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.

.Category of the tool


.Language of the tool or resource

.Purpose of use
Through a really well known social network, create a public space where users talk about transition experience

.Way of use (as individual or group activity; tasks; etc.)
Like a forum, users can share experience just telling it to the other or uploading multimedia resources or documents. The other users can actively participate replying or posting something or just following discussions. Italian students interviewed, tell us that they use them just following discussions and for finding some interesting resource. They never participate actively to discussions. The majority of our teachers, unfortunately, do not agree on the use of this tool for scholastic purposes. They don't have an account.

.Advantages of such a use for Transition. Innovative use
Ability to search and filter information. Almost all young people have a Facebook account so it could be one of the best tools for reaching a wider number of people, moreover it is easy for them to use it. It's important to involve students which already "passed" transition.

.Disadvantages of such a use
These groups born directly from students who want to share their experience or need to find specific information. This fact could become a disadvantage if you consider the sustainability of it: when these students passed to the university or labour market they wouldn't be active anymore there. So, a moderator is necessary in order to assure the future to these kind of environment.
