Different native tongue than Estonian in Kuristiku Gymnasium among classes is 20-50 %, therefore there is a need to know principles of studies of organization in multi-cultural classroom. This certain staff mobility project gives teachers a chance to develop themselves in this field in Europe. We have a multifunctional classroom in our school (Prestigio mTeacher/mStudent) with multipanel and a classroom full of tablets. Because Estonia lacks such trainings we need these sorts of trainings in Europe.
To improve learning environment child friendly are the best Europe´s practices in active- , creative- and project studies.
Early school dropout prevention practices in Europe help us to work with this problem (given the location of the school). For school as an institution we need a global vision for modern, innovative management strategies.
