Conclusions and evaluation of the meeting

In the end, Mr. Feerick remarked that our project is actually an example of good practice especially because of:

  • the focus on ICT not just as technology and competences, but as a means of actually influencing and transforming the learning and teaching process, as well as curricular development;
  • the stress put on trying to develop networks and connections at different levels: the steering group, teachers and students.
