During this kick-off meeting we joined all of the SESAME project partners and traced SESAME
This was the second meeting of the project SESAME. Although COVID-19 made it impossible for us to meet in person at Caen, France, we still manage to meet through a video meeting. Innovation does not measure distances.
This Transnational Project Meeting should be happening in Padua, but instead our European team had to meet once again through web conference due persistent pandemic risk all over the globe. During this meeting we managed to share and review project progress and defined our following goals and deadlines.
Virtual TPM5 was lead by Wuppertal University, project coordinator and it was to talk about interim evaluation of the pilot with regard to the acquisition of schools, current status in the countries and current status of the app. All partners are working for release the SESAME APP soon.
As we could not postpone any longer or LTTA (Learning, Teaching, Training Activity) we had to reshape it into an online format via web conference. During 4 days we would join zoom call and train the SESAME trainers, who will, later on, be leading the SESAME implementation in each of their schools. Unfortunately, we could not do this LTTA in person as it would certainly be more engaging, even so, we are quite pleased with the outcomes of this training activity and the high interest of our trainers.
Sesame Project partners and teachers had training about the Sesame App which is almost finished. Daniel Silva, trainer at ETIC_Algarve and the programmer who developed the App, showed partner schools in Italy, France and Germany, among others, how to use the application, all of its features, the different types of users and how to create users, teachers and schools. This App, which will be able to identify young people with behaviors of anxiety, stress and depression and prevent those behaviours, it´s now in an implementation and testing phase at partner schools.
The TPM6 was held in L'École de la Deuxième Chance in Caen, France. We have developed and presented the app prototype that can be shown as a trial version. Thanks to this solution, those who are interested in implementing SESAME can see how the app works like even before contacting us.
As this was our last meeting, we have also reviewed and summed up our work and analyzed the statistics on how the SESAME works like implemented.
We had a great closure of months of hard work with huge hopes for the future development of our project!
