Making and designing a toy drone through multidisciplinary collaborative work
Start date: Sep 1, 2015, End date: Aug 31, 2018 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The project objective is to work on the concepts of product innovation, project-based learning, multidisciplinary working relationships, improving language proficiency and knowledge of technology and trends. The aim is to generate high-quality curriculum materials that allow students to approach to the World of Work. Consortium wants to help motivate future professionals in STEM careers. In order to achieve this a base model will be used, on which students should learn and customisation in teams. The chosen base model will be a toy drone. To improve key Competencies and, based on the development of a complex toy, put together students from different disciplines and knowledge (peer learning) so that they starting with some basic requirements, are able to evolve a basic model and generate their own toy. This project was born of knowledge and complementarity of the four participating VET Schools from Spain, Croatia, Poland, Slovenia and a Spanish Technology Centre expert in toys. This project is foreseen for three years: the objective of first year is to join teachers and experts in order to develop the base Open Educational Resources. During the second and third year of the project, students will perform their works. For this, multidisciplinary teams will be formed, with one student from each of the schools that will work together in a customisation of their drone. In this sense each team will have a coacher and also a tutor. It means that the coacher is a teacher with a technical background and the tutor of the team will be an English teacher who will support them and drive their communications with other students of the same team from the others schools. The project ends with the provision for Educational Community of all developed OER and conducting a MOOC course that will be active and maintained for at least five years after the project is completed.
