The subject of the Croatian school was its cultural heritage and preservation. Therefore, the pupils of this school, in order to get to know the cultural heritage of their place, used Science after special study of the flora of the area, Technology through which historical monuments were analyzed while designing electronic monuments. the traditional ‘Mandala’ of Engineering where objects were made that depicted places and people symbolizing the cultural heritage of the place, Art, as a theatrical act was represented I was referring to the science and culture, and the Maths that are needed to understand and apply all of the above. All of these techniques and methods were introduced by teachers through the ERASMUS + KA2 program, who understood new practices that transmit information and promote it in an innovative way. The purpose of this move is, of course, to apply these methods to the school and disseminate it to the local community. Interacting with teachers from Belgium, Italy, Spain and Croatia of course prepares teachers but mainly benefits our school students, as the effort to move from the old to the new, from the traditional to the modern, from the usual to the innovation becomes even more intense and synchronized with new social and cultural contexts.

The online workshops were organized and followed by the Italian(Instituto Comprensivo di Loreto Aprutino), Croatian (Osnova Skola Jagode Truhelke) and Greek (Ekpedeftiria Bouga)students and educators. Even though they were not able to travel due to restrictions it was great that could at least take part in this way . Everyone had a great time doing the workshops. All activities were structured in the same way. Each partner incorporated the content they were responsible for within the project into a workshop. They presented it physically or online, and then the other partners conducted the workshop. This mobility was the end of a great co-operation in which we learnt a lot , met new people and exchanged good practices and ideas!
