Summary of the project
The project is based on the analysis of the results and the defined goals of education of Elementary school nár. um. Ľ. Podjavorinskej with kindergarten Bzince pod Javorinou. Needs of the school were based on the SWOT analysis where are named the strengths and weaknesses of the school exactly, the opportunities that are offered, but the threats as well. The school aims to provide sufficient knowledge and skills to all students in general subjects and also to give each student a chance to develop their abilities. Our principle is direction of educational activities towards preparing students for life, so we are trying to acquire the necessary knowledge and skills for students, to ensure to know their correct use, to be able to think critically and creatively and solve problems quickly and effectively as well. All this places high demands for the expertise and professionalism of teachers, so school responds to the need to strengthen the professional development of teachers. They are highly interested in working on their professional and career development. Method of job-shadowing is one of the means to develop key competences of teachers to help their professional development, and thus increasing the efficiency of the educational work of the school. The idea of the project is to observe their counterpart from partner school in the educational and teaching process, to apply new knowledge to their own work, to confront their didactic, methodological and communication competencies in a different environment and also to enhance the level of teaching and learning process in own school. There would have been two mobilities attended by four teachers, a total of eight.
We plan mobility job shadowing - observing and monitoring the work of colleagues in partner school in teaching even preparing for it in the following areas:
a) teacher of mother tongue of the 2nd degree
b) teacher (English who teaches pupils whose mother tongue is Slavic, 1st and 2nd degree)
c) Science teacher
d) observing the work of the school headmaster
e) observing the work of teachers of the 1st degree – Biology and Geography
Furthermore we plan to realize lessons of Literature and Biology which would be lead by teacher of mother tongue and also Biology teacher from the partner school. Lessons would be based on thematic educational plans and the school curriculum. Teachers would be able to make certain of their methodologies in different environment - with pupils with another, even though close native language and pupils from the urban environment as well. Students would be able to verify whether their methods and procedures can take interest and learn something new pupils in another country. They would be also able to verify if they are able to act as teachers in a united Europe at least in the short term and would get the ability to improve their work based on gained experience. This will result in the development of key competencies of teachers and headmaster as well.
We expect that upon completion of the project will be an obvious career development of participants who will have expanded and consolidated competences in several areas. Impact to the professional development of staff - participants of the project is clear.
In conclusion, the expected impact of the project to the participating organizations will be reflected in the fact that they have educated teachers, and thus the better quality of school education. Organizations gain more experience in the management and implementation of activities of European education Erasmus +.
