Towards Active Student Participation
Start date: Jun 1, 2015,
End date: May 31, 2017
Our school is a large comprehensive school comprising grades 1-9. We provide teaching to over 900 students. In the coming years, we will implement the new national curriculum in which active student participation is a core element. Amongst other important objectives, computers and iPads will increasingly be used to enhance each student's active role in his/her individual learning process, making use of the interdisciplinary perspective as well. By participating in the European Erasmus+ programme of life long learning, our teachers aim at developing new teaching methods to meet the requirements of the new national curriculum, which is to be implemented in the years 2016-2019.
The school headmaster and six subject teachers are motivated to take part in this project in order to develop European co-operation with other European schools. We seek to improve our language skills, cultural knowledge and methodologies in the use of ICT in the classroom. By networking with teachers from other European countries we are looking forward to knowledge and inspiration for getting involved in various e-twinning projects. Since we are a language-oriented comprehensive school, we are looking for ways to implement and expand C.L.I.L. in fresh, new ways. Our teachers also need to improve their language proficiences to be able to work with international language tests for the better proficiency of our students. The long-term aim of this project is to offer our students opportunities to participate in exchange programmes and our teachers opportunities to take part in job shadowing and observation in the European context through this European educational study programme.
