Project "Creativity in teaching and learning using ICT: Digital School in Piekoszów" concerned participation of 4 teachers of Primary School in Piekoszów in the training organized by the training center “Cervantes”, in Alcalá de Henares, Madrid, Spain.

It improved the quality of work in the school. The teachers got familiar with the use of modern technologies in their daily work in the classroom in a practical and realistic way. The course was designed for teachers of any subjects. The aim of the course was to enable participants to make efficient use of ICT tools of Web 2.0, social networks, blogs, websites for educational purposes and increase the range of interdisciplinary teaching and learning through implementing the idea of "Digital School".

Since returning from the course, teachers continue work in a school project team and in cooperation with the school headmaster, they are responsible for the implementation of the acquired knowledge and skills in the school environment. Activities related to the project (school blog and multi-partner project) were implemented in the current School Working Plan.
