Students' reports – Spain

Day 1: 19th April 2021

Today was the first day of the virtual Erasmus. As soon as we entered the meeting, the teachers of each country made us a little presentation of the erasmus and themselves. Then, the headmaster of the greek school made us a little introduction that a greek girl translated to us. After that, we have been drawing some pictures about coronavirus, a typical animal of our country and the Europe map and showing them to the rest of the students.

After the drawing activity, they separated us in little meetings and rooms and we had to talk with the other students and introduce ourselves. The leader of each group after finishing the little meeting had to present its group to the other students. This activity has been the best for me because we had the opportunity to meet and talk to each other.

Then, we saw a presentation of the greek school and a video of it. Finally, greek students gave us a presentation of Chania, its history and museums, and we had a fun kahoot. Also we have seen two more videos of Chania.

This first day has been great and so interesting! /Inés Corral/

On our first day we did  some activities to break the ice. For example we made some drawings of the coronavirus, the map of Europe and put our country. Also in small groups we made a little presentation. Finally we discovered more about the culture of Greece and made a kahoot. It was a wonderful experience but at the beginning I was so excited and a little nervous. /Noemí Cuadrado./

Today in Erasmus at first I felt really little, because there were so many people. However, little by little I started being more comfortable with all the people, every person was very nice and able to solve any problem. Furthermore I discovered a precious city: Chania.

I hope to go there soon. In conclusion I’m very glad with everything. /Alejandro Navarro/

Today, the first day of the activity, we have started with a presentation by a teacher about the activity of these days. We have started doing an activity that we have to draw the coronavirus, an animal that will represent our country and finally Europe, highlighting our country, we had to go teaching and explaining why we had done it like this. Then they put us in small groups and we had to talk about ourselves so that later a leader from each group would tell everyone. Then they have put us a video of the high school in chania and two girls have been explaining things to us from there and then make a kahoot of them. And finally to close the activity they have put us a „tourist” video of the city. /Elena Gálvez/

Today we have started the erasmus activity organized by teachers and students from crete, greece, a very pleasant meeting, we started by saying a little what we feel about the activity, then we have made quick drawings in which the coronavirus has to be drawn, a cricri (a typical animal that represents each country) and draw the outline of Europe and place our country in it. Some drawings of the companions have been impressive. We were divided into groups of 6 to 7 people to chat a little with each other and choose a leader to collect the names of the companions and two characteristics of each one, in order to get to know each other a little more. We also saw a powerpoint and video about the crete institute presented by two girls from greece. The video was very elaborate. we had a break in between and then we saw another powerpoint and video about the beautiful city of chania, and we did a kahoot about the city that was very interesting. Today’s experience has been very pleasant, well organized, with entertaining activities, the most important thing is that we have learned a lot about Chania, a very beautiful city. I am excited for tomorrow to arrive to continue learning more about Greece, its culture and to get to know my colleagues better.  / Yun XI ZHANG/

Day 2: 20th April 2021

We started at 9:00 am, Spanish hour. The first activity was the museum gymkhana. They showed us part of the life of Eleftherios Venizelos, and then we had to answer a kahoot with that information. The second activity was a video about ancient Chania, in that activity we had to solve two puzzles related to the video.

Before the break they showed us two videos about Chania and Greece to seem like we were actually there. After the break we saw a PowerPoint presented by two students about plants and their properties. At the end we saw a video about the Olympic Games and then we played a Scratch game programmed by the students. Then we saw another video and we said goodbye for this day, we did not talk so much but this day was funny as well. /Álvaro Larrainaga/

Today we have done lots of things. Firstly, we have seen a few videos and we have also played kahoot. Secondly we have seen some Power Points and some videos where we have learned a few things about the country. We have also tried solving two puzzles in the less time possible.

Then we played a game designed by the students, it was awesome. Finally we have seen more videos. It was an excellent morning, I have learned a lot, all was perfectly prepared.

Thank you for everything. /Mario Canalejas/

Today was the second day of the video call. I’d say that it hasn’t been as interactive as the video call from the day before, but much richer talking about learning new facts and history about Chania, Crete and Greece in general.

Firstly, some mates had told us about a very important national figure called Nikitas Venizelos, he was basically a very important politician, leader of the Greek liberal party, after we learnt who he was we online-visited a museum in his honour which was his actual house (located in Chania).

Secondly we saw a timeline about the different Greek parts of history, starting up from the ancient Minoans, until nowadays, going through the ottoman rule and many other phases. We learnt different dancing and singing traditions, saw some videos and finally acquired some knowledge about the Olympic Games and the local plant species. In conclusion it has been a pretty cool experience, as all of this theoretical activities were always followed by an interactive one, such as kahoots or puzzles. /Marcos Lucía/

Reseña.

Today’s activity has been quieter so to speak, since yesterday we had more talks and we got to know each other more, but that does not take away from the excitement and fun of playing games and knowing the culture of other places that I never think I know up close.

I am very willing to participate, since it has helped me to get to know more about people from other countries and see how each person is and how each countryimparts their education and culture. /Maria del Carmen/

Day 3: 21st April 2021

This day has been the best of the three, much more dynamic and participatory than the others. Although it has sometimes taken a while for the rest of the partners to speak or cooperate, talking with them has been interesting.

You can really feel the big effort and enthusiasm the Greeks have put in the Erasmus project.

If I had to put any problem with it. I would try to reduce the exposure parts or make them more interactive. They got heavy at some points. /Daniel Serrano/

At 9 am, Lefteris, Olga and Elpida did a presentation about the stereotypes, which they talk about what it is, the appearance, the age… And then, we did a Kahoot about the same topic.

The next topic was about cyber bullying, presented by Stelios and Asimenia. They talked about what cyberbullying is, how to prevent it… they also show us a video made by them, representing how cyberbullying is. After that, we made groups to talk about the video and answer some questions, it was very cool! After the break, we did a test about how our experience had been here. Then, they put a lot of videos about the erasmus before covid in 2019, and finally, every country sang a song in their languages. I think this experience was unique and I would repeat it for sure! /Elisa Lopes/

The day was great!

First we did an activity about stereotypes where we saw a presentation and later we made a kahoot to see if the stereotypes exist among us. The next activity was about cyberbullying. We saw a video and next we were divided in groups and answered some questions.

Finally the different countries sang songs and put videos to remember the other meetings. /Andrés García/
