When in the fall we decided to participate in this process (both students and teacher) we were quite enthusiastic. We couldn’t imagine then that this project would turn out to be our “Ithaca”. That is a journey full of surprises, adventure and true learning. There were quite a few the moments we thought we were about to reach the end of our journey but a new path emerged for us to explore. The students were always eager to face new challenges, so in many cases they motivated their classmates to contribute to this program as well. Their energy and curiosity as well as their skills regarding the use of technology greatly surprised and motivated me to take initiative and be creativ, too. This program is quite distinctive of its pioneering and creative actions which offer one the opportunity to get acquainted with other cultures as well as follow new paths of knowledge. I would like to give my special thanks to:My colleague Adele Berezovskja of the school Azuolas in Prienai, Lithuania, to the students and the director of the 2d High School of Xylokastro during the year 2008-2009 Mr. Papanikolaou.
