220.127.116.11.1. Assessment of the extent of use of the mechanisms for linguistic and intercultural preparation
Project coordinators gather their observations and collect feedback from learners on language/intercultural preparation, make the necessary improvements and include them in further project applications. For example, several schools have changed the linguistic preparation mechanism as students do not want to learn the language independently using Online Linguistic Support before the mobility, or it is difficult to organize specific less prevalent language courses at school before mobility. In the next projects, schools provide funding for language courses in the host country, when students' motivation to acquire language is higher. Students have appreciated this approach.
18.104.22.168.2. Assessment of the extent of use of the stay monitoring mechanisms
Project coordinators gather their observations and collect proposals and feedback from learners on their satisfaction with assistance / mentoring / guidance and ensuring their integration in the host country, make the necessary improvements and include them in next projects. For example, as all mobile students have Facebook accounts and smartphones, a project coordinator has started to use Facebook group or mobile application WhatsApp for convenient communication with mobile students during the stay abroad. Taking into account today's youth propensity to share their impressions on social networks, project coordinator encourages mobile students to regularly post their experiences in e.g., Facebook. After such activities in social media the project coordinator has observed a growing interest in school and vocational education, as mobility experience abroad raises the prestige of vocational education.
22.214.171.124.3. Assessment of the extent of use of the feedback and reintegration mechanisms
Project coordinators gather their observations acquired by repeated discussions with participants before mobility, regular communication during mobility and interviews and discussions after mobility as well as analyse participants' answers in the mobility project final evaluation online survey, reports and presentations about mobility, make the necessary improvements and include them in next projects.
126.96.36.199.4. Assessment of the extent of use of the mechanisms for affordable and convenient housing, catering and transport
Project coordinators collect feedback from learners on facilities for housing, catering and transport all along the stay process, as well as communicate with coordinator from host country and receive information from accompanying person – all this help project coordinators make the necessary improvements and include them in further project applications.
