About the project

Information about the project:

The project is called “Supporting the fight against digital exclusion of people with disabilities with the power of an international team". 

We arrived in a group of 33 students with 4 teachers, 2 of them teaching English. We travelled by bus. 

It started on September 20th and lasted 10 days. We stayed at Poseidon Palace hotel near Leptokarya. Our beautiful residence was located just by the beach which was fantastic and very attractive. Settling in was an easy task to accomplish. 

We spent a lot of time working hard on achieving goals of our mobility. 

We also had an occasion to take part in a lot of sightseing. We’ve been to Leptokarya, Palaios Panteleimonas, Bath of Zeus and Meteors Monasteries. We also visited an island of Skhiatos. 

But our trip wasn’t only about having fun. We also worked very hard on creating this website. 

Informatics part of our group also had lessons in analising websites in terms of WCAG compapibility, and about menaging data bases. 

Socio-lingual profile students had courses in rhethorics and art of beautifull speach.  

We also had an opportunity to get to know a lot of great Greek people, who helped us with translation to their native language. 

This mobility allowed us to get to know each other as well as meet interesting new people.  We achieved all our purposes and earned a lot of important information while developing key competences, which are included in the Polish curriculum. This amazing trip helped us improve our language skills along with other ones, like creating websites for people with disabilities or improving our rhetorical skills. The tour was also an opportunity for development for our teachers. They were able to discover Greek culture with us aswell. 

General results:

  • In the time of the project, we increased our key competences, extended our knowledge and learned how to work in a project group, which made us more valuable employees.

  • We had an occasion to gain practical skills in using digital resources and tools.

  • We increased our engagement, especially after many months of remote learning which was a hard and unmotivating way to study.

  • We have become good role models and have encouraged our peers to study harder and have motivated them to broaden their horizons.

  • We gained power to plan future mobility projects and to show teachers that those team works are very valuable for us.

  • Our work will encourage other students to learn more and discover knowledge extensively.

  • We promoted the slogans of European cooperation.

  • Thanks to the European Union even students from families with tough financial situations could experience the world outside Poland.

  • We learned lots of specialistic vocabulary in this specific area.

  • We got to experience the daily life of people from Greece and learn a lot about their country.

  • While we were working on the project our WordPress skills skyrocketed.

  • We gained confidence in public presentation.

Results for individual groups:

  • For the teachers  it was an opportunity to improve their professional qualifications, to strengthen their competences in organising international mobility and to enhance personal development, which resulted in motivation to work.

  • The school has thus been able to lay the foundations for an educational programme rich in pedagogical innovations and has achieved tangible results (web pages, information brochures, etc.) which, in addition to promoting our school, also inform about the sources of project funding and its details.

For students it was a good occasion to see what disabled people struggle with daily and try to help them. It is also a good way to learn how to develop web pages and master language skills in a natural way – by speaking to each other.
