Teaching/learning activities in French nature

On September 26 th – 30 th , the  team of Erasmus+ K2 for the 2 General Education Session  of interschool strategic partnership project “Active in nature, enjoying the nature!” visited the French St. Gervais town’s school – Collåge des Ecrivains Combattants. During the teaching/learning activities, students took part in geography, chemistry, English, PE and nature lessons. Other activities took place in the wild. The participants were climbing „Clocher de Neyran“, biking 14 kilometres into the campsite where they styed over the night. A real test – kayaking in the mountain river was waiting after the campfire. Everyone wearing special suits and helmets was very eager to start kayaking as soon as possible, but it was not as easy as it seemed to be – everybody stuck among the stones at least once. Despite the difficulties, everyone enjoyed this activity very much. The trip to Montpellier also left a great impression. A challenge to try out sailboats, catamaran and windsurfing was waiting in the Lion Bay. On the last day, the pupils played games and then all the project participants and lots of local government and community representatives attended the school ceremony, during which the school was given the name of writer-fighters for freedom. Interesting activities ended with a general party for all the project participants and pupils’ parents.

The teachers were acquainted with the French education system, shared their best experiences in organising formal and non-formal education. They discussed the teaching methods, the forms on conducting the lessons, educational environments, reviewed done tasks, the issues of preparation of the final product and planned further project activities. The team members established collaborative, communication skills in a foreign language, familiarized French nature and culture in a multicultural environment throughout the week.

Klaipeda region’s educational institutions “Project Fair” was held in Gedminai progymnasium on 4th February.  The fair was really fruitful – there were 55 projects presented from Klaipeda, Klaipeda district, Silute district and Plunge educational institutions. Students, teachers and various education related individuals from 30 institutions creatively presented school, national, international (Erasmus+, Lifelong Learning, eTwinning, Nordplus, the EU Structural Funds) project activities enriching school life and the whole process of education. Participant innovatively showed their designed products, demonstrated how they are continuing their project activities which have already ended. All the participants shared joyful mood, got new ideas, teachers and students discussed the success of the project, the impact on the institution community, funds, programs and partner search as well as project application and the whole project implementation. Honored guests of the event from The department of Education and Culture of the municipality of Klaipeda City, Klaipeda Teachers` Center for Culture and Education and Klaipeda Pedagogical Psychological Service were delighted by excellent presentations.

Probably the best assessment of the event was participants‘ impressions, experiences recorded on the evaluation wall and the questions „Will we be able to participate again next year?“

The prizes for the “Project Fair” attendees were established by Education Exchanges Support Foundation, JSC „Eurobiuras“ and PI “Edukateka
