Video conference between Lithuanian and Polish students


On Thursday 10th January 2013 Lithuania and Poland held a video conference – online debates between the schools „Giving solutions to the youth’s problems“. Students shared their opinions about early school leaving, social exclusion, learning difficulties, social and economical problems and discrimination. Students were happy talking out that their schools are small and there aren’t very big problems related with social exclusion and discrimination. Both schools are situated in a rural region, in a village where morale among students tends to be higher than in big schools. Pupils are generally exposed to more opportunity to develop leadership skills in a greater diversity of situations. This promotes among students a sense of belonging, of pride in their community, their school, and themselves. Teachers are also more apt to know their students as individuals and to be familiar with the family backgrounds from which they come. As a result, students are likely to have better attitudes toward school and less likely to create discipline problems.
