Comenius individual pupil mobility

Hello everybody,

since I know many of us are involved in Comenius projects, I thought maybe you'll be interested in Comenius individual pupil mobility as well.

Comenius individual pupil mobility is the newborn in the "Comenius family" (it's been running for the first year in this 2010) and it involves Upper Secondary schools - for the moment, only in some EU countries.

Secondary schools that are or have been involved in a Comenius School Partnership can apply for grants to send pupils to one or more of their Comenius partner schools. This action gives the secondary school pupils the chance to spend between 3 and 10 months in a host school and a host family abroad. It broadens their understanding of the diversity of European cultures and languages and helps them to acquire the skills they need for their personal development. Please note that this year only the schools from the following countries can participate in the action: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Norway, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden.

Too bad I teach in a Lower Secondary school - and too bad I'm not a student!!! I would have loved this.

If you're running a successful Comenius project and you'd like your pupils to try something new and challenging, you can learn more about Comenius individual pupil mobility in the European Commission website (or just ask your NA!).

Have fun you all, and keep up experimenting with LLP!

Italiano-che bella lingua!!

Dear LLT Friends,
as you know, together with Laura, we have an eTwinning project: Be Twin- twinning up the everyday lesson.
I am really happy, the project gives a really strong motivation to my pupils to study Italian languague, as the languague of our friends. Children learn Italian, changed messages on Pupils' corner, and letters by fax. So, the project helps building friendship and helps me, as a techer to make Italian lessons using ICT tools with my pupils.
Hungarian twins had the possibility to take part in a summer camp, where one of our Italian lesson was registered. It was a part of a national competition, where our task was make lessons with ICT tools, digital board.
For us it was a pleasure to take an Italian lesson, and we used ICT tools, what we use together with our Italian friends on TwinSpace as well.
We are happy, because at the and our lesson and project is between the best projects in the competition.
I would like to give you a link, where you can see a part of our special Italian lesson.
Hope, you like it.:-)
