    • Daily reports“Can you feel solidarity with people you haven’tmet?” This question leads to a discussion of adefinition of the word Solidarity. What do weconsider as being solidaric? Is it only a feeling ordoes it require an action behind the feeling? Youcan compare it with solidarity versus charity?We Danes were surprised to find that so manycountries did so many different things for theelderly, which is similar to Denmark.” Danish team
    • Daily reports (2)“It was interesting to exchange ideas andopinions regarding solidarity with people fromdifferent countries. We realized that althoughwe are from different cultures there are thesome problems in our society nowadays. Wereally enjoyed the opportunity to be creative andworking together in groups where everyone gotinvolved and everybody could improve the socialskills.” Austrian team
    • Lesson observation• “In Belgium we only have one teacher per classroom and we could use more teachers to help more students. The things that caught my attention are:• The quality of the student’s work displayed on the walls• Codes used while teaching: clapping, students have to ask before leaving their chair and the importance of respect for both students and teacher.• The use of different houses – colouring, story reading &telling etc.• Classrooms were old fashioned, but all had smart boards and were very colourful.• Point system to mark good and bad behaviour.”
    • Lesson observation (2)• “In Norway we only have one teacher per class and assistants depending on needs. I feel like we have more structure, silence, and order than what I experienced here. My expectations might have been a little high; I thought they had very high structure, order, and respect.”
