Project details

More and more tools and interesting Web 2.0 programs are being created and we use them in our projects. Everyone has his favourite ones, so let’s gather them in one place so more teachers and students could use them. A huge, safe and multilanguage website will arise. It will make communication, cooperation, creating and uploading way easier. We will use it in our projects, popularize it in our countries. Second of the establishments of the project is to show and popularize interesting places in Europe. We will exchange information about interesting places that we saw during holidays. That’s for the beginning. Later we will show places to see during weekends and places to child-friendly in Europe. The title of the project : "Travel Broadens the mind" concludes its aims.
