Revonlahti Erasmus+ 2016
Start date: 01 Jun 2016, End date: 31 May 2018 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Our school Revonlahti is a primary school in Siikajoki. There are five teacher from our school in the project. We are trying to get financing for them to have an international schooling. Teachers are very willing to take part in the project and to improve their language and pedagogical skills. Our aim is to improve both pupils and staffs language skills and add their courage to communicate with foreign languages. We think that internationality is a possibility and hope it could be a natural part of our daily routines. To have courage to meet different kind of people is one of the most important things we want to develope in our countryside school. With international contacts we get valuable experiences to meet people. Ecperiences from different cultures help us to understand differences. Because the society today is coming more and more international, also we are going to meet more and more differencies and different people. One of our aims is to find international networks. This will help us to carry out our international project. This will open new international doors for our pupils, too. Strong knowing in technology will help us to reach these plans and to communicate with the networks. Information technology involves a lot of foreign language programs and applications. Improving your foreign language skills will also improve your technological skills in schoolwork. We need schooling how to use more effectively our new it equipments. Modern technology offers pedagogical possibilities and we want to quarantee that our pupils will reach skills. It is important that the stuff knows how the ICT equipments work. It is the only way to use them effectively. Alltough we have to remember that the information technology is not an end in itself, but helps the pupils for more effective and more interesting learning. It has been observed that the versatile utilization of ICT equipment increases the student's own pedagogical activity and comfort. Our Erasmus+ project will give answers to these aims. Two of our teachers are planing to take part in a one week language course in Malta. We have planned that the teachers will start teaching English language in classes from third to sixth. Three of our teachers are palnning to take part in a one week ICT course in Portugal. We believe we get the best possible synergy by these two courses. Teacher will reflect all the learning and write it down on the blog of the school. This is how the other teachers and pupils can follow the courses in real time. After the courses we share all our knowledge to the stuff and begin to use it in our teaching. Every teacher is a active partisipant and collects knowledge. After the courses teachers share their knowhow with colleaques. We also do that to other schools in Siikajoki. Our headmaster will encourage other schools to take part Erasmus+ project by telling about our project in the headmasters meeting. Our teachers will be ready to give lectures for other teachers on the schooling days. We tell about the project to the parents of our pupils. We hope to have the parents excited about ICT skills and internationality. We are planning to write an article about the courses and teachers' studies during Erasmus+ project in local paper. These common projects of school will enlarge the feeling of togetherness. This is also way we develop the social skills of our pupils, teachers and the other stuff. We are sure, that this project gives a positive influence for the atmosphere in our school.
