Using IT in new teaching methods for European dimension school
Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

One of the goals of Rujiena secondary school is to transform the traditional directive teaching and learning into innovative, creative process, to develop the school as a platform for more efficient further education. We are planning to implement new teaching methods, to compare and share our experience with foreign colleagues by learning about their education systems, studying innovative curricula and trying to use the most valuable patterns in our school. The goals are to give a chance to the pedagogical staff to attend courses, to apply their new knowledge in pedagogical practice, to develop and enlarge subject inter-relation, to enhance their foreign language proficiency and communication skills, and to use creatively IT in Europe and worldwide. The teachers of the involved Rujiena secondary school from Latvia under the current project will have a chance to learn from and communicate with the Swedish course lecturers, to collaborate and work together with course participants from various European countries. After the project we intend to share the results with other teachers and staff members of the school, to provide them with new ideas, study aids and methods to be implemented in class work by using mobile information technologies. The teachers together with pupils will use their IT skills to to take part in international e-Twinning projects. Elderberry AB Adult Education Centre offers very topical and modern courses in four programs. The topics comprise both conventional and innovative approaches. The programs include lectures and practical activities which make the project highly educational, creative and valuable. The main project activities are: to present yourself and your country, to master and implement practical digital skills, to develop and save digital information, to be able to retrieve and use it later, to get to know e-teaching and its tools, to study resources and medial skills, to develop team work skills, research and debating skills on various topics, etc. The main goal of the project is to apply the newly acquired knowledge and skills in practical school work making it more effective and efficient. We intend to find financing for additional digital technologies and to acquire them to enhance class work and extra-curricular activities. We are going to motivate teachers to create new moderns teaching aids. We intend to start international e-Twinning and Erasmus Plus KA2 school projects.
