Putting Educational Technology into our Classrooms
Start date: Jul 1, 2015, End date: Jul 1, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

In our school we have pupils from over twenty different countries, as well as pupils from the indigenous travelling community. Even though there is a programme in place to assist pupils in transferring to post-primary schools some pupils drop out of the educational system before the age of sixteen and others leave with low educational attainments. While we have already put in place programmes to assist in raising pupil attainment in numeracy and literacy, we also believe that by giving pupils new experiences, by broadening their horizons, and by raising their expectations that we can also motivate them to become better learners. We want our pupils to have the knowledge, confidence, competences, citizenship and life skills so that they can participate in, and contribute to globalised societies and workplaces. We want our teachers to be adaptive, innovative, creative and receptive to new practices and methodologies. Our project involves six teachers attending three training courses with the objectives of learning more about technology in education, technology and CLIL, and technology and projects. We believe that by embedding the ethos of Europe and technology in our school, by using more collaborative project based work we will engage the pupils more actively in school. Through this active participation they will achieve success and develop competences and life skills that will serve them well into the future. We believe that participation in Erasmus+ actions will be critical in moving our school forward.
