Following activities were carried out:

  • Various ice breaking social activities for students were carried out by teacher Sirje Rebane, Karmo Lugima and Lea Metsis.  The intend was to make the pupils more comfortable and to get to know each other better.
  • The teachers visited Rakvere Town Municipality Government and met  the Mayor Mr Marko Torm and Rakvere Rural Municipality Government, meeting with the head of the municipality government Mr Maido Nõlvak.
  • The pupils took part of a practical workshop where WordPress content management system platform and WooCommerce WordPress eCommerce plugin was introduced to them. Then the pupils proceeded to follow the ICT teacher’s instructions first on how to log on to WordPress, then on how to install the WooCommerce plug-in that would add eCommerce functionality to our simple WordPress website. The site was modified by teacher’s instructions and the required forms were filled and actions done were so it would appear as a regular electronic shop. A sample product was then added. The children got to browse their new e-shop and test out the functionality after they were done following the teacher’s instructions.
    • In the course of creating the e-shops, the students were split in pairs. Each pair of students got to make their own e-shop. Six Estonian host students were left out of the process and instead, they were given the supervisor role to make sure the foreign students get help if needed. This method proved to be a success, as the 6 Estonian students chosen from 12 were good with tech and English. They were also familiar with the ICT teacher’s methods, accent, the computers etc. 12+1 e-shops were made by the end of the 3 hour lesson.
