for which of the three work groups they felt most suited to, as well as for which of the three foreign workshop destinations attracted them the most. Of course, the teachers will have to weigh up the needs of each group and activity, so not everyone will get their first choice. But still, we have to hope that European democracy still means something!
For the second part of the session, students took turns in chatting with the German team as part of a videoconference. While lack of preparation and stress made it hard for some of the French students, we were all impressed by the great language skills of the German students. Something for the French students to work towards!
An exciting new Erasmus+ project connecting schools from France, Germany, Poland and Spain
