The Consortium of the European Project "eMysteries: Detective Stories to Engage Students in Close Reading with the Use of Mobile Devices", is pleased to announce that the project was successfully completed. The project was funded by the European Union and was carried out under the auspices of the ERASMUS+ programme.

The mission of the eMysteries project was to develop the capacity of upper secondary school teachers working with students (15-18 year-olds) in using digital tools for addressing literacy goals. To achieve this, the project

  • offered a rich media mobile-device-supported interactive environment which can be utilized for educational purposes among upper secondary education students (15-18 year-olds) in order to enhance their literacy skills by actively engaging them in close reading activities. By using the interactive environment, students will have the opportunity to create their own detective stories that can be adapted to various characters and plots.
  • offered a Teacher’s Toolbox and an online platform dedicated to enhance teacher’s capacity and professionalism on how to use the eMysteries environment and resources in their daily practices.

The six partners from five different countries (Germany, Ireland, Portugal, Cyprus, Spain) have undertaken the implementation of the eMysteries activities and constitute the project consortium. All partners were very satisfied and proud of the work achieved. The final event will take place in Schwerin/Germany on 18th of November 2021.
