Teleprojects

Teleprojects are collaborative distance learning projects designed by teachers from various countries around a part of curriculum that is thought to be mutually relevant. Leading idea of a teleproject is the combination of local research of pupils around a certain topic and exchange of, and conversation on research results with partner-schools, using a foreign language and electronic mail.
Both domain specific teachers, foreign language teachers, and informatics teachers can help improve the activities of their pupils and make new educationally relevant activities possible when participating in teleprojects. The past years teleprojects have been conducted on a variety of subjects. Participants at ESP conferences always try to find partners and work on their future projects.
