Training Activities in Greece, Spain, Turkey, Ireland, and Poland consisted of short-term joint staff training events as well as large scale international training courses (Multiplier Events) in Spain and Greece. Selected experts, educational methods specialists, and teachers, all members of the project consortium, were trained on:

  • the use of the MOVING STARS Training Material as well as the educational scenarios and games developed,
  • the use of the MOVING STARS interactive sensory-motion video game,
  • networking and connecting with other schools and stakeholders that were invited to present their best practices,
  • the use of the eTwinning Platform capabilities and on how to adapt, use and disseminate the MOVING STARS Toolkit,
  • disseminating the MOVING STARS approach through its web site and social media.



The 3 first Training Activities took place in Athens (Greece), Terrassa (Spain), and Kildare (Ireland). The main objective was to pre-test and evaluate the games developed through Intellectual Outputs 2 and 3. The results of the pretesting evaluation were used to finalize the Moving STARS Toolkit (Teacher’s Manual and supporting material).
