Simona S-Lithuania, Feb. 9, 2012

Hello. My name is Simona and I’m from Lithuania. Our school is participating in this project and I’m really happy to try it this year. Yesterday I calculated my footprint and guess what. It was a lot higher than the average. This fact was a true surprise for me, because my family is trying to live environmentally friendly life. Using wood for home heating is not a great way after all. Well, now i can’t do nothing about it, but I think when I’ll be living on my own, I will try to use solar or other energy. I don’t really want to do any harm to my planet.

Ingrida M-Lithuania, Feb. 9, 2012

Hello everyone! My name is Ingrida and I’m from Lithuania. Our school is participating in this great project. When calculated my footprint I was shocked. I hadn’t expected this to be that high! The highest result was on home energy and appliances part. Now I’m determened to change my habbits.

    Well, I never leave my computer turned on when I don't use it. The highest result on home appliance part was when I clicked that I use non-energy saving light bulbs. Yesterday I suggested my mother to buy energy saving light bulbs and she agreed.

    I had the same exact experience! I was also shocked to see that my carbon footprint had very high results, and hope too that I can make a change!

    I'm sure you will! Sometimes we need very little to make a difference. We need to know what exactly we are doing wrong. I'm sure after counting your carbon footprint you know it.

Hi everyone,
I am a student from Lithuania. Our school participate in this project the third time and I joined this project for the first time. I have just calculated my footprint so I am very happy that it is lower than the average.

Hi to all,
I am a teacher in a Greek high school and with my class are very pleased to participate in this program. We have started using the calculator two days ago and the first impression is that out footprint is lower than the average. The next thing to do is find out which behavior we have to change or to improve in order to decrease the amount of CO2 we generate.

    Hi Basilis, my pupils and I enjoy participating in the ISCFC too and are ready to make some personal changes in our daily lives as well.

    Hi, Basili, We've just started the transportation portion, and I think some of the kids are going to be stunned at what they find. I'm predicting that affluence will impact the outcome, though, since I'm already noticing that the kids who aren't well off (and there are many here) don't really leave this little rural town much. If you did this same project in the suburbs where I live, I think transportation emissions would skyrocket. I personally am going to go out of my way to carpool more.

Patricia Theodosopoulos, Feb. 7, 2012

Hello to all - we are so excited to participate in the challenge for the first time. My students started yesterday. Although here in NY city our footprints are generally lower then the rest of the country, we have MUCH that can be improved! It is great that the students can go back and change their answers and really see which changes in their behaviors could decrease their footprints the most. I feel certain they will want to challenge themselves again in a few months to see how much better they are doing!

    Sounds like your students are really making use of the CF Calculator. If they look at the links on the top left side of the page, they will be able to determine how much CO2 is generated from the one behavior choice. Another button shows how the figure was calculated.
  • Patricia Theodosopoulos Patricia Theodosopoulos Feb. 8, 2012
    Great! I'll make sure they check it out. Thanks

    Hello Patricia,
    I have started completing the calculator questionnaire with my pupils today and have collected most of the data but haven't emailed our total footprint yet. We'll have to change our lifestyle too (especially in the second category: home energy and appliances).

Hey! can you share projects securely with students? Is there a student account?

    The quick answers to your questions are:

    >can you share projects securely with students?

    If a project is marked as “restricted,” then its members (people you accept as members, such as your students) will be the only ones who can contribute via posts and comments. But content in “restricted” projects will still be viewable by the public.

    Soon, we'll be adding the ability to mark projects as “private” so that only project members can contribute to AND view project content.

    >Is there a student account?

    At present, there is only one type of Einztein member account. If you want to invite your students to join Einztein, please go to “invite” under “account”. You can invite up to 25 people. If more invites are needed, just let us know.

    Should you have additional questions, feel free to message me by clicking my profile, then clicking “contact.”

    -Elsa

Longish but incredibly insightful ;) interview about Einztein by Kirsten Winkler @EduKwest. For some reason, the lights on my end made everything look extremely yellow. That aside, it pretty much captures what Einztein is about. The only thing I would add is that, while we want to bridge classroom learning and “real” learning, we are definitely not for classroom learners, only.
