A peek into the virtual mobility atmosphere

From 15th to 19th March the students of 25 OU “Dr. Petar Beron” from Sofia in Bulgaria, Școala Gimnazială Romanu from Romania and Osnovna škola Odra from Zagreb participated in the first mobility in our project. It was held virtually due to the current circumstances. Virtual meetings were held via Zoom and students were accompanied by their teachers. They shared presentations on political systems and personalities, education systems, mass media and politics in general, collaborated to create a dictionary of democracy, acted as journalists at a professional gathering of teachers, but also had fun in group activities. Although students would certainly prefer to travel to Romania, this kind of mobility also managed to interest and cheer up our students while awaiting some better times.
