The idea of developing a mobility project for teachers from Vocational School Luigi Einaudi starts from the consideration that school needs to improve its quality and efficiency of teaching, in order to better deal with the challenges coming from its target groups. Students in our school often come from disadvantaged social and cultural contexts at educational level, and belong to families with difficult economic conditions, a medium-low cultural status and where parents have not got a regular or fixed job. The consequences of all these aspects are: very strong tendency to lack of interest for education, low performances and drop-outs. Our main aim is to deliver attractive, innovative and efficient programs able to combat these difficulties.
The project "SMART Mobility" promoted and coordinated by the Vocational School Luigi Einaudi, with the partnership of CEIPES - International Center for Promotion of Education and Development, consists of 32 mobility flows, distributed in the following way: 10 teachers involved in study visits in five different countries (2 participants for each country); 4 teachers involved in CLIL courses in two different countries (2 participants for each country); 6 teachers will participate in a Professional Updating Course on teaching a foreign language, which will take place in two different countries (3 participants for each country); 12 teachers will participate in a Professional Updating Course on technologies tools for teaching in three different countries (4 participants for each country).
The idea of planning a mobility system for our teachers is included in a wider process of educational renovation carried out by the coordinating institution. We want to guarantee to our teachers the opportunity to exchange experiences with other institutions with the final aim of promoting a continue updating process; we believe that the professional growth coming from these experiences will create great synergies and cooperation able to develop a wider knowledge and to improve the educational system of the Institute.
Mobility flows of Einaudi teachers will help in: 1. Renovating teaching methodologies to make them more appropriate for the targets of the Institute. 2. Developing teachers’ technical, methodological, linguistic and intercultural skills. 3. Promoting social dimension of education, sharing of knowledge, acquiring and using knowledge, abilities and qualifications to facilitate personal development. 4. Enhancing recognition of competences and qualifications, included those acquired through non-formal and informal learning, and the use of new learning and teaching methodologies. 6. Strenghtening cooperation among institutions and organizations.
Thanks to these tools and to the dissemination strategy based on the synergy among different tools, such as: meetings with institutions, conferences, Erasmus + points, e-twinning platform and partners websites, the project will guarantee the following log term results:
- Improvement of awareness by National and International target groups on the importance of mobility for a learning process
- Development of “Einaudi mobility system” which guarantees, also thanks to the cooperation with organizations such as CEIPES, easier future participations to mobility projects at European level for students and staff. Moreover, to leave concrete marks of these projects creating synergies and positive wider impact.
- Development of personal and professional competences for the beneficiaries.
