Summary/Abstract: The special national programme called „Doing School Differently Week”, introduced in 2011 by the Romanian Ministry of Education offers an opportunity for creative, interesting and attractive extracurricular activities. Such an activity was the one entitled „ Oradea – The Art Nouveau capital of Romania”. It took place on the 23rd of March 2018 and it was done together with the 9th grade students from the class I coordinate as a class teacher. The activity was initiated because of two main reasons, i.e. 2018 is the European year of Cultural Heritage and Oradea is the only city in Romania which belongs to the European Art Nouveau cities network.The activity had two distinct parts. A presentation session organized within the school and a study visit in situ, in order to see and examine some of the most important buildings in Oradea whose architecture was influenced by the Art Nouveau style. As a follow –up activity the students were asked to contribute to a specific Padlet, an online virtual board in which they included personal pictures of the sites accompanied by their feelings and comments regarding the experience.
