Discussion: All partners have discussion on definition of activities and timelines for them.

Conclusion:  Every school has all these 15 activities to implement. But every school has to prepare the rules, and the theoretical frame for 2 activities. Each partner is responsible for designing the methodology to be followed by all the other schools, there must be an evaluation form not only for students but also for teachers. Carmen emphasized that every activity needs label which tells us what it is about and a Blog can be very useful in order to organize and gather all the events, activities, products, actions taken regarding the Project from all the partners. Rene explains some ideas about how garden activity can be carried out. For example; it is stated that every partner can dig small flowers and put some pots for their garden activity.

The deadline to be delivered the guides for the activities is the 20st of December. As soon as the partner schools have the activities guide they can implement them according their conditions, but with the obligation that they will have them ready until the corresponsive mobility.    

Time allotted | 20’ | Agenda topic [Topic] | Target Group of Students

Discussion:  Target Group: Students that are in risk of early school leaving, students with low marks and high sum of absences and students that bullied or have been bullied during their school life. Lela has offered that it can be those students who are very successful in academic terms but have little confidence and students who are shy. Birute offers that every school will decide how many students will take place in an activity. Logo contest will be designed by Lithuania.

We also discuss the possibility to add more students to the mobilities if the host schools find families disposal for hosting. Birute argued that more mobilities than the previewed  is not anymore an added value, because in the new Erasmus+ projects what it is matters is sharing good practices.

Conclusion: Each partner has to deliver his/her final logo product which are done by students until deadline 10th December 2016 to Lithuanian Partner.  It is also stated by Birute that in learning/teaching activities students has to come across something new in order to make the mobility more impressed and valuable.  The Europass can be used as a complementary tool to certify the learning activities

Time allotted | 20’ | Agenda topic [Topic] Criteria of Eligibility

Discussion:  Students who will take place during these activities and motilities, can work as mentors.

Conclusion:  During the meeting it is said that students who are able to take responsibility more, very capable in working internationally and also like travelling can be best candidates for the mobilities because after mobilities it is believed that these pupils will be able to help their peers much more than any other students thanks to their special qualifications.  So, it is also agreed that they can be perfect fit for the mobilities and for working as mentors.
