The world in our hands- we can work it out.
Start date: 01 Sep 2014, End date: 31 Aug 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The project entitled "The World in our hands- we can work it out" is the result of a preparatory visit held in Duyum Isitme Engellier Ilk ve Orta Okulu Müdürlügü in Bursa, Turkey in January 2013. The idea came from the Beatles' song "We Can Work it Out" which means, together, using active methods, we can overcome the problems raised in educating children and children with disabilities. By using these active methods we'll engage children easily in the activity and their attention increases. This project will teach us social skills which we can achieve by using active learning methods. The key skills needed will be taught in all partner school , we want to share our knowledge and together prepare teaching materials for civic education,materials about active learning methods and games pedagogy. The main aim of teaching staff is developing teaching methods and gaining new knowledge by opportunity to work with such mixed international team. Our aim is to create our students opportunity to learn in informal way during mobilities abroad which will cause that our students will be motivated for learning foreign languages and gaining multicultural skills but also we aim to develop students' basic skills in mathematics and literacy. Thanks to developing these basic skills our students will get better grades which will bring positive benefits during final school exams. Students will discover their personal learning style by taking part in lessons which will be based on intellectual output about learning styles. We aim to provide a happy and inclusive, caring and secure environment where pupils have a voice, equality of opportunity and where racial harmony permeates throughout all areas of school life and after can be passed to their daily life. Through this approach, children learn in a stimulating environment where the cultures and customs of all pupils and their families are reflected and where pupils feel a collective responsibility to maintain it. We also ensure cooperation among teachers and pupils where they develop a sense of their own worth and emerge with enhanced self-esteem and confidence thus exploring their full potential. The objective will be to find the ways through which positive reinforcement and praise is given and independence enquiry and initiative are encouraged. Within this partnership we intend to address this specific area of need in which both staff and pupils across the partner schools will play a role within the project as it encompasses an inclusive element. We are a team of 9 countries who have been working together at the same subject which interest all participants- active methods. social skills, game pedagogy but above all we want to share our innovative teaching approaches.
