We were invited to present our work at teacher training in CNC technology. The teachers present at this workshop were form schools from the field of mechanical engineering. The field of mechanical engineering is very fast changing and we think that this field would be most appropriate to be introduced to e-learning.
The feedback was very positive and their opinion was that this e-course would be special suitable for young teacher who are good with technology but not that good in pedagogy of using it in e-learning.
We were honored to be able to present our work to the leaders of study groups for teachers from the field of mechanical engineering. They will be the ambassadors for spreading the word about the project and its results among mechanical engineering schools in Slovenia. We wanted to give them very good and broad information about the project and special about e-course and facilitators handbook.
We have manage to get another meeting that will be on October the 14th with the aim to invite more teachers to participate in this e-course that will be implemented through the program of further education and training for teachers. This program is organized by Ministry for education of Slovenia.
Yesterday (24th of September) we met with very interesting group of leaders of study groups for teachers from the field of mechanical engineering. They will be the ambassadors for spreading the word about the project and its results among mechanical engineering schools in Slovenia. We wanted to give them very good and broad information about the project and special about e-course and facilitators handbook.
The response was very positive and we manage to organize another meeting in the middle of October where we will be presenting the e-course to the potential e-course participants.
On Wednesday, 28th of August we had our second workshop at Biotechnical Educational Centre Ljubljana. Teacher at Centre were very interested but had some doubts about the amount of time and work that had to be invested in ending the e-course. They are thinking about using parts of the e-course in their classes.
We are back from holidays and ready to rock and roll with our exploitation workshop. First one was held up on Tuesday 19th of August 2014 for colleagues at CPI that will be our ambassadors for spreading the word about our good project results.
The next workshops will be organised at our vocational schools all over Slovenia.
On the Polish eVET2EDU course we have already reached to the Module 5 where learners are facing the challenge of making short educational videos and publishing them on YouTube. They are getting on well and they are experimenting, arranging themselves online and thinking of e-tivities – which is important for us as facilitators.
Polish learners had already created 21 videos gathered inplaylist within the official eVET2EDU channel. The plan is to create different playlists for each partners’ country with videos from Module 5. So more will come.
From the previous blog post you already know the magnificent promotional video from Online EDUCA Berlin 2013 which was created by our Norwegian colleagues from HIST. This is another thing that can be found on evet2edu YouTube channel. If you are interested how we were working during 3rd meeting in Palermo or would like to see how Spanish team conducted the videoconference in Module 3, you will find recording from these events on YouTube as well. YouTube here we come!
For the dissemination activities small leaflet in a form of project business card was designed and printed. We have prepared it in all partners’ languages to maximase the scope of disseminating the project results. National versions of b-card will allow us to contact VET teachers and trainers on local events organised in partners countries for VET sector.
