Start date: Sep 1, 2016,
End date: Aug 31, 2018
Based on the data published in the “Education and Training Monitor” by the EU Commission, it is clear that the ICT use into the school is still very low. Thus the European countries has published national plans for the digitization of schools, stating a set of features that they must meet. One of the objective of these plans is the setting up of a subject (defined as dynamic teacher) responsible for the improvement of the digitization into his own school. However, schools often do not have in their staff the individual able to lead the institute through the digitization process.So, the project aims at fostering the use of ICT into the schools, in accordance with the Erasmus plus horizontal priority “open and innovative education”. This objective will be met by meeting a specific one: the improvement of teachers’ and headmasters’ competences and knowledge about the use of ICT in the education, in accordance with the specific priority “Strengthening the profile of the teaching professions”. Finally the project aims at contributing to a systemic change of the teaching methods, making them more innovative and improving the teaching quality; and at raising awareness in schools, public entities and local community about the importance of the use of ICT into the educational activities.The partners (7) are:- IISP Via Pedemontana (IT), leader: public school – it will manage the project management;- Consorzio Ro.Ma. (IT): VET provider – it will manage the monitoring and evaluation activity;- University of Bremen (DE) – ITB: research centre with a strong expertice in innovation and use of the new technologies into the schools;- Inercia Digital S.L. (ES): SME with a strong expertise in the use of web 2.0 into the schools – it will manage the dissemination activity;- Erdem Bayazit Anadolu Lisesi (TU): public school;- Zespol Szkol w Jankowie Przygodzkim (PL): public school.The project foresees the development of two intellectual outputs.The first IO is a training path for the definition of strategies for the digitization of schools, aimed at the improvement of teachers’ and headmasters’ competences on the matter. It foresees:- The definition of best practices of digitization of schools;- The sharing among experts and target group;- The definition of training contents;- The training delivery;- Pilots of digitizations of schools.In order to get the training path delivery more efficient, a Join Staff Training Event will be handled in the University of Bremen, it will last 5 days and focus on the following topics:- learning environments for the integrated digital learning;- development/improvement of networks, connectivity, accesses;- lab for creativity and entrepreneurship;- school library as media environment;- e-records and cloud database;- data security;- media and social network in the educational activities;- quality of the information, copyright and privacy – search, selection and organization of information;- development of the computational thinking;- open educational resources (OER) and development of digital contents;- collaboration and communication online;- educational scenarios and processes for the integration of mobile, digital environments and use of personal devices at school (BYOD).Crosswise the web community platform –O2 - will be developed in order to get the training path usable and for the long-life upgrading of teachers and headmasters. The development of a community awareness platform (community for the peer learning) aims at being a landmark for the community of teachers, headmasters, training expert, and ICT expert for the long life learning of innovative strategies, tools and methods, in order to keep pace with the technological progresses and the educational environments’ needs.The main results is the spread of an innovative methodology for the development of strategies for the digitization of schools.The project will provide the public entities in the education field with tools useful to the meeting of their policies, as:-O1 – the training path will be a tool for the improvement of cross knowledge and competences of the dynamic teacher (and others teachers and headmasters) useful to the correct implementation of a strategy for the digitization of the school, so to meet the national and European policies in the matter.- O2 – the web community platform will be used by the users as tools of long-life upgrading of own competences and knowledge in the ICT field and first of all in the use of the latter within the schools.
