Project Title Strengthening of didactic skills of teaching staff, Development of innovative learning methodology, efficient use of ICT, Internationalisation through strategic school partnerships for the subjects Computer Science and Spanish. "The Future of Education - Chalkboards and Gamification in a Digital Society" 1. Project background The public Benedictine Stiftsgymnasium in St. Paul im Lavanttal is a secondary academic school (Secondary level I / ISCED 2 / 10-13 years and secondary level II / ISCED 3 & 4 / 14-17 years). The focus of our school is on the subjects of languages and natural sciences that are taught by our academically educated teachers using the latest cultural and teaching techniques. These are embedded in an implemented humanistic dimension. 2. Project goals In accordance with our sustainable and future-oriented school development, the project strives for the following goals for the subjects Computer Science and Spanish: - Strengthening of didactic skills of teaching staff; - Development of innovative learning methodology; - efficient use of ICT; - Internationalisation through strategic school partnerships; - Promote Lifelong learning. 3. Number of teachers and profiles The school director and the project coordinator will select three teachers . The possibility of mobility programs will be announced as part of a conference. If the demand and willingness is high, the teacher will be selected according to the following criteria: Willingness to take part in an international cooperation (Initiation of school and strategic partnerships), active use of the eTwinning-Platform, guidelines from the provisional subject assignment list (e.g. teaching in pilot classes for the central school leaving examination (matura)). 4. Description of activities We would like the elected teachers to implement all activities within the scope of the mobility programs that lead to an improvement of all methodological, language and cultural aspects of ICT and reinforcement of the European dimension of our school. 5. Project implementation procedure Practical and logistic arrangements will be made in the organisational department. Before beginning of and during the mobility programs, telephone and email contact is available between the school, the travel agency, (arrival and return trip, accommodation, medical and travel insurance and travel cancellation insurance) the meeting organizer and the educational institution (course preparation and supporting documents). If available, skype and social media can be used for communication. The teachers will carry their own E-Card together with an E111 health insurance certificate for travel abroad and a private health insurance policy card. Goals, expectations, quality criteria and educational agreements - the subject of this project – will be decided in advance by the teachers and the educational institutions. The elected teachers will be particularly informed about all subjects (task-related, intercultural, risk prevention). If necessary, a language course to refresh language skills will be arranged for the teachers and completed before departure. Cooperation between all project partners should lead to achievement of all goals. 6. Short description of targeted results and effects A pre-evaluation of the proposed results will already be carried out during the mobility programs by requiring feedback from the course organizer. Also, a DELE exam for the subject Spanish will be a further indicator of achievement of the goals. We will implement ad hoc instruments for teaching diagnostics, in order to ensure that the acquired knowledge is implemented in the curriculum in the following school year. Moreover, we will implement new experience into the school's educational plan and development strategy. We expect the participating teacher to implement the acquired knowledge in all areas (methodological, language, cultural and technical) as an added value and to contribute to the enrichment of our school policy (quality of instruction, use of educational materials, and learning methods) with an increased European dimension. Because a change in the class schedule for the subject of Spanish is planned, this mobility program will have an important influence on the future strategic development of our teaching establishment. 7. Expected long-term benefit We expect the linked international contacts (through eTwinning and during both mobility programs) to lead to particularly interesting and cross-border cooperations and friendships. In conclusion, we hope that this project – in addition to all other educational strategic development measures – will lead to a continuous qualitative and quantitative improvement of our school.
