Project partners of the Introducing AI project met for an interim project meeting, which took place on 10-11 March, 2022 in Tübingen, Germany. The meeting was hosted by partner IT4Kids.
Unfortunately, representatives from two partner organizations could not participate in person, but they were involved in meeting sessions remotely, using necessary technical equipment.
For the other partners, it was a possibility to meet in person – for many, for the first time in the project, which started in October 2020.
At this point of the project, the piloting activities are still taking place, but there was also a big amount of feedback from the teachers already for the good practices and improvement of material.
