During the first two years of the project the eLene2learn network collected more than 60 case studies, where teachers and students of Secondary and Higher Education provide practical tips and indications on their "first hand" learning experiences using ICT and digital media. This "collection" contains two different types of report:
- The "How to guide" scenarios describe current practices, tools and methodologies used in the application of ICT to develop learning to learn competencies. The scenarios were collected through Focus Group with students and teachers; Download the printable version of the "How to guide"
- The Case studies report, in detail the implementation of practices, methodologies and tools used within real classroom settings. Recommendations and suggestions help you assess the benefit of replicating these practices, methodologies, etc. in your own context. These resources are highly valuable as they come from a direct evaluation by students and teachers involved. Some of these resources are (also) partly available in Italian, French, Greek, Finnish, Polish, Spanish and German. If the translations are available, you can find the translations directly on the sub-pages of each case study. (The most recent Case Studies are listed first on the top); Download the printable version of the Implementation Report.
You can browse the case studies here by Benefits and Tags. The two different type of report can be easily filtered using corresponding tags.

Case Study "Tristanos" (scoop.it) -EA
Participants were fully informed about the eLene2learn project and parents signed consent forms so as to allow us use our final digital material anyhow.
(with particular attention paid to the initial aims and objectives of the implementation plan and the key competencies developed)
Needless to say that since we are talking about SE students we should always bear in mind that their time was limited and as a result they had to work fast and totally cooperate with each other. This really boosted their ability to overcome any kind of obstacles and made them better at making decisions and solving problems.
Our students seemed really motivated in using scoop.it and highly confident that they can gain valuable experience through that process.
To begin with we can create more than one group and consequently work on many more issues.
We can motivate students to use it more often by assigning them specific tasks to complete that have to do with topics we may have discussed in class.
We can also motivate them so as to search information regarding an issue included in the site and either post this information or use it in class to serve our need for extra practice on any kind of grammar or vocabulary area.
A lesson can never be boring or dull having an online connection in class.
SE books provide information mainly based on specific topics revolving around environment, education, sports etc.
An online magazine gives teachers the chance to broaden their students' interests and simultaneously their horizons.
Needless to say that many projects can be launched based on the issues discussed in scoop.it.
Since students have to follow topics, find information to enrich their possible column and exchange ideas on it, it goes without saying that all the above-mentioned competencies are enhanced.
Students also get highly motivated to monitor their topic and the appeal their comments have. This way their motivation and self- confidence is extremely boosted.
They are exposed to a variety of issues and topics on a regular basis and since these topics may work as discussion starters they are engaged in an on going process of improving their competencies regarding thinking, analysing and self-regulating.
