Cesky Krumlov - the next project meeting

Project partners are preparing to meet once again for updates on the project.

There will be planning of the teacher training course and associated materials which will be used at the end of the project.
There are also ongoing efforts to translate the website, and other materials into the languages used by the project partners, which will increase the reach of the materials into a range of educational establishments.

Cesky Krumlov is in the Czech Republic, and parts of it are a World Heritage site...

Sadly, Alan Parkinson will not be able to attend the meeting due to his new teaching commitments, but plans are well advanced for a productive meeting.
