After 30 months of implementation, the Digital Garden for European schools – DigiEU project ended on February 28, 2022.
Thanks to the collaboration of all partners: Liceul Teoreticu Marin Preda (RO), Cross Culture International Foundation Cyprus (CY), Municipio de Lousada (PT), Danmar Computers sp (PL), led by Petit Pas Aps (IT), we were able to achieve all project objectives, create two project results, improve skills, promote practices, innovative work, learning, comparison and innovative pedagogical and educational tools such as the TEAL methodology.
Let’s take a closer look at our project in numbers
• 2 project results
• 5 participating organizations
• 18 participants involved in the short-term staff training event
• Over 300 participants involved in awareness and dissemination events
• More than 1000 people reached through social media
Despite the difficulties arising from the pandemic outburst, only few months after the beginning of the project, the constant collaboration of the partners and the quick reshaping of the activities in online mode, allowed the project work to continue, giving birth to our two project results: the Teal Garden Classroom Toolkit and the game app called Garden-App.
2. The Garden-App is a game thanks to which users can build their virtual garden on their smartphones, plant different crops depending on the country chosen, and acquire information on seasonality, harvest times, and crop management thanks to the game’s blog section and the surprise quizzes that pops-up during each game session to test the acquired knowledge and allow the player to earn bonus points to expand their own virtual garden.
These two results, working in synergy with each other, give life to informal learning using traditional tools (the manual) and technological tools (the game app) according to the guidelines of the TEAL method.
During the last month of the project, the partners organized Multiplier Events to involve teachers, national institutions, regional and local authorities, and schools to disseminate the project and its results as a useful resource in training contexts and beyond.
Hoping that our work could have been of help to make your lessons more engaging and interactive, we invite you to download our results for free and ready to be used at this link
A big thank you to all those who followed the Digital Garden for European Schools – DigiEU project
