  • 1. eTwinning the community for schools in Europe BETT 2013, London UK Anne Gilleran Central Support Service, Brussels
  • 2. What is project management? Thinking, reflecting, planning, predicting, evaluating... Basically, it’s an investment of time and effort Invest: to spend or devote for future advantage or benefit
  • 3. Three tips 1. At the beginning, relax and look forward 2. During the project, relax and look around 3. At the end, relax and look back
  • 4. Things to agree BEFORE Detect your needs: - What you are not happy with in your teaching - What you want to improve - What you want to try - What you can learn from each other
  • 5. Things to agree BEFORE Involve your students: - What they’d like to do How they’d like to learn What they already know What they can teach you Ask them! Negotiate with them!
  • 6. Things to agree BEFORE Some organization issues: - Number and age of students - Time to work in the project per week/month - Holiday periods - Timing - School ICT facilities - Number of schools involved - Teachers/subjects per school
  • 7. Things to agree BEFORE Set the objectives: - Concrete Realistic Measurable What final products are expected? How these products relate to the objectives? - How will they be evaluated?
  • 8. Things to agree BEFORE Done? Now, try to point out the strenghts and weaknesses of your plan Revise
  • 9. Aim at quality! A quality project doesn’t have to be spectacular, difficult, complex, long, or sophisticated. A quality project just has to be EFFICIENT Ask your NSS for quality criteria before starting
  • 10. Practice 1 (20 min.) Work in groups. If some possible partners are here with you, join them. 1. Define some objectives for your project idea 2. What concrete results/final products are expected for these objectives? 3. How will you assess them?
  • 11. Things to do DURING Think on the activities: - Are they motivating? Are they relevant? Do they require collaboration? Do NOT choose the tools first. Think upside down!
  • 12. Things to do DURING Monitoring: - Use the Project Cards - Evaluate - How will you evaluate? Use rubrics - Reflect, rethink, revise
  • 13. What is a rubric? Source: http://edweb.sdsu.edu/triton/tidepoolunit/rubrics/collrubric.html
  • 14. Practice 2 (20 minutes) 1. Design an activity for which collaboration is necessary 2. Think on an activity for which you don’t know which tool to use. 3. Describe #2 at http://wallwisher.com/wall/strunjan
  • 15. Things to make you think AFTER Evaluate the project (remember the rubrics?): - Ask students and teachers - Check objectives and results - What would you change in further projects?
  • 16. Things to make you think AFTER Reorganize material: - Can a third person follow the development of the project? - Is the TwinSpace clear? - Is there enough documentation? - What should be public and what should be kept private?
  • 17. Things to make you think AFTER Are you satisfied? Then, why don’t you go for a Quality Label? - Ask your NSS - Create a “visitor” for evaluators - QL application is only a guide for evaluators: if you have more documentation, add it in the TwinSpace - Put yourself in the place of an evaluator: is everything clear?
  • 18. One most important tip Have fun!
  • 19. Practice 3 (10 minutes) - Think in a dissemination campaing. - How can you make the project sustainable in your school? - Which of the 6 quality criteria will be the most difficult to reach? And the easiest?
