The first training for the teachers was held in October 2017. Teachers and trainers from the Institute ‘IIS Da Vinci’, Essenia UETP, Keilir and MTR met in El Rompido, Spain, hosted by the project partner Inercia Digital. The ten participants had a five-day course focused on Flipped Method, and had the occasion to get to know this teaching method from representatives from Keilir and MTR, organizations with a great expertise in implementing it, while Inercia Digital, dealing with digital education, offered its knowledge on useful ICT tools to use for lesson preparation.
The first mobility of VET learners was carried out simultaneously to the first training course for teachers in October 2017 in Spain. Five students from IIS Da Vinci and five from MTR were involved in the experimentation of activities with flipped method, using ICT tools and apps to produce video lessons. A fruitful exchange between the Icelandic students, already familiar with the method and the Italian ones, at their first experience with flipping took place. Furthermore, the experience was for them the occasion for improving their communication skills in English, their intercultural competences and know a bit more of foreign cultures, including the one of the hosting Country, Spain.
