Un teorema en la Biblioteca
Start date: 01 Sep 2014, End date: 31 Aug 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

In our model of society, the fact that students leave compulsory Secondary school without getting the required degree does not only affect their academic world, but also their whole life, since it limits their future options both relating to work or social setting, which may have significant deleterious consequences.Nowadays the Secondary School Certificate is necessary for the students so that they can continue the post-compulsory stage of Schooling (Further Education or Vocational Studies) and it also encourages a better social integration in a society involved in a process of technological evolution. Consequently, our future citizens must be educated by designing a curriculum that promotes innovative and integrated open-minded ways of thinking about education – as it is said in Delors report -learning to know, to do and to live together.The values, the self-building of identity or the integrated development of the whole person as individuals and basic competences to acquire the background which is the keystone for successful learning.Reaching this point, the most important competence is reading:the reading competence contributes to understand a tale or a poem, a philosophical or scientific text, the formulation of a problem, basic instructions or any other way of explanation on the Internet. Reading allows us the access to all kinds of knowledge. According to this reflection, we can understand that the development of linguistic skills needs to be supplemented with the mastering of the new communicative strategies, which are currently adapted to the existing codes and languages in different scientific and technological contexts.Our first aim is to find a way of being motivating. For that reason we are going to create a READING AND SEARCHING CLUB based on the use of new technologies along with different interdisciplinary proposals with the clear purpose to avoid an early drop out of school by expanding forms of participation in school relevant activities and by promoting some basic competences - linguistic communicative competence,. mathematical competence, knowledge of and interaction with the physical world, competence in information and communication technologies, social and civil competence, cultural and artistic competence, the competence of learning to learn and the competence of personal autonomy and initiative . Therefore, we have decided to change our schoolrooms into a workshop where students will acquire these skills by reading, writing, researching and experiencing continuously. The fundamental pillar of the CLUB will be the development of researching on the net so that the students will be able to obtain meaningful learning.We will start analyzing two main aspects: the sociological context for European teenagers and the presence of science in our daily life. Both aspects enable us to develop motivation, comprehension skills, experimentation, critical analysis, the handling of information and digital competence in a deeper way. We will create a CLUB which will be considered as the learning core with the implication of both several social and educational agents from our area, as well as from other different countries.Organizing regular meetings with different people and institutions will stimulate our students to participate in a collective action related to their education.This project works toward poor-motivated students of 4º ESO (4th course of secondary school) and they will be coordinated by two teachers from the Spanish Language department and one from the Information Technology one.We expect to improve students' academic standard and encourage self motivation and being pro-active with this project. We have a reading and investigation club which is fortnightly meeting in each country and we have another Club, which is international and the meetings will be held via Skype every month to share the investigations.The outcomes of our work comprising the analysis of the texts and the researching work made by the students will become a methodological guidance which will be published on a multilingual web site, on the European Union platform.The aim of this project is to decrease the number of school failure of our students that may begin in the earliest grades, as well as to improve the basic competences and the learning of a foreign language. Furthermore, we expect to maximize a participation-identification model focused on students’ “involvement in schooling”, with both behavioral and emotional components, which may culminate in a more successful and satisfactory academic status.The whole educational community will profit from this experience as it concerns the whole Europe. The number of institutions and schools involved are the reason why this project will benefit a wide range of students.The participant instutions are High School Zaidin-Vergeles y Parque de las Ciencias de Granada ,Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy,Norway, Slovenia and Poland. Both private and public schools are involved.
