Project Journal

  • In what way is the project innovative
    ​ "The innovation of our project is that, we deal with the natural science, modern and interesting teaching methods that encourage students to learn subjects such as biology, chemistry, physics, math’s and there will be made a progress in the sciences.
    Currently, these subjects are taught in a standard way which sometimes does not meet the expectations of our students and does not arouse much interest.
    Our innovative action will help students to study in the fields of science and it also help them to find employment in the medical, pharmaceutical, chemical and biological area which in turn will prevent unemployment.
    We will focus on basic skills, interdisciplinary, reading in biology, chemistry, physics.
    Our students will participate in extracurricular activities, courses of interests which will be   conducted using an experimental method with lots of research, experiments, observations. That will allow the students to see the beauty of these teachings.
    So far we haven’t had this type of activities arousing greater students ’interests. Innovation in an international context will also strengthen the professional profile of teachers who, during the short training trips (peer learning) will learn from other teachers from abroad.
    The project will open up to the international dimension (multiculturalism) to a greater extent, we will deepen our skills in project management, the study of foreign languages, we will also develop skills and social competence skills for contemporary Europe.
    We will broaden the skills to motivate students to learn from the conscious mind of their own future, we will look for methods of teaching critical and logical thinking.
    The innovation will also be dealing with the problem of refugees that hit Europe. In each of the schools participating in the project, students will be prepared to deal with such a situation.
     Our project still expands the activities that are already carried out in our schools, in voluntary activities in order to develop  social competence and to support  media-reading education
    The project will be disseminated through local or national meetings, newspapers and the internet via our blog.
    All partners share the common goal of promoting active learning by improving school practices and enabling children to learn in a cross-curricular way that promotes independent learning, but which is also exciting and stimulating. We are more interested in the "how" of education, rather than in the "what".  We have identified a common need to focus on basic skills such as observation, reading, writing, research and analysis . Pupils adapt their language to different contexts, purposes and audiences. They plan, draft, revise and edit their own work in a range of subjects.
    We believe that the project will be highly motivational for both children and adults and through the use of a Multiple Intelligences (MI) approach we will also take into account the "type" of learner (visual, kinesthetic, etc.).
    Pupils will have the opportunity to work in small teams/groups and be involved in a variety of learning activities to improve their understanding of a subject. Moreover this strategy increases pupil retention, enhances pupil satisfaction with their learning experience, develops pupils' linguistic and social skills and promotes self-esteem as well as inclusion and positive social attitudes."
