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.

.Advantages of such a use for Transition. Innovative use
Pupils learn how to select information and categorize them (i.e. according to timeline). They gain new knowledge about Shakespeare – new wider contexts, links to his dramas in different literary works, films and associated paintings. All information can be found in one account on Facebook. Each pupil can access anytime and find, quickly, this information and refresh his knowledge about Shakespeare and his works. The same approach can be used with others authors. FB is stimulating and attractive for pupils. Advantages for transitions: learning how to search, collect, process and assimilate new knowledge and skills.

.Disadvantages of such a use
In FB account users cannot make a target search among contents. Info in a FB account is shown in a timeline without the possibility to organize and search them.
