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.

Fuksiwiki - A wiki to guide the 1st year students

.Level (age of students)
First year students of HE

.Discipline/subject
Computer Science

.Category of the tool
$Category.getData()

.Tool/resources
Wiki

.Language of the tool or resource
Finnish

.Purpose of use
In this wiki the members of the student organization in the Department of Computer Science have collected a lot of information for the first year students: information about practical issues, the first study term's timetables, tutors, user accounts, enrolment for the courses; issues related to learning and learning strategies, softwares for communication (e.g. Internet Relay Chat) etc. The aim of the wiki is to help the first year students to feel home and to be able to act independently. Also older students use the wiki as a main source of information for example in situations where basic things like user accounts change.

.Way of use (as individual or group activity; tasks; etc.)
The wiki is used collaboratively and individually. In the wiki, the answers for questions coming up regularly in the general IRC chat or in IRC of the study courses are saved for the use of all students.

.Learn2Learn competencies
Self-regulation
Thinking, problem solving and decision making
Collaboration

.Advantages of such a use for Transition. Innovative use
From a tutor's point of view: every tutor uses the wiki to get information -> every freshman asking the same question will get the same answer. It would be hard for tutors to get all the information by themselves, so it's much easier to divide the information search process and collect the results. Wiki is easy to edit, so that when information changes, it's easy to update. It's also easier this way to spot conflicting information (because information comes from many different sources) and find out what's correct.

.Disadvantages of such a use
There have to be procedures for structuring and writing, so that the end result is coherent for the user to use. Also it's a problem if people who should know answers to questions do not read the wiki (the information is collected but not used).
