eTools Lithuania - a set of different tools

The new part of our series introduces the tools that have been used by the Lithuanian partner.

For a lively design of the workshop the Center for Health Education and Diseases Prevention in Vilnius used the Socrative App. They used it to involve the students in the process.

Socrative App

Engage, assess and personalize your class with Socrative! Educators can initiate formative assessments through quizzes, quick question polls, exit tickets and space races all with their Socrative Teacher app. Socrative will instantly grade, aggregate and provide visuals of results to help you identify opportunities for further instruction.

Students share their understanding by answering the questions asked bay their teachers. Once students launch the Socrative Student App, they'll be prompted to join the teacher's room via the teacher's unique code. No student accounts are necessary!

To teach a healthy style of living they used existing tools as well. The Mano mityba app for the nutritional part and the Google Fit App for the movement part.

Mano mityba (My nutrition) App

This application helps to regulate your diet, learn about the nutritional value of products while playing games, and allows you to calculate the nutritional values of your prescription. The Nutrition Diary helps regulate your diet by calculating daily carbohydrate, fat, protein, calories, salt and sugar.

Educational game "Libra" will help you to get acquainted with healthy eating habits and nutritional values of products. Users can compete with each other by collecting as many points as possible.

Google FitApp

It's hard to know how much or what kind of activity you need to stay healthy. That's why Google Fit worked with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the American Heart Association (AHA) to bring you two new activity goals that can help improve your health: Move Minutes and Heart Points. These goals have been used in the intervention to motivate the students
