    ROBOTENGLISH: applied IT mixed with English

    ROBOTENGLISH is a bilateral partnership proposal between two secondary schools of two EU countries: Lithuania and Italy. Both schools have a special interest in scientific subjects, IT, and English. The project is of the duration of two academic years and involves directly 10 Lithuanian and 12 Italian students and 4 teachers in total. It involves the use of English, a basic learning of the partner language and the integration of scientific subjects such as (IT, electronics, maths). The general aim is to improve the EU dimension of the education field promoting combined scientific activities in cooperation between the schools on the topic chosen: applied IT to robotics trough the use of English. Lithuanian school will be responsible for the theoretical approach of the project and Italian school will be in charge of the practical approach. Different phases are expected: a.introductive: project starting, school presentations, data collection; b.implementation: reciprocal echanges, local events/activities, evaluations meetings; c. final: seminar, publications. Two related final products: realization of a technical manual and a robot. The construction and programming of a little self-propelled robot will be done by mainly Italian students (together with the Lithuanians during the exchange days); the publication of the manual will be done in collaboration by the two groups and edited by Lithuanian students. During the project students will work collaboratively trough the project website and skype sharing the activity materials (student papers, instructions, documents, photos, software). The dissemination of results and outcomes will be done at schools level involving the local youth and school teachers together with the wider local community(families, friends).
