.Case studies .Case studies

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.

.Pedagogical approach taken On university e-learning platforms courses are set up (for each Faculty). On the platforms there are special electronic materials (e-book and online guidelines) and online test is prepared.
There is also a special online questionnaire for evaluation of the course and its effectiveness (by the students).
Each faculty students have an access to the course (and materials) during whole project but there are special time slots for passing online test by different groups of students. Each student has to answer 10 different questions (there is a pool of 50 questions and system is choosing questions for a given student – questions and answers are mixing all the time).

1 teacher is responsible for materials (resources) and test questions. After passing the test he gives them credit.
.Methods of evaluation Project will be evaluated

1) By students: an on-line questionnaire will be sent to all students who take part in course to evaluate their experience in terms of materials, online tools and project approach.
2) By teacher: personal interview with teachers who take part in this project for reflecting on his experience.
.Ethical statement Participants will be fully informed that data collected through the questionnaires will used to inform the project and will be anonymised.
Participants will be fully informed that the results of the evaluation will be shared with them.
