Overall the project was deemed to be ambitious yet credible with very achievable results which will be of benefit to all our pupils.
It was agreed that an official lesson plan/assessment form would need to be designed.
At the end of the project there should be intellectual products which should have a copyright and publishable as well as useable in other countries and schools eg ‘Value’ Teaching Manual/Scheme of Work/Lesson Plans/Curriculum. The draft of this will be a workable document with additions from participating schools.
The quality of the project is vitally important; there is the possibility of fines for not meeting quality targets.
It was noted that all contracts should be signed and returned as this had not yet been done by all.
Further Finance Discussion
 
There will be a Mobility Tool available in the near future which must be completed for all mobilities.
Transnational Meetings for Teachers (for discussion and organisation)
Denmark (May 2015)
Greece (Early October 2015)
London (May 2016)
There will be the option of Skype meetings should it be deemed necessary.
 
Pupil Mobilities
Poland
Greece
Denmark
Portugal
May be more economical to have pupil mobilities running at the same time as transnational meetings.
*discussion of ideas for in-school projects*
Inc winemaking, value curriculum, board games, recycling project.
When projects are completed they should be uploaded and shared via an online platform.
March Target – Values (three) being applied in schools (to be agreed at tomorrow’s meeting).
Day Two
All delegates were in attendance
It was agreed by all that the first set of Values would be ‘Responsibility’, ‘Honesty’ and ‘Respect’.
‘Communication’ and ‘Self Esteem’ should be present within all the chosen values with Key competencies, skills and outcomes.
The chosen values will be agreed basic humanitarian values.  (see the list of values from Cornelia’s notes)
All participating countries will be working on the first three values until March 2015 (Danish transnational meeting).
The presentations in Denmark should be based around activities conducted in school focusing on those three values.
Throughout year one of the ‘Values and Student Entrepreneurs’ project the children will be learning about the list of chosen values. During year two, the pupils will apply all the learnt values during the running of their project alongside risk-taking, creativity, innovation, generosity.
Initially the workload will be divided thus:
eTwinning – Romania & Portugal
Website – Spain
Blog – Greece
Evaluation Form – Poland & Denmark
Minutes – UK
Lesson Plan Template – UK (to be emailed to all as soon as possible)
Reminder for student mobility
You must be able to justify and explain how children have been chosen to participate in the mobilities. There will be an online questionnaire. Please remember to retain all official documentation relating to mobility trips.
Reminder for transnational meetings
