Dissemination of project at the 18th International Science Symposium

From 10th to11th June 2016 the 18th International Science Symposium for »Technical creativity in school's curricula with the form of project learning from the kindergarten to the technical faculty« took place in Portorož. As domestic and international experts participated in the symposium it was an excellent opportunity to present the project, especially as the participants covered all spheres of education – from kindergarten to university, which means that secondary schools and higher schools are included as well. I presented the idea of the project, all the research done, the piloting of the FrontDesk programs and the mobile applications for smart phones with the industry, the piloting of the Moodle e-learning platform at schools and universities and I also showed them the products created within the project. The participants were very impressed with all the products, especially teachers liked the e-learning platform and found it very useful. During the coffee breaks, I had the opportunity to explain the products in more details. They also liked the idea of all the products being available free to anybody who would like to use them. There are proceedings of the conference with all participants and their contributions published.
