This January, Mozaik Education was delighted to host a group of teachers from Tallinna Reaalkool. Tallinna Reaalkool, or Tallinn Secondary School of Science as it is called in English, is one of the oldest schools in Tallinn. It was established in 1881 and is located very close to the old city of Tallinn. The principal of the School, Mrs. Ene Saar, is striving to introduce new teaching methods within the school and aims to provide her teachers with opportunities to have access to the best educational events, products and ideas from all over the world. We first met Mrs. Saar at the BETT show in 2016 and are very delighted that our relations with Tallinna Reaalkool came such a long way. We hope to see mozaBook used in many Estonian schools in the near future and are sure that Tallinna Reaalkool will be our partner in this journey.
Seven teachers from Tallinna Reaalkool and a Professor of Geography from the University of Tartu were trained in mozaBook wizardry for 5 full days and, we must admit, the results were impressive! All the trainees took a lot of interest in the material, worked hard and learned a lot during the training. It is always very interesting and fulfilling to work with practicing teachers: they ask the best questions, create the most interesting exercises, and give the best feedback. This time was no exception; among other things, teachers from Tallinna Reaalkool developed a complex Math presentation integrated with PDF workbooks and a colourful animated presentation for primary school pupils.
However, it was not all work for our guests, they also managed to fit in some fun activities. After long days at our training centre, they usually enthusiastically headed towards one of the city sights. They visited the Ferenc Móra Museum, Anna Bath, Szegedi Dom and the Synagogue, which is the 4th largest in the world. It was nice to see people take so much interest in Mozaik’s home town and happily pace its streets in the cold Winter weather.
