“ProjectX” is a methodological guide for a student to carry out a concrete activity, one to one with the teacher, in which theory and practice are both perfectly integrated, and which is related to the real workplace.
During this meeting all the main aspects of the project development were addressed:

- Partners gave their input to complete the Dissemination Plan and the Quality Management Plan.

Third Transnational Meeting – Lisbon

This meeting started with the presentation of two importan results of the project: The Reasearch and Analysis Report(WP2) and the Guidelines to Make a ProjectX (WP3).
The main part of the meeting was devoted to review Level 2 of the 21 ProjectX developed by partners. We had 3 sessions of two hours in which partners were divided in 3 groups, and each group reviewed a set of ProjectX. At the end of the session, partners produced a report with the necessary improvements of each ProjectX: technical, linguistical, etc.
Finally, there was a Management workshop. Xabec presented a Budget Progress Report by partner, and the Quality Report in which each accomplished result was presented along its indicators.
Taking advantage of the third transnational meeting, our host Val do Rio Vocational Training Centre organised a training course for teachers. The main topic was the new generation networks and new concept of experience with microcontrollers that allow students to experiment & perform hands-on activities based on multiple “physiological sensors”. In this video you can see what students can do with this kind of technology.
