Our organization is an elementary school in a priority education network. The students are mostly from lower socio-economic and cultural environment. They are very modest and not very opened to the outside world.Through our eTwinning projects , we realized our weaknesses in the use of digital tools. Moreover, during a European contact seminar in our academy, Finnish teachers visited our school and realized our needs in ICT (Information and Communication Technologies for Education). Our department does not provide a training that fulfill our requirements, so we submit an application for training in Europe, especially in Finland known as the best European educational system.The objectives of the mobility project consist in reinforcing ICT and cultural skills to :- Eliminate teachers' fear of using ICT - Use digital tools in daily teaching and international projects- Make the school more international - Make a long-term project and acquire durable and reusable skills, beneficial for the entire teaching staff- Improve our cultural skills- Pooling and exchange teaching practices- Disseminate the acquired skills and experienceTwo participants (Christelle Lapra ZERATHE and Jennifer, both primary school teachers, graduated in English) were selected according to their interests in the European dimension and ICT, as they are currently involved in eTwinning projects and their skills in languages, training is in English.The mobility project includes peaks of activity and visible crucial steps on our Gantt chart (attached).They are briefly described below:* September 2015: Meeting of the teachers to think about a European dimension of our school* November 2015: First contact with the partner organization (Finnish School Ruukin Koulu) at a seminar of European contact, entitled "How to make your school more international?"* December 2015 - January 2016: Development of applications for the mobility project* February 2016: Application Filing for mobility project* May 2016 - European Day*July 2016 : Training in Cyprus about ICT ( Web 2.0 Tools for effective teaching and project work)* August 2016: meeting when teachers go back to school* September 2016: Survey (diagnostic evaluation), teachers will answer an online survey made by the participants.
