COLUMBRETES, LET'S LEARN TOGETHER!
Start date: 01 Jun 2016,
End date: 31 May 2018
The project has a number of activities aimed at the dissemination and exploitation of the results obtained with the Erasmus+ experience. These lessons include the lessons learned and conclusions drawn after the experiences by our new participating team. Beyond participating organizations, outreach activities will enable the wider community to benefit from the experience. Therefore, the successes and results of the project will be publicized as far as possible and impact on other organizations also. SummaryCurrently, the centre has chosen methodologies that facilitate meaningful learning and that promote the personal involvement of students, their autonomy and their entrepreneurship. Our Project is called 'COLUMBRETES, LETS LEARN TOGETHER!' and with this project we hope to take action and change our methodologies in the centre which have been closely linked to the theory of multiple intelligences. The centre consists of three stages of education: Infants, Primary and Secondary Compulsory Education. The multiple intelligence teaching has already been implemented in the infant classes and now we hope to put it into practice in the Primary and Secondary Compulsory education. The application of the theory of the intelligences is directly linked to the cooperative learning, which together form a methodological tandem that can be considered an example of meaningful learning. According to Rogers, meaningful learning is that which makes a difference in 'individual's behaviour, in the course of actions he chooses in the future, in his attitudes and his personality'. He also distinguished between two types of learning 'the cognitive (meaningless) and the experiential (significant)'. Among the attributes of the latter are personal involvement and creativity and innovation, promoting autonomy and entrepreneurial spirit of the students at all levels and the evaluation of the students or self-evaluation. All these attributes improve the skills and the positive effects of the student, which in turn contribute to their employability, ensuring to the largest extent, one of the main objectives of Europe 2020. In addition it aims to address the high percentage of pupils aged 15 with low performance in basic skills such as reading, mathematics and science, a percentage which should be below 15%. This figure can decrease through a more motivational activities in which the student is the focus of the teaching- learning. Also, given the importance of languages in the objectives of Europe 2020, the project will also promote the learning of an foreign language. Obviously, the greater the knowledge of the teaching staff, the greater the knowledge of students in reference to these foreign languages. To carry out this project, we have made a number of previous trainings thanks to CEFIRE and Maphre Foundation. In addition to observing other work centres with similar methodologies that we hope to implement prior to a possible experience abroad. During the project, which will last 24 months we will carry out various activities among which can be found:A course in the UK in which teachers increase their knowledge of English and at the same time have the opportunity to examine the different approaches and teaching methods, in particular the Multiple Intelligence and Cooperative work. In the course teachers can discuss and share ideas with fellow European colleagues and the world in general. The course includes a variety of sessions such as workshops, conferences and communication links. After the academic training, our teachers are going to attend two job shadowing. One in Scotland which the Scottish government advocates to establish a cooperative methodology in their classrooms. And another one in Netherlands in a Steve Jobs School, which serves as an example of a successful implementation and outcome of this methodology in the classroom. Looking back on some previous points mentioned, we will make several workshops offering a solution to the educational needs of the centre and share our expertise acquired through the Job Shadowing with other faculty members and AMPA so that it will reach the entire educational community. We are planning to organize an open door house for parents and anyone interested.In addition, we put all our knowledge and tools available to CEFIRE, in order to organize workshops and/or presentations as it deems appropriate. Finally, the centre is going to organize seminars and discussion sessions with other schools and colleges in order to disseminate the project results and share our experiences with other educational centres.
