A group appointed of managment, project managers and teachers in Vallaskóli in Selfoss along with representatives from the educational committee and from the IT Executive are planning on going on a educational trip to England with the intention of visiting schools that have been at the forefront of IT in their organizations and attend workshops and seminars regarding the administering of implementation.Vallaskóli has for the past three years been working on an developing project called Technical Teaching and increment of IT in our school. One of the main objectives of this trip is to increase knowledge and add experience. In 2017 Vallaskóli will model a pedagogical guideline with leading edge on IT and therefore will this trip become a crucial addition on the last meters. The group will along with teachers in Vallaskóli review and work on an effective approach on how to apply new methods in teaching. We will not only be focusing on our school but share our information and experience to other schools in our community for all ages.Vallaskóli has for the last three years been on the cutting edge on how to modernize our school and looked at the Iceland’s National Curriculum for Elementary Schools published in 2011. We have been focusing on improving learning outcomes, key competences, creative work, self regulatory studies of students, individualized curriculums, critical thinking, relevant learning as we want to become more modern in our organization which we believe is involved in using technology as a tool.Vallaskóli wants to follow schools around the world that have been using IT in their institutions and offer our students the same opportunities. By meeting with entrepreneurs and learning what they are doing we believe it will become easier for us to replicate and form a certain policy. Our main goal is off course that our student can enjoy a good education with opportunities in their future.
