CONTEXTThe school San Bartolomé (Pre-school and Primary school) is situated in a district of Orihuela. We have 225 students between 3 and 12 years old. The staff is formed by 21 teachers; five of them in pre-school, eight in primary, the rest are specialists and one school counselor at part-time. Since 2014/2015 we are developing a Linguistic Project, in which we use Spanish, Valencian and English in non-linguistic areas. We have carried out two Comenius Projects. We are immersed in the renovation of our School Educative Project. For this reason, taking into account our staff requests, we apply for the development of this project. We expect ourselves to train in new technologies, so that they help us to improve our experience in the classroom, in the same way that our students can improve their relationships. We pretend to be each time more internationals, contributing a European vision to our students. On the other hand, we want to be a modern constitution using TICs in the classroom.OBJECTIVES The objectives we consider are:To improve the educative offer of our institution, using innovating methodologies as PBL, cooperative, learning through game, promoting personal relations based on respect, solidarity, comradeship and fight against bullying.To improve digital competence of our students, using TICs to motivate our pupils, favoring the communal living and improving their marks.To improve our experience as teachers by the creation of a more modern surrounding, more dynamic, opened to new educative experiences and the collaboration of other schools and institutions.To integrate in our School Educative Project the observations from other educative systems: other teaching practice, guiding us to the internationalization and updating of our institution.NUMBER AND PARTICIPANTS PROFILE Management team will be the Erasmus Commission. They will promote the organization, logistics, the activities to carry out, its monitoring and evaluation as its impact and promotion in all the educative community. From all the staff, four teachers will carry out the training activities and planned job shadowing. These teachers must have a previous knowledge of the English language (B1), previous experience in new methodologies (they must have applied this methodologies in the classroom).
