The exchange, the experiences and the intensity of being in a foreign country for 24 hours for a week with a different family, cannot be substituted.For this reason: We applied for an extension of our project.

Digital teaching in corona times: Challenges and Chances
Digital teaching in corona timesChallenges-Some schools were closed, a new situation, for which some were not prepared.-There was a lack of resources and digital skills in some schools.(some) Students only had their mobile phones, therefore they couldn’t work or had no connection.-Many students left the Erasmus Club.…but also, Chances- we were obliged to apply digital solutions.-we have gained digital experience working in this project, which was very useful because we could apply it on the online distance teaching.-teachers have developed new digital competences which are important for the teaching process.-we appreciate now more than ever before how important the communication with others is.
