RESULTS AND IMPACT
The project action will certainly have a learning/teaching impact due to the development of skills both in teachers and students (communicative skills, territory knowledge, managerial skills, digital competences) of which they will benefit in the short and long term. S.I.K.U.L.A. will also have a social impact thanks to EtnaSchoolExpo which will be a model of results’ dissemination as well as a way of touristic promotion. In the long term further editions of EtnaSchoolExpo are likely to occur.
