A second transnational meeting to end the first school-year!

25 teachers representing the 10 partner schools (+ 2 invited ones) and the MATh.en.JEANS association gathered on the 31st of May and 1st of June in the Colegiul Naţional Iași (Romania). This second transnational meeting ended the first school-year of Maths&Languages and was the opportunity to review all the activities of the project in 2017-2018.

In short, the physical meetings between twinned teams (LTTAs*) were very much appreciated by students, teachers and researcher as well as joint participations to congresses (in France or in Padova, Italy).  There is more work to be done to harmonise maths research and communication practices and to fix technical issues but everything is running well!

The atmosphere was good and the group looks forward to meeting again in Warsaw for the 3rd transnational meeting (27th-28th of September)!

PS: It should be noted that the M&L partners were pleased to welcome two new schools that are using the M&L approach: Lycée Bellevue (Alès, France) and Colegiul Naţional Mihail Eminescu (Satu Mare, Romania)!

The MatReLan project rewarded by the eTwinning Romanian agency

The eTwinning project Doing Math as Researchers Do It – MatReLan (2016-2017) was awarded the first prize in the mathematics and sciences category by the Romanian eTwinning national agency.

This is a deserved recognition for Ariana Vacaretu (Colegiul Naţional Emil Racoviţă, Cluj-Napoca) that we all are very happy to have by our side for the next three years.

The M&L project started!

The project officially started on the 1st of September but its cooperation activities began on the 5th and 6th of October via the first transnational meeting. It gathered during two days three representatives of the MATh.en.JEANS association and 22 teachers (mathematics and languages) from the 10 partner schools in Belgium, France, Italy, Poland and Romania.

They were involved in a very intense schedule in order to get to know each other, set up the calendar and the Maths&Languages approach for the next school-year . The opportunity has been given to the participants to get trained to the communication tools they will use among the twinnings and to talk about the administrative and financial follow-up, communication and evaluation of the project.

Plenary session    Group work

More than 20 hours of work for these 25 brave fellows that kept smiling all the way long and look forward to participate in the next transnational meeting (Iasi, Romania 31st of May and 1st of June 2017). In the meantime, the 5 international twinnings will be fully operational passing through at least 3 videoconference meetings and 1 physical one, very regular discussions on the shared research topics. All of this in a foreign language bien sûr !
