As in all development projects, the pressure on end users to test outputs and provide feedback on the usability and value of products under development increases as the end of the project approaches. CALIBRATE is no exception and the schools in eight countries involved in the validation work are very busy trying to meet all demands and to ensure that user needs are built into the CALIBRATE tools and services.
The main activities of schools in the final six months of the project are as follows:
To use the CALIBRATE portal and LeMill to search for useful resources for lessons and provide feedback to developers in other WPs
To produce several lesson plans a month in which they describe what they found and how they used it.
To organise national validation days in which teachers new to CALIBRATE and less e-skilled explore the project's tools and services and provide feedback.
To carry out further work on the school of the future
To contribute ideas and lesson plans to the pedagogical section of the portal in order to help and inspire other teachers using the system.
The results of their work will be publicly available towards the end of the project.
