Information about the project

This Project , inspired by the famous Flat Stanley Character created by Jeff Brown, is a part of the KA101 Erasmus project of the French organization. It will encourage during two years the creation of links among partners.
The Octave Tordo pupils will create some paper ‘’Flat Mascots’’: Octave and his friends.
Then they will send them to the partner schools in order to discover the partner cultures and school systems.
The host schools integrate the flat mascots in the school life as guests and complete the collaborativ digital travel journal on the twinspace with pictures, videos or texts.
The flat mascots will be sent back after 1 week or return to France with teachers during a job shadowing activity.
Flat Octave and his flat friends will help hosting the Erasmus delegations visiting the French school too.
Teachers will be also invited to develop an Erasmus pedagogical bank to share resources.
