An international meeting within the ERASMUS + program took place in the Polish city of Grójec on November 15 – 19, 2021. The host school was Liceum Ogolnoksztalcace im. Peter Skargi. Within the Digital Competences and eSecurity project, six countries – Poland, Greece, Italy, Slovakia, Iceland and Sweden – worked on Internet security, the use of smartphones and Internet addiction. Students and teachers tried to find new answers and approaches to the topics. The meeting was enriched by professional seminars held at the Technical University in Warsaw, lectures and workshops at the school, which were led by experts and teachers of the school. The participants also had the opportunity to see the city of Warsaw, The Warsaw Rising Museum and the Copernicus Science Center. The meeting was an amazing demonstration of Polish hospitality and the expertise of the meeting was on a high level. We are already looking forward to further cooperation and meetings within the Digital Competences and eSafety project.
Slovak students did say about this meeting:
Klára a Lenka: We think that Erasmus+ has been one of the best experiences that we as students could be a part of. It was a great way to communicate in English and of course, we had to overcome obstacles. Step out of our comfort zones by presenting different parts of our project or in staying with a host family that grew closer to our hearts in that week. Both of us fully recommend the program Erasmus+ because we think everybody should have the opportunity to gain their own unforgettable memories.
Namju: I think I chose the Erasmus+ project really well. I met new friends, knew culture. My level of communication in English has improved. And most importantly, I learned new information about how to use the Internet safely and other important knowledge. There was very good cooperation in international groups of students.
Jakub: I think Erasmus+ is a great program. I got to know the local culture, food and a lot of friendly people. Cooperation among countries was on a high level. From the beginning, it was a little harder to get used to the new environment. But it was worth it. I have increased my knowledge of Internet security. I also brushed up my English and advanced to a higher level.
