The Transnational Project Meetings (TPMs) are the key events which take place throughout the life of the project.
The TPMs include management and administration meetings as well as visits to local schools by teachers.

They take place a number of times a year in the countries of each partner. So far there has been three very productive TPMs. The very first meeting took place in Dublin from the 14th to 18th of October 2015. Most of the meetings took place in Dublin West Education Centre’s offices where the lead partner is based. There were visits to a number of schools and the partners and teachers witnessed Maynooth Boys School receiving the Digital Schools of Distinction Award. This is the Irish award that has inspired the project. After the ceremony, the visiting teachers were given a tour of the school and visited classrooms and spoke with the teaching staff. The school visits will be a key feature of all Transnational Meetings throughout the lifetime of the project. Here is a report on the Dublin meeting.
