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.

Learning diary - Reflection of Learning Process (Mahara)
Students learn to keep an eye on their learning process and - if necessary – to ask for support.
• Motivation & self-confidence
• Each student creates and uses his or her own diary.
• Students must answer predefined questions to structure their work.
• Students decide if and what they will present to the lecturer (or another student as a peer).
• Teachers discuss with the student (individually or anonymous in the group) if there are problems in the learning process and how to solve them.
Time spent for Teachers feedback is part of the workload and depends on the group size. For a group size of 10 students the time spent is about 2 hours.
Participants are informed
• about the use of the collected data for the improvement and development of their course and for the elene2learn Life Long Learning Project,
• that data collected will be anonymised and that they can choose not to have their data used in the elene2learn Life Long Learning Project and
• that the results of the evaluation will be shared with them.
(with particular attention paid to the initial aims and objectives of the implementation plan and the key competencies developed)
• Structured learning approach
• Creative, more intrinsically based learning
• Transparent targets
Many technical problems in the beginning, with the new system.
We won´t do weekly tests no more.
We won´t have an exam by the end of the course again, because of the workload.
Beware that the given comments / feedbacks are relevant (more intense) and not just funny.
An integrated approach of the used application for ePortfolio and existing learning management system is necessary to have smooth (didactical) workflows and to avoid media overkill.
• It is better to grade the diaries
• Don´t focus on self-reflexion
