On Tuesday 13 and Wednesday 14 of September, the VOX POP project consortium met for the third time in presence for their 3rd Transnational Meeting in Aveiro/Portugal.
After an update about the current status of the project from the coordinator, STICHTING ROC MIDDEN NEDERLAND, the project partners worked closely to draw specific strategies for the next testing phase of Mix Up! Platform in each national school involved. Weaknesses and strength from the first session of testing this platform were addressed in order to frame specific steps for the next testing phase in the following month. The online tool has been designed to promote active citizenship, social integration and democratic capabilities through anonymous one-on-one discussions between students from different schools/backgrounds and with contrasting opinions.
The last project result was reviewed to design a better perception on its final shape. The handbook dedicated to teachers will support them to integrate the Mix Up platform into their civic education courses within any European vocational school and beyond.
A creative session during the face-to-face meeting included active discussions on defining pathways in the project dissemination process of the project.
