The meeting in Norway is a very good example for how international cooperation between different countries and schools can look like and how this can be a important step in students and teachers personal development. That includes both topic related aspects like addiction and health as well as important cultural exchanges.
The program in Norway included a couple of activities which were related to the topic of the meeting - health. That in connection with an introduction to the norwegian culture gave us an extraordinary picture of what it means to cope with internet related health problems from different perspectives.
Even if the swedish and the norwegian school systems are quite similar the swedish team could find some interesting differences in how both countries work with specific educational questions. Especially the use of computers in daily school life was an interesting aspect to talk about. The opportunity to present our thoughts about ICT to norwegian teachers and to learn more about the norwegian way of dealing with these questions was a very good way for exchanging thoughts and ideas.
We would like to say thank you for the perfect organization in Norway and the opportunities to learn more about our neighbour in the west. Now we are looking forward to welcome you all in Sweden in April!
