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.

Google docs to create collaborative contents

.Level (age of students)
Teacher and student SE


.Category of the tool

Google docs

.Language of the tool or resource

.Purpose of use
To create new contents in a collaborative way.

.Way of use (as individual or group activity; tasks; etc.)
Students use Google Docs mainly to share notes with their classmates taken during lessons at school. Each student can contribute adding their notes or comments. The .doc format is the one usually used. It's quite easy to add other kind of resources such as links, videos or images. Teachers are less used to it. They know it but the majority of them never used it. During discussion they become more aware about possible uses: - working together with their students (for example: asking them to publish their group work there and correct them directly online). - working together with colleagues preparing didactic materials or, for example, sharing informatics lab timetable.

.Disadvantages of such a use
Before starting, it's necessary to invest time on defining main behaviour rules to guarantee effective collaboration.
