Kaikkien Kastelli - Kastelli for everyone
Start date: Jun 1, 2015,
End date: May 31, 2017
Kastelli comprehensive school has moved to new premises in August 2014. We co-operate with daycare, upper secondary school, youth centre and library which all share the premises with us. Therefore, our working environment, not only physically but also otherwise, has changed a lot. We have new colleagues, many new learners and we are building up new ways of working together. Our school values are sustainable development, sense of community, security and courage. These values are highlighted in our plan for internationalization, too. The number of immigrant learners has been and is increasing. Teachers take into consideration the cultural backgrounds of the learners in their everyday actions.
We are applying for Erasmus+ programme to create a network and get new perspectives to our work. We aim at improving our creativity, language skills and enhance our knowledge of different cultures. This way we will be better prepared to face the demands of our everyday work. We are especially interested in different ways of integrating recently immigrated learners, using interactive tools/learning environments and pedagogical prospects. We would like to get a deeper view of special education, co-teaching, sustainable development and learning technologies. The new National Curriculum (2016) emphasizes teaching across subject borders, so we are looking for new ways of implementing this idea at our work.
We are applying for the grant for ten teachers and our headmaster. The participants are taking part in various courses in different countries. Some of us are interested in a Job Shadowing period. We will prepare for the training periods by completing pre-assignments for the courses, by getting to know the materials and circumstances at site beforehand. All information and knowledge gained during this programme will then be passed on to our colleagues at meetings and training sessions.
