New and interesting properties were added to the social and a pedagogical guide was also outlined while a streaming videoconference with USPU was taking place. The meeting set the basis of our future duties and controlled the main responsabilities of each partner. It should be also highlighted how the testing process with real students will take place by the end of 2015.

 

The meeting passed by smoothly and our time there was evaluated as suberb. Linz is a lovely city which lies on the Danube. Linz cultivates vitality and culture, and particularly on the Danube, this comes to obvious fruition. The Danube is a stage for life in Linz.

SOLE TRANSNATIONAL MEETING European Conference on Innovation in Education and Ecotourism

 

The European Erasmus+ project on high education SOLE (Social Open Learning Environment), coordinated by the CEEDCV (Spain), has organized a multiplier event on a One-Day Conference on Innovation in Education and  Ecotourism”with the participation of the education sector, social agents and also enterpreneurs and skateholders from the  tourism sector.

 

TRANSANTIONAL MEETINGS

 

 

The One-Day Conference was held on Saturday May 14th in the Complejo la Petxina located in Valencia. Remarkable speakers at local and international level presented communications around three main themes: the importance of European projects, innovative practices in high education, best practices of tourism and ecotourism practices in the Region of Valencia.

During the Conference there were chances to introduce the audience to the SOLE SOCIAL and its potential in the teaching/learning practices and it was evaluated in a very positive way.

Other institutions like Invattur, the Conselleria de Medioambiente of Valencia, the Coordinadora de los Bosques del Túriz and the City Town hall of Riba-roja presented their projects and work on Tourism and its incidence in society.

A European atmosphere was created by including speakers from Germany, Italy, Poland and the United Kingdom. Roland Klug from Germany presented an interesting paper about procedures and techniques to reduce the number of dropdown in adult population. The communication was supported by means of a live animated visual presentation. Manju Nair from Changemakers in London talked about the the importance of introducing the multicultural and social competences in education in order to adapt education to the current times and train the new citizens of the 21st. century.

 

Two partners of the SOLE project from Krosno and Milano, Chris Brighton and Giovanni Grieco introduced their papers about collaborative methodologies in high education and a case of study on Geoparks in Europe.

 

The european meeting with the SOLE project partners continued on Sunday May  15th, with a guided visit to the unique Geopark in the Region of Valencia, located in the town of Xera and Sot de Xera. This visit supported one of the key goals of this  European project.

 

On  Monday  May 16th, all partners met in the CEEDCV to officially start the project meeting and discuss important facts and topics to improve our final outputs and results.

 

The social network SOLE created by this strategic partnership is innovative and unique at the moment. The partnership has been promoted internationally and there has been numerous dissemination events supported by scientific publications. We invite all of you to join the SOLE social and become a member.
