From 7th to 13th December 2014 Primrose held its traditional 6-day Euro-Skills course at Cambridge University, in Cambridge, England. The course participants were a group of 12 Slovenian teachers from hotel and tourism schools. During the course a special dissemination seminar was organized to introduce course participants to the project.
The seminar consisted of a presentation of the project accompanied by a demonstration how the software programs work, and then a series of images projected onto the screen of the 7 draft digital maps being developed on the digital-map web-site. This was followed by an account and demonstration of how the digital maps will be used.Each participant had been given a copy of the four “Guest Questions” computer programs: Village, Seaside, Ski Resort and Restaurant. These they installed on their laptops and were shown how they will be used by teachers, students and hotel trainees. They were able to watch a demonstration on the big screen of the programs in action in the seven languages already completed: English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Russian and Greek. They were then able to practise using the 4 programs on their laptops. Reactions were both positive and enthusiastic. They all want to be kept in touch as the project develops and to have copies of the new materials as they are completed. They want to try out the materials with their students.
