The trainings were very practical in nature. The participants got 18 useful practical tools to use for their classes and already created some materials during the meeting.

As one of the main idea of the project is to learn to use ICT tools for teaching and learning, one day was an orienteering game in the Tallinn old town where smartphones were used. The game was developed using the programme Loquiz.
