Summary of the 1st Teacher ODE
The first teacher Online Discussion Event took place in the period 11-13 July 2012 and was moderated by Carlos Cunha. During the three day event teachers were invited to discuss how they are informed about European and national science education project results.
Bellow you find a summary of the discussed themes each day of the event.
Most teachers said they prefer Twitter, since "You can receive information as an audience (if you want) or, on the other hand you can just send information" and because " you can choose the kind of information you want to receive. It is very easy and comfortable to use." The participants were also invited to discuss traditional media channels, but the participation was less active.
