  4. Location of Pilots

  5. Organisation of the Pilot • The pilot testing was integrated into regular classes (Biology, Geography, English) • Assignments were in line with school curricula • If there is non-English speaking teacher, he/she had assisting English speaking teacher Modification: Colleague teacher was involved in the project as an expert – reasons: • More comprehensive language • Adherence to school curriculas

  6. Preparations for Pilot • Workshop Nr. 1 Basic orientation on the platform • Expert´s role introduction, Online questionnaire • November 2006 • Collection of parental consent related to data collection • Workshop Nr. 2 First hand on experience • January 2007 • Bilateral meetings with the teachers - teachers given personal training on the system use • Finalisation of the Czech version of AtGentSchool platform • Workshop No3.Second hand on experience – Czech version • March 2007 • Teaching plans ready, evaluation system ready • Workshop No 4. Final • Instructions, problem solving scenario, communicatio, support schemes introduced • May 2007

  7. Pilot structure • 6 lessons/1 per week/45 mins • In total 34 full lessons • Workload equalled to 60mins, so students often used their break

  8. Pilot Progress I. May – June 2007 • Teachers give feedback via online diary and questionnaires • students evaluate system behavior via Likert scale responses Comments: • One school struggles with technical problems and steps out of the pilot after 3 lessons • Teachers use support very frequently • Teachers focus more on reporting technical problems • Stabilization of the feedback system • Changes in schedule

  9. Pilot Progress II. June2007 • The same feedback methods are used • Students are queried with more general questions Comments: • Stabilizationof students work • Teachers focus more on student progress reporting • Stabilization of the schedule • Students know the system – more intensive communication between expert and children

  10. Pilot Progress III. June 27th 2007 Final workshop after the pilot • Teachers are discussing the pilot, their opinions and problems with implementation. • Harri Siirtola (UTA) presented rough results from questionnaires • Inge Molenaar (Ontdeknet) lead the discussion with focus group • Results presented by Harri Siirtola and OBU

  11. Our Findings – Do's and Don'ts Organize schedule– and have at least 3 back-up plans Clarify priorities – research project seems never to be in line with everyday school life although should help it Be a best friend with school ICT coordinator – they are the most powerful person on the school and never reply to phone or email Clash of (school) cultures – it is veryimportant to know, that anything unusual/unexpected happens during the pilot, it is due to different school culture which is unpredicatble
