Start date: 01 Jun 2016, End date: 31 May 2018 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Mater Dei Diocesan School, from Castelló de la Plana (Spain) is a catholic centre that provides pre-primary, primary, secondary and high school levels with a total amount of 799 students. Although most of the students come from Castelló de la Plana, pupils from other nearby towns are also studying here.After 25 years of experience, and after analyzing the results of internal and external assessments, we have decided to implement this European project to improve our teaching skills and, as a consequence, the academic results of our pupils at different levels: linguistic, social and cultural. The new technologies are a core element in this project."Opening doors: Mater Dei in Europe" programme has two parts. This application form contains the first part, "Improving our teaching process". In this first part, 10 teachers will get teaching training in different European countries. The teachers have been selected because of their social skills, the ability to work in groups, their interest in the European dimension of education, their wish to improve and their level of English or French. Thus, different training courses have been selected to get a wide overview of the new didactic competences. All the courses are related to new approaches (collaborative work, research projects, didactic units elaboration, ITC use, cultural immersion). All these aspects will provide the teachers with the necessary tools to develop new methodologies. Collaboration nets with other European schools will be established to carry on the second part of the project, when the pupils will have the chance to enjoy mobility around Europe.We wish to improve our academic results (through the acquisition of new social skills and the improvement of language skills), to implement innovative methodologies (that we are starting to work with now) and to refresh the teachers' language skills.In a long term, we want our school to become a European school, at the didactic forefront of our community, so that we can receive teachers and pupils from other parts of Europe.
