The eTwinning teacher Agnieszka Czepiżak, winner of the 6-12 age category said that the game “brought fresh and new methods, unconventional teaching to the classroom, raised awareness of other cultures, of different people, their problems, and of human rights convention – values such as tolerance, equality and democracy. The online game involved logical, mathematical, analytical skills but also imagination, artistic skills and cooperation on pupils' side and helped develop pupils' curiosity about science, the knowledge of other language codes, countries, places, cultures - bringing a cross-cultural atmosphere to the classroom. The pupils were very excited about the puzzles, which they also shared with their families, and every week they were asking me for a new challenge. It was great fun and excitement!”, Agnieszka added.
