Project – Strengthening Small Schools in Sweden

Wednesday, 20 February was a unique day. It was almost certainly the first time in Sweden as so many units of smartphones, ipads, interactive smart board and large-screenTV’s have been connected with webcams from several different locations in Sweden.
Key persons were 30 teachers from the schools involved in the Swedish project “Small schools in development”.
The project aim is to support the small schools’ efforts to develop new teaching methods related to information technology, and to develop and strengthen the role of schools in the development of the region.
The project’s main goal is a number of well-functioning and efficient pilot schools in remote and rural areas, where each one through a strong network serves as a good example for other schools. Show what is in the way of small schools’ success. Make new pedagogical methods visible and sought after. School and district should strengthen their ties. Affected areas will be strengthened by the school’s participation.

Seminar as a distributed event – one million swedish kronor saved

—I have calculated that we saved a million Swedish kronor, says Sven Hyllienmark, project manager at the National Psychiatric centers in Västerbotten. He got hold of a star lecturer at Skellefteå, wanted the lecture to reach more people including those working in Lapland. But to let every one travel to the lecture would be too expensive.
The solution was to let Compodium arrange a distributed event of the entire lecture. This allowed an additional 50 employees to take part of the star lecturer.
—This is well worth repeating, says Sven Hyllienmark who is very pleased with the results. Fifty instead of five makes a big difference. When he brings out the calculator and checks he thinks it would have costed about a million swedish kronor to take all to Skelleftea – travel cost, travel time and labor time included. Now it was much cheaper.
In a theater in Lycksele an audience could see and interact with the lecturer. The seminar was also received via broadband to two locations in Umeå.
