5.Use of technology (max. 200 words) *


Please describe how technology has been used to further the work of the project both by your partners and you, and by the pupils.

 

We used
eTwinning tools: twinblog & twinspace
A website for the publications of the results http://www.eratosthenes.eu
Collaborative plateforms http://www.fondation-lamap.org/eratos and ciese.org/curriculum/noonday for collaborative work
Each school also publishes its measure on google drive sheets. Of course students can make the calculation for their own school, but the automatic calculation is necessary when the number of schools is important for the choice of the best partnership. In march 35 schools, 7 days of measurements, (6+15+21+36+36+91+91=296 calculations)
Teachers use Social Network group to plan the measurements and the videoconference planning and to communicate the results of the measurements in real time: (open Facebook group of 175 members) : https://www.facebook.com/groups/Eratos/
Videoconference for live communication between students
