EVALUATION:
University of Siena helped us to evaluate our first intellectual outputs. We are waiting for questionnaires to evaluate the quality of of our actions.

We regularly checked the feed back from the students, end users of the project.
We collected most positive feed back from families and students during class meetings held on line at the end of the school year.

In all the classes taking part into the project teachers report an actual improvement in peer relationships.

University of Siena evaluated positively the quality of our first 5 videos.

Thanks to two encouraging meetings with Prof. Alessandra Viviani we found the right topics for the remaining 5 videos and we stared filming in the months of November and December (09/11, 16/11 e o7/12, 14/12)

We took part in the meeting 'Se dico minori' where teachers, head teachers, social operators and other qualified people got to know about the Key Code.

Thanks to frequent meetings among teachers we succeed in spreading the KeyCode results throughout our institute and to the partner school invited to our meetings.
