DISSEMINATION AND PILOTING OF FRONT DESK PROGRAM AND SMARTPHONE APP AT NINO BERGESE HOTEL AND CATERING SCHOOL, GENOA, 26th May
A further occasion for dissemination has just been carried out. The event was conceived as a multipurpose initiative. Nino Bergese took the chance for disseminating the project's contents in the school, for piloting David Sephton's smartphone app and, last but not least,for giving Mr Sephton's the opportunity of disseminating his own work in Italy.
We formally invited the school's English teachers, a group of students and some hospitality workers. The event opened with the headmaster's greetings and public acknowledgement of the work we have been doing. Secondly, Manuela explained the project's aims and contents both orally and with the support of a PowerPoint presentation. Mr Sephton also projected his PowerPoint presentations on how to use the FrontDesk program and the smartphone app. Lunch was served in the school's restaurant, and on this occasion, the participants had the opportunity of exchanging ideas on the project and an informal debate took place. After lunch, everyone moved to the main computer room to test the FrontDesk
program. We asked people to sign the participants' list. Next, everybody was assigned a computer system unit where to “play” with the FrontDesk program and find out more about it. The participants were very enthusiastic and spent quite a long time “playing” with the program and moving from one language to another. We handed out questionnaires to evaluate the products presented whose results clearly showed the participants interest and positive feedback both on Mr Sephton's software and on the dissemination activity as a whole.
