It is our great pleasure to introduce Zvonimir Bulaja, an official friend of the AMORES project and a judge in our international e-artefacts competition!
The fourth international AMORES partner meeting is taking place in Köping, Sweden on 14 and 15 September. Thirteen team members from nine partner organisations have gathered to share updates on project progress, as well as discuss remaining activities before the project ends.
Earlier this year we shared an article by Dr Geoff Walton, introducing the AMORES online learning materials on interactive ICT tools in teaching national and European literature. These are available as open educational resources (OER).
First of all, let us say how delighted the AMORES project team is that this competition has been such a resounding success! The aim of AMORES international competition has been to encourage students all over Europe to discover works of literature and use contemporary technologies to help them understand and interpret what they have read, and we are very pleased that so many of you took the time to make and enter an e-artefact!
As the deadline for entering e-artefacts in the competition was extended by two weeks (from June 15 to June 30), we regret to say that we have also had to postpone the announcement of the winning entries a little.
Recipients of the prize for the best e-artefact, as well as prizes for second and third place, will receive notification of their prizes by email no later than 10 August 2015. The list of prize recipients will also be available on the competition website.
We apologize if this causes you any inconvenience and hope you are enjoying your summer!
The AMORES e-artefacts competition closed last week and our team had the fun but demanding task of going through the many entries we received in order to determine whether they comply with the competitor guidelines.
This part of the job is done and now it is over to the judges!
We are very pleased and proud to present the judges who have generously volunteered their time and expertise to help make this competition a true success! Here they are in alphabetical order.
The third AMORES project partner meeting took place in Lodz, Poland, from 15-16 June. Eleven team members from nine partner organisations took the opportunity to bring each other up to date on project progress and agree on the best way to proceed. The meeting was hosted by the Polish partner - 36,6 Compentence Centre.
We’ve had several requests to extend the deadline for the submission of e-artefacts, so we have decided to extend it until the end of June.
The new closing date for the competition is June 30 at 23:59.
We take this opportunity to remind you of the following details.
All interested students are invited to enter their e-artefacts in this international competition, organised as part of AMORES project. The e-artefacts should be based on a work of national children’s literature. The author of the best e-artefact will win a trip to the final event of the competition, to be held at the Valamar Lacroma Hotel in Dubrovnik, Croatia, on 20 November 2015.
The first week of May saw visitors from Sweden spend 2 action-packed days in Croatia. Everyone at Horvati Primary School in Zagreb was very excited to welcome ten students, three teachers and the headmaster of Karlbergsskolan. This is the second of the bilateral visits between schools planned for the pilot implementation stage of the project – Danish students visited their counterparts in Łódź, Poland, in the last week of April.
The editorial team is coordinated by CYBERALL-ACCESS and we would love to post any info relevant to AMORES work. Just contact us . In any case this section serves as blog that we will be posting further developments and stakeholders/visitors are welcome to comment.
