Projekt Square Eyed Students began in August 2017. The first activity was the activity; LOGO COMPETITION. Every coordinator announced the competition for the students at each partner school. Depending on the size of school, a different number of students participated in the competition. In Gislev, Denmark, every student from Kindergarten to 9’th grade made a logo and participated in the competition.
The purpose with the competition was to make the students aware of the project idea and to make them reflect about how to express that in symbols. We wanted to end up with a student-made logo, in a high quality, that represented our project and decorated all our official documents, t-shirts, sweat-shirts and accessorize used at student meetings, side by side with the Erasmus+ logo.
We stated that the graphical design, colours, title or the acronym SES should complement each other in a way, so there would be no doubt about, this would be a winner logo.
Every country held internal competitions and chose 2 winner logos, that moved on to an International competition with 10 logos from the 5 partner countries. Every country voted between these logos using a voting system given by the coordinator and after 6 weeks, we were able to announce the winner logo made by Iga Lachut from the 6’th grade in Denmark.
All the logos can be found here.
As we have already mentioned, we and our European partners (Estonian, Danish, Croatian, Turkish), who take part in the SES Erasmus+ project, would like to show you the possibilities of info-communication tools and applications, but at the same time we also would like to make it clear that personal relationships and spending our free time with the help of arts are very important. At the end of November we reached the second milestone of our project when we visited our Turkish partner in Trabzon, Cudibey Ortaokulu primary school. The children had the possibility to practice their English, and we, the teachers, also had the chance to learn from each other. This time we could exchange methodological experiences as well. The students, who entered our application, solved not only the tasks undertaken in the implementation of the project but also learned a lot about the Turkish culture and education system. We spent the mornings at the hospitality school, where we talked about the causes and dangers of digital addiction and about what could be done to make us less dependent on the world of computers and smart phones in our free time. In the afternoon we had the chance to get acquainted with the school's leisure time activities, Turkish culture, sport and gastronomy. At the end of the project, our students gained not only valuable experiences but also managed to get real European connections as well.
