The need of the project "Internationalization of curriculum" arose from Primary school Oskar Kovacic strategic action plan. It was found necessary to improve the following areas: the inclusion of children from different cultural backgrounds in the educational process, development of teachers’ and pupils' ICT skills and improving the quality of education through internationalisation.The project aims to enable the school staff to raise their professional qualifications, to improve the educational process, integrating the skills acquired through mobility, and to expand the opportunities for European cooperation in order to modernize and internationalise the curriculum.The project mobilities will involve one teacher who specialize in different areas: educational program development, international project management, inclusion of children from different cultural backgrounds.Project methodology responds to institution startegic and European developemnt plan - in all phases of the project participants will focus on raised objectives and apply their knowledge in their work, enabling positive changes in the school organisation: innovation of curriculum, methodology and ICT. At preparation stage, the participants emphasize the cooperation with other colleagues abroad and develop their ICT skills. During the courses participants will focus on the target competencies, knowledge and skills, while the follow up will uptake reflection, improvement and dissemination of good practices.Project management is oriented to quality - with clear procedures: formation of impartial selection committee, setting the selection criteria for in contracts with participants, engaging eTwinning program tools for the smooth execution of the project, providing participants with monitoring techniques and principles, setting clear terms. This will help to ensure the quality of the project in order to achieve envisaged project goals.Expected results of the project: the participants will acquire and improve not only general educational competencies, but also will absorb the various inclusive approaches involving children from different cultural backgrounds in the educational process, develop their computer literacy, will gain a broader and inclusive understanding of education programs in the European context, acquire knowledge and the ability to plan and carry out international projects, improve communication and collaboration skills working with international partners, and improve their foreign language skills.The long-term effects and benefits: It is expected that the (number of teachers going to courses) teachers have a significant impact on the experience of all the employees - using new methods, changing the learning environment, developing an inclusive curriculum - significantly will improve the quality of education in our school. We hope that the participants will become more open to change, the modernization of the educational process and internationalisation of school curriculum and will be willing to share their knowledge and disseminate best practices in the school, the city and in the country.
