INTEGRA – Erasmus+ international pupil exchange happening in OŠ Kungota
As a part of the Erasmus+ co-funded project INTEGRA (Founding the network of technology INTEGRAtionists in pupils’ informal education), the first international pupils’ exchange has been implemented in Slovenia.
Last week, over 50 pupils and teachers from Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia conducted a 3-days exchange in the primary school of OŠ Kungota. During the activity Slovenian students, with the help of their teachers, led technology masterclasses under the common heading “Technologies are exciting!” in which they implemented STEAM with regular subjects and robotics.
For the exchange, over 40 pieces of educational robots were co-financed by the European Union, and teachers and pupils got upskilled in the integration of robotics in the classroom.
The program was full of exciting activities, such as visits around Slovenia, folklore and cultural experiences, sports, and languages. The teachers got to experience a different methodological approach that served as an example of potential good practices and had the chance of networking.
This was the first of the four planned exchanges, in the upcoming ones, pupils and teachers from Slovenia will be traveling to Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia.
