At the beginning , it was a project designed for six teachers, and it was supposed to be carried out in October 2015, but it was not approved at the very beginning, but after the estimated period, so the number of students and date had to be changed: the date then was April 2016, and four teachers instead. The training for teachers took place in Barcelona Pozo di Giotto, Messina, Italy and the Association ARocca was in charge of it. Our teachers were offered offered a general view about innovate teaching practices.
During five days, four teachers from our school attended training courses related to educational system in Italy. Also they visited different schools and learnt about teaching methodologies, such as communication through internet and classroom communication.
This program was created with the aim of improving the capacity for teaching of our teachers using the new and innovative methods in our home country. As well, they have acquired higher competence in English, as it has been the language used during the course.
