„Quality Improvement in Foreign Language Teaching and in Using ICT at St. Joseph Catholic Primary School” is the first Erasmus+ project of this institute. As a part of this project the head teacher and three foreign language teachers will take part in two-week teacher training courses in England and two teachers in one-week job-shadowing programmes in Germany. In our school there are 460 students learning in 20 groups, and 45 teachers. Almost all the lessons are held by qualified teachers. We have intensive English teaching and German nationality language teaching in the school. We have been taking part in various Comenius projects since 2007. Due to national tenders we have 100 student laptops, 2 smart boards but we would like to increase the number of ICT equipment.
The improvement of the content and methodology of foreign language teaching is one of the medium-term goals of the school. It is built upon the competence improvement of teachers, the efficient cooperation, the sharing of knowledge among the teachers of the same subjects and among the teachers working in the same groups and this tender is to help these features.
The head teacher and the teachers speaking a foreign language take part in the mobility of this teacher training project, which improves language teaching and ICT usage. They are committed to continuous improvement and development of the quality of education. Our training partners in the United Kingdom (IPC, ISP, Anglolang) have decades of experience in teacher training, their teachers are well-known experts. The job-shadowing programmes take place in the German partner school of our present Comenius project where our colleagues will be part of the life of the school in Halle, will visit and also give lessons.
For the smooth realization of the project an Erasmus+ group is formed in the school. We would like to ensure the success of the process by naming the exact activities, deadlines and people in charge.
In the courses chosen and pre-registered, our colleagues will have the opportunity to improve their language skills, visit educational institutions, work with an international team, and share their experiences about teaching. One course deals with content-based language teaching which helps the professional usage of the course-book used in our school. Each course deals with the possibilities in using ICT equipment and modern computer softwares in education today.
As a result of the project the planning of the pedagogical processes and the ability of expressing self-reflection connected to them will be improved among teachers. The results are planned to be spread extensively (by the head teacher, consultant-expert, language teachers) so they will have an effect on all the teachers teaching in the school. Supporting learning is emphasized among the teacher competences, which is based on learning to learn. During the project the teachers will improve the knowing and development of their own teaching methods. What the teachers have learnt will be implemented into the lessons and form periods, the knowledge will be passed on in meetings. Educational authority, teachers, children and also parents are in the target group. The results of the project will be presented on the blog of the project, eTwinning site, exhibitions, articles and reports. The result of the project will be implemented into the school curriculum and will motivate colleagues for self-improvement and for taking part in the Erasmus+ programme later on.
