The second LTT Meeting of the DIDLL project took place in Escola Diocesana de Navàs (EDN)– in Navàs, Spain, from November 13th to 18th January 2020.
All the activities, accommodations and organization of the meeting were planned and established long before the partners arrived. We hold a meeting to explain all the details about the week, such as:
- Activities and Group Distribution:
- Teacher’s guide:
All the participants arrived in Navàs the Sunday before the meeting started. On arrival the students were greeted by the partner families and taken to their homes and the teachers were taken to the hotel that had been previously booked for them by the host country.
There were 26 foreign students arriving from Italy, Portugal, Macedonia, the Netherlands and Turkey. Also, 12 foreign teachers/ Principals took part in the LTT meeting in Navàs: 2 teachers from Italy, 4 teachers and the Principal from Turkey, 2 teachers from the Netherlands, 2 from Macedonia, and 2 teachers from Portugal. The host coordinators were Marc and Anna.
On Monday 13th January, at 8:30, the Welcome meeting formally began in the Conference Hall in the school. All the foreign students and teachers were welcomed into the host school in Navàs by the Catalan project coordinators and the Principal. Also, the Mayor of the town and the Legal Representative of the School did their speech. After that, the Catalan students offered a Theatre Play, which explained different Catalan traditions.
After the Welcome, the host students guided the guests on a tour around the school building.
Next, we all gathered in the main room where the host teachers explained the activities to be carried out along the week and organized the teams. Student learnt different abilities in the several workshops given (Escornabot, Lego, Scratch, Green Screen and Stop Motion). The aim of the workshops was to acquire the abilities the students would need to develop a product themselves and present it the last day in the Final Dive (Exhibition).
Also, students were taught a song, which was used every morning as a wake-up activity. The base of the song was taken from “Bon dia” song, by a Catalan group called Els Pets. The lyrics was modified specially for the mobility as follows:
We are all here today aaaah
To work on the Erasmus project DIDLL
In our school in Navàs
And 5 more schools from far away
We meet up in the morning aaaaah
And with this song we wish each other a good day
With a smile in our faces
And wiliness to learn a lot
BON DIA, the word Catalans use to say GOOD MORNING
And this is the best way to start our day
Together with all the new friends
On Friday with them we’ll wanna stay.
