Project done, what is next?

 


What will you do when the project is finished?

What were your experiences during the project?

Did you work with your students on a project by e-mail or Wiki? Then you have to do something with the results! Here are a few ways to share your experiences: 

  • You could make a presentation on the website of your school.
  • Students could present their project by computer computer/beamer/Smartboard to their peers.
  • You could organize a parents evening and let the students present the project.
  • How about an article in the school newspaper, local television etc.
  • Colour posters have great attraction and can be shown around the school.
  • Students can create a booklet as a nice reminder.
  • You can send text and pictures to the school's webmaster to be features on the school's website.

 

What did you learn? 

Students and teachers should be encouraged to share successes and challenges experienced during the project. These can be expressed through a variety of reflection activities, such as:

  • web log
  • essay
  • journal
  • booklets
  • collages
  • visual presentations (video clips, Power Point, etc.)
  • formal presentation to parents and/or community

 

Where do we go from here? 

Evaluation is a necessary part of the process. Make sure that the pupils know beforehand that the project will be evaluated and in what way; then it is clear for everyone. Input and feedback may be collected in a number of ways, including:

  • questionnaire (electronic learning environment, on paper, etc.)
  • parents meeting with presentations from participants and reflection
  • round table discussion
  • parent survey, teacher survey, student survey
  • feedback from partner school/district/country
  

Points to consider for future projects

  • Take initiative
  • Contact foreign schools (via e-twinning.com, etc)
  • Collaborate with colleagues, students, parents, community
  • Be aware of the time commitment
  • Don't underestimate the joy you share in Internationalisation
  • Don't lose any time, find a partner for international projects quickly

 

Conclusion

Finally, be sure to celebrate!!

 

Take time to celebrate the experiences with all project participants through continued communication via:

  • video conference
  • Skype
  • e-mail
  • Wikispaces
  • Bridgit
  • letters
  • postcards

 

Enjoy your project together!
