Learning2gether Episode 234
Learning2gether Sun Sep 7 1400 GMT Hangout with Marijana Smolčec on the EU LLP Comenius project
Marijana Smolčec met with us in Hangout to tell us a little about the EU LLP Comenius project she has been working on for the past 2 years. This was her presentation topic at the recent RSCON5 online conference
At this event, Marijana explained how her European Comenius project connected students from 4-countries on a project where they simulated forming companies in their respective countries based on wholesome foods produced locally in each country, and how their funding allowed them to non-virtually transport the students to each of the 4 countries for events ranging from farmers’ markets that were in fact set up for the project (but in the videos look like the real thing), job interviews for one of the companies, and so on. They appeared on TV in their countries, produced eBooks, and the students learned a lot about business, culture, geography, cool tools to use in international communications both online and F2F and in documenting their experiences. This is really some amazing work with regards to commitment to teaching and engagement of students. Marijana has talked about this before but I got her to slow down, back up, explain how it got started. Since it was just the two of us and not time bound, we explored and I screen shared it all. Checking the video I see I managed to put up the screen share but except for a slip of the mouse at 53 minutes, did not have any of the usual talking heads in the recording. But I hope our followers will benefit from the recording.
