The Directorate of Primary Education of Trikala, having the role of the coordinator and within the framework of the approved European program ERASMUS+ KA220 "Playing and learning from the past", welcomed on Tuesday July 5 and Wednesday July 6 2022 in Trikala the partners of the program from three European countries (Italy - Folinio, Turkey - Istanbul and Romania - Iasi). The Developmental Centre of Thessaly (AKETH-Trikala) also participates in the specific program as a partner.
During the first day of the 1st transnational meeting, each organization presented their profile and field of action of their organization and discussed the workplan of the project and the responsibilities of each partner. On the second day, the “Guide of integrating Game-based learning” was presented and discussed and the chapters were split among the partners. The partners also visited the offices of the Primary Education of Trikala and were informed about the operation of the Directorate. They also visited the Regional Unit of Trikala where they were welcomed by the Deputy Regional Governor Mr. Christos Michalakis, and the Deputy Regional Governor of the Environment Mr. Konstantinos Mpardas and the Deputy Regional Governor of Culture Tourism and Lifelong learning Mr. John Boutinas.
The meeting ended with a tour of the city centre of Trikala, where the partners found out information about some of the historical monuments through an application created by AKETH. The Meteora complex was the final destination of the day and our last chance to help us not only cultivate bonds of friendship among the participants but also lay the foundations for the second mobility that will take place in Italy in October 2022.
