The first mobility of our new Comenius-partnership, funded by the European Union, was taken place in
Trondheim/Norway. One of our aims for the 1st mobility was that the participants shoult get to know each other better to make a foundation for future cooperation. Other important aims were:
– exchange experience on working with minicompanies
– make a foundation for an international partnership
– develop innovative business ideas and form joint ventures
– learn how to cooperate on an international level and cultural awareness in an international cooperation
– use social media and web solutions in an international cooperation
– interviews on cultural stereotypes
During the 1st mobility we had speakers who addressed these issues. Kristine Raeder from JA-YE Mid-Norway talked about their programmes that were useful for us. Sven-Erik Knoff from Visit Trondheim gave a presentation on how to use web solutions and social media. Andrea Hosen from Tiller Upper Secondary School talked about the importance of cultural awareness when working together. Tim Rudi Veiteberg from Utvikling.org had a session on Management and Cooperation for the students.
The schools gave a presentation of themselves to their partners. All students presented themselves for each other with their respective minicompanies and business ideas. There were also various student activities. There were creative exercises in mixed groups. There were also speed dating activities so that the minicompanies could get a bigger network and to find a common denominator for a future
partnership. Some of the students made interviews with teachers and students on Tiller videregaende skole. This project has been funded with support from the European Commission.
