GreenWheels Newsletter 02

Since September on, all project partners have fully been involved in the testing and piloting process. Each project partner is to use a feedback form where they include their feedback on the testing process of the worksheets, their recommendations and suggestions. There are three types of a feedback form – one for schools, one for regulatory bodies and one for sector skills, to reflect the specific feedback that each project partner type can provide.  
In October and November we were busy preparing the second Project Report, together with the Evaluation, Quality and Dissemination reports. Also, the second independent expert external assessment is being prepared.


During 22-23.11 2017, a first technical training introducing the basics of Electromobility to the teachers of automotive schools Holice and Jana Jonasa, has been organized by the State Institute for Vocational Education and Training Slovakia and by Porsche Slovakia within the Green Wheels Project. The training, entitled e-GOLF Introduction of vehicle and test drives, fully corresponded with the first round of released Worksheets in a Green Wheels Project. 


All the theory has been demonstrated in practice at the sample e-GOLF vehicle, which has been much appreciated by the teachers, who have very rare opportunities meeting physically, in their work environment, real electric or hybrid vehicle. 


The 3rd project meeting took place in Budapest on 10-12th January. The meeting was kindly hosted by the project partners school Fay Andras. The meeting was focused mainly on the development of e-learning materials and discussing the testing and piloting of the materials among the project partners. The meeting was followed by a visit to the Department of Automotive Technolgies of the Budapest University Tehnology and Economics  where the project partners were shown the newest development within the automotive department and were shown the project of testing polygon for autonomous vehicles and smart city solution.
The last day of the meeting a national dissemination conference of the Green Wheels project took part at the Hungarian Chamber of Commerce. The conference was attended by representatives of the Hungarian Chamber of Commerce, Audi Academy, Ministry of Economics, the UK Embassy and others. The project was very positively evaluated among the attendees and we are grateful for this excellent dissemination opportunity.



On 17-18. 1. 2018 a 2nd technical training to the teachers of secondary vocational automotive schools from Slovakia and Czech Republic. Training has been organized by State Institute for Vocational Education and Training Slovakia, Automotive Industry Association of the Slovak Republic and by Hyundai Slovakia in Trnava within the Green Wheels Project. 



GreenWheels had 3rd Teachers Training also in Hungary.
During January (29-30), we made 3rd teacher training in Fáy András School. On training, we focused learning methodologies. Training has been organized by Fáy School, and many teachers took part, not just from the partner school, but from many schools in the country.



We have focused intensively on improving the design of the GW project website and LMS. The website is available in 4 project languages, where on landing page is a clearly visible section “Project Results” contains project tangible outputs located in LMS (at the moment in English version only)

At the end, we have a short quiz for our followers.

During a recent training course attended by the Green Wheels (GW) technical author, Tom Denton, we took lots of pictures and films that are now being used to create the amazing videos and learning materials that will be available to everybody when the GW project is complete. The three components shown in these pictures are from a Toyota Prius but, in slightly different forms, they are used on all electric and hybrid vehicles. Can you name them? Can you say what dangers they pose if not handled correctly? What do they actually do?



Don’t worry if don’t know the answers, stay tuned for next newsletter and for the GreenWheels project.
