Final Evaluation Meeting for our Emotional Management Strategic Partnership

From 18 to 20 July 2022 we hosted the “Emotional Management: tool to fight social media dependency” Strategic Partnership’s final transnational meeting of the project mentioned. This project involves several school professionals, town halls and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) from three countries (Spain, Portugal and Romania) and aims to improve the capacity of the entire school community to manage emotional issues and minimize the harmful effects of social network dependency. The project managers and connected staff of all nine partners attended the project.

During the meeting, we took account of the implementation of the activities and drafted the final report due to be submitted in October 2022. We also planned how and when to do the multiplier events of the project in the 3 countries. The two intellectual outputs of the project were also reviewed, both the research done in the 3 high-schools and the guide for teachers and educational professionals that includes activities that help adolescents manifest a better management of their emotions. Both these outputs are now being finalized to be published and disseminated across Europe.

It was three days of intensive work, but during the breaks, the teacher still had the opportunity to walk in the town of Cristuru Secuiesc and the nearby town Sighisoara, where Vlad Dracul was born. According to a Portuguese coordinator, “It was another enriching experience during which teamwork reigned and the development of international ties intensified.”

Stay tuned for updates about the 2 outputs and the multiplier events.
