THE FIRST ERASMUS + TRAINING EVENT: LJUBLJANA, VIŽMARJE BROD PRIMARY SCHOOL
The project Green Micro:bit successfully started with the first teacher-training event at Vižmarje – Brod Primary School in Ljubljana. The event started on 24th October and ended on 28th October 2018. Project teams from Ljubljana, Slavonski Brod and Zagreb participated in the event. The purpose of the first training was project team meeting, managing project activities and education about using micro:bits in watering systems. The head teacher, the teachers and pupils at Vižmarje Brod Primary School prepared a warm welcome for project teams from Slavonski Brod and Zagreb. ITD school band was especially interesting. After the welcome programme, a project meeting and discussion about project deadlines, activities and dissemination were held.
The second day a workshop Micro:bit Water System was led by Sanja Jedrinović from the Faculty of Education in Ljubljana. At the workshop, teachers learned how to apply micro:bits in different school subjects, and then how to programme a simple programme for watering plants on the green wall, as well as some games.
The third day of the training included a visit to Slovenian cultural and geographical sights: Postojna cave, Portorož and Piran. During the travel, we exchanged project impressions, evaluated project activities and the hosts awarded the certificates of attendance to the guests. The first training event was a great international experience!
