INTERNATIONAL COORDINATION - FIRST NOTE
September 4 videoconference / Report
1 °) Organization of the first transnational meeting of the partnership
As the health context seems to allow movement across borders, we first check if the Latvian team is ready to implment R1. Each of the teams made sure of their freedom in the regard of the dates by consulting the Director beforehand.
The Rigas. 18 Vidduskola offers a launch seminar which would take place from October 12 to 16-17 (3 working days from 13 to 15 and 2 days of transport). This is a good opportunity for an effective media coverage of our cooperation, since it is the date of #Erasmusdays.
We believe the travelers will need a complete vaccination certificate or, failing that, will have to produce the result of a recent PCR test to enter the territory of Latvia.
A point is made on the objectives assigned to mobility R1 (especially as they may have changed compared to our applicant form. The initial “boot meeting” is indeed destined to become a “reset meeting”. See the initial agenda online at http://nbeplus.franceserv.eu/EVEprefig.html#derou
2 °) Reset of the partnership
The pandemic prevented any long-range work last year. With the exception of a remote workshop made in December, it was an “empty” year. The three teams therefore agree to jointly request an extension of duration so that the first effective school year of the partnership becomes the year 2021-2022 and that the project ends in 2023. We may request the possibility of completing the partnership in December 2023, rather than June to align the eVe+ programme with new projects starting in 2021. This point will be the subject of a final decision taken in Riga, where the schedule of activities will be decided (in line with the original plan but deferred, or reworked out of necessity). The meeting will also help to define any changes in the target audience and the contents, if the need arises (according to the initial plan: year 1 was mainly focused on a study of myths and literary tasks and / or arts, year 2 was more "scientific" but this system could be amended according to the age of the selected learners).
3 °) Possibility of a virtual meeting between students
As the Lycée Ravel is due to participate on November 26 in the EUROSCOLA session wich is organized by the Parliament of Strasbourg, we think it could be interesting (for us French partner) to include this activity in a promotion week dedicated to our european and international action - in particular in order to strengthen the commitment of our students who, in principle, are in the position of hosts in year 1 and not travelers). This local activity would be carried out the week of the 26th but the previous days with various foreign correspondents (eTwinners, etc.) and could especially concern the partners of the eVe + project if they are interested in. The prefiguration of the exchanges will possibly be a topic during the mobility R1.
4 °) Summary of decisions
- Date of event R1
- Adoption of R1 agenda
I - workshop to formalize our joint project reformatting request (if the issue is not resolved earlier, remotely)
II - multi-year planning workshop
III - preparation workshop for C1 and C2 mobilities planned this school year, or even C3 if it was advanced
IV - distance exchange preparation workshop
5 °) Coordination
Each school is requested to provide Sanita and Olga with the list of members of the delegation the team wishes to send to Riga as soon as possible, as well as the vaccination status of its members. The coordinator will quickly inquire with the French agency about the prospects for a derogatory extension of the duration of the project. He will complete the information of the host team regarding the R1 meeting issues.
