Start date: 01 Jun 2016, End date: 31 May 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

METHODOLOGICAL INNOVATIONS FOR THE THE NEW CENTURY CLASSROOM The nature of our school undoubtedly summarizes the aim of this project, as it takes into account the individual needs of our students in order to achieve the model of educational excellence that is defined in our school Educational Project. Bárbara de Braganza Secondary School is the heir to the Badajoz Provincial School. It was founded in 1848 which means it is a historical institution in our city. Its educational offer includes:Secondary Education, from 1st to 4th, including Compensatory or Remedial Program and attention to diversity, and two Bilingual Sections: English and French.A levels, in Science and Engineering and in Humanities and Social Sciences.Higher Vocational Training: Early Childhood Education (in the classroom as well as blended education) and Socio-Cultural and Tourism.Basic Professional Training in Computer and Communications.In its long history teachers of the Institute have participated in a large number of educational projects including those organized by the European Commission.The participants in this project will be two teachers with permanent post in the center who meet the requirements of the project. One of them, in the scientific field, will attend a structured course of methodology based on ICT tools.The other participant in the project intends to make an observation period of good practice in a school in Germany.The main topics of the project are:- Teaching and learning foreign languages- Improvement of the quality and / or methodologies- Creativity and culture- Attention to diversityThe main objectives of the project are general training in languages and methodological renovation.In the first case, the need to strengthen the internationalization of the centre as well as the attention to our students, moves the need to train teachers of the centre.The second general objective responds to teaching and methodological innovation.Also related to languages, methodology based on new technologies will allow a much more efficient and integrated teaching model. On the other hand, when it comes to improving the methodology, the possibility to directly observe other educational practices through job-shadowing provide new elements for analysis and comparison of the various European educational realities.The expected impact on our school is, on the one hand, the improvement in the language skills of the teachers involved. An upgrade in the use of methodological tools based on ICT and the consolidation of its application in the bilingual sections of the institution.Also the improvement of teamwork, the implementation of the new strategies learned; without forgetting the communication of those lessons to the teachers at the school.Besides, other benefits will be the consolidation of tools for collaborative work between the partner countries, to strengthen the European dimension of the centre.Furthermore, and no less important to foster among our students an awareness of European citizens.The results will also be disseminated both locally, regionally and nationally.Locally will organize open events to teachers from other schools who may be interested and the call for a seminar on each of the modes of experience (languages, methodology ICT and job shadowing) to maximize the knowledge acquired by the participating teachers.On the regional and national level, the project and the activities undertaken will be published in the Web of the institution, in the blog of the various areas of knowledge, in the social networks and e-Twinning.Evaluation and monitoring will be integral to the project from start to finish. So all mobility activities will be evaluated continuously.We will use both casual and formal assessments to rate both positive and negative aspects.The approach we want to give to the evaluation process is twofold, on the one hand a self-assessment carried out by the group of teachers participating in the mobilities and on the other hand an external evaluation.For both evaluations will be used qualitative together with quantitative indicators. To gather data will be used structured questionnaires, systematic observation and discussion groups with open questions.The data will be recorded and we will issue a report which will assess the degree of achievement of the objectives.
