Project trailers by Eric Vayssie and Eleni Harzavalou As for the conclusions reached at the end of this scholastic year we have to say that they are very positive as we have seen how the motivation in our pupils has increased greatly with this new form of learning but we do think there is still a long way to go. The title and the trailer are a project’s entry points for future partners. They can also be the starting point of a brainstorming for creators before defining the project. We have proceeded in this way for projects of the trilogy “Ulysse”. “Ulysse 2014, l’Odyssée du Twinspace” refers to Arthur C. Clarke’s novel “2001: A Space Odyssey”. The aim of the project was to create a collaborative writing about the adventures of Ulysse in space and time. Witnessing the changes that are taking place in our society as for these types of advances, it is vital for us, as teachers, to be prepared to face the challenge of adapting these new technologies and make them be part of our learning strategies efficiently and adequately so that our pupils could be prepared and could consider them vehicles that enable them to get the knowledge and to develop skills completely. Only so they will be ready to face the future request approaching. The link to the project trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j9ckNHvM8r8. For “Ulysse 2015, la Toile de Pénélope”, Penelope weaving her web gave us the idea to locate the adventures on the web, and educate students to a responsible use of the Internet.
