Partnership with Scotland

After the eTwinning Bilateral Contact Seminar in İzmir/Turkey; Mrs. Julia Preston from Doon Academy and Bugra Inal from Halit Ziya Usaklıgil Secondary School have come together and discussed on a topic "Kites". The first draft of the brand new project was prepared during the seminar and after turning back to school this subject introduced to pupils and administrators as well. 

The name of the project then, decided to be "Great Heights and eKites" which would give the opportunity for our pupils to meet new cultures and improve their infornatics skill via the most enjoyable topic kites. They are also supposed to design their own kites and this would make the bridge between the school and home. It really deserves admiring because a great partnership, lets say friendship, has started with Scotland and Turkey.

Since the 8th of October, 2013. this is the date when our project started officially the process has been continued very well as we planned it. the pupils has sent each other celebration cards and presents. Skype meetings impressed them and they became more eager etwinners. Everyweek, we try to differentiate the tasks for not to make etwinners feel monotonous and unmotivated at school.
