Postcard from Klaipeda

Hello from Klaipeda, Lithuania! The TAMK delegation travelled here today via Riga, Latvia. Soon we will meet our partners representing educational institutions from Lithuania, Czech Republic, Italy, Denmark and Sweden.

Our meeting is the kick-off for the DETVET (Development of Educational Techniques in Vocational Education and Training) project. Educational institutions have to find new ways of addressing the needs of education in the networked globalized world. The main task of TAMK in this project is to research and demonstrate the possibilities social media has to give.

The project is funded by the EU Leonardo da Vinci Programme.

Members of TAMK delegation are Sisko Mällinen, TAMK Teacher's Education Centre, Jarno Tolonen, e-Edu learning technology centre and Cai Melakoski, TAMK School of Art and Media.

You will read more about DETVET soon!
