TIICEE (Techniques Informatiques pour l' Innovation, la Communication et l'Echange en Europe)
Start date: Aug 31, 2016,
End date: Aug 30, 2018
The project TIICEE (Information Technology for Innovation Cooperation and Exchange in Europe) takes place in the Institution Sainte Marie in Ribeauvillé in Alsace, member of la Fondation Providence de Ribeauvillé. The school is composed of a primary school, a lower secondary school and a boarding school for girls and boys. We have 320 pupils. The project TIICEE aims at renovating the pedagogy in our school because we have to admit that too many pupils aren't interested in learning any more and we, teachers, find really difficult to motivate them. We need to teach differently and they need to learn differently too. We have listed our priorities: first we think that it is vital to widen their intercultural approach so that they can fit in tomorrow's world at best. Through E-Twinning or other exchange projects they should become aware of the necessity to understand another language and work with citizens from the European Union. Then we think that the pupils must use the ITC tools intelligently and properly. Finally we need to develop the "working together", the autonomy, the creativity and the choice-making process in all the teenagers so that they can find a good job. A group of 6 teachers and a member of staff have volunteered to attend training sessions about various topics all through Europe. The structured courses with school visits ("job shadowing") are meant to observe and understand new and innovating teaching practices in countries such as Iceland, Finland or Ireland. Other training sessions are more specialized and concern the science teacher, the sports teacher, drama techniques and ITC tools. Finally a training session about the European citizenship and multiculturality is also planned. The teachers will implement these new teaching techniques but also take part in new European partnerships and projects. These new practices will be tested by the teachers for two years and will play an important part in the school project. L'Institution Sainte Marie will be facing two very important projects in the next two years: we have started the TIICEE project and its end should coiincide with our new school. Indeed la Fondation Providence de Ribeauvillé will start renovating and building a brand new school for 2018. Europe, through the projects, will symbolically settle in our new buildings in September 2018 when we officially inaugurate the new Institution. Our objectives with the TIICEE project is to teach motivated pupils who like learning. We want them to understand how the speaks and thinks and who he is, we want them to use the ICT tools in an efficient way, we want them to be good professionals in their future life who can create, choose, work alone or in a team. The teachers will come back from this project with a new impulse to do their job. For our school the impact will be a new positive and committed image in the large communities of parents, mayor, members of la Fondation and la Direction Diocésaine d'Alsace.
