From November 26, 2017 to December 2, 2017, another activity was carried out as part of the Erasmus + Project in Doberlug-Kirchain,.
The main theme of the project focuses on the issue of entrepreneurship of young people today. The pupils presented this entrepreneurship during the Christmas market, which took place at the local Berg-Grundschule primary school. During the fair, students sold previously prepared Christmas decorations. The children had the opportunity to learn about the functioning of the German school from the inside out. As participants of everyday classes at school, together with their German friends, they took part in many interesting lessons. Their afternoons, spent in nice and warm homes of German families, were also full of interesting activities.
Students participated in many workshops prepared by the project coordinator in Germany, Ms. Utę Ksienrzyk. The children had the opportunity to test their culinary skills by taking part in confectionery workshops at the local Gabler confectionery. The castle in Doberlug showed children the realities of life of monks, and also taught patience, offering interesting calligraphy workshops. Thanks to the courtesy of the local garden center, we could make Christmas decorations ourselves.
An unforgettable experience was also the participation in the traditional Christmas market in Dresden and Leipzig. We also visited Wittenberg, the city of Martin Luther; we had the opportunity to stand at the most famous place in Wittenberg - the door of the castle church. It was there that Martin Luther, on October 31, 1517, was to suspend his 95 theses. In the same city, students had the opportunity to visit the science center "Adventure with Maths".
In summary, both students and teachers have gained the enormity of the benefits of visiting a partner school in Germany. The need to communicate in English made students aware of how much they can do, and their self-confidence in language skills has become established.

We are in a digital era where our students need to be taught using new technologies. In the past few years, technology has acquired an important role in education and it has changed the way of teaching while it has provided muliple resources that can help students have access to lot of input. That is why technology must be present in schools' everyday lessons as children are surrounded with digital tools all day. The way of teaching has changed a lot in the past few years: students learn from each others' experiences and the teacher becomes the guide to this new way of learning, leading them to the right path while they explore and research while using new methodologies. Several studies suggest that teachers should use technology as a very important part of their lessons. The use of digital tools has helped a lot in these new methods, with computers, Smart Boards and Ipads promoting group work and encouraging communication with students from all over the world. Subjects like Language Arts, Science or Maths can now be taught using Ipads, which is a very innovative way of teaching at the same time that children become more motivated to learn it with these digital tools.
