IMPACT


We are 5 partners from different 5 countries and we created this project in a complete agreement of all partners as far needs, rationale, objects, tasks and share of tasks, meeting programme, Learning/ Teaching/ Training activities for pupils are concerned.

Students

We will work on the definite innovative strategies to provide the knowledge and skills that students will need to succeed in a new global world as old-fashioned model of education is no longer applicable. We will focus on these six strategies. Pupils will be the main actors of the project and they will improve enthusiasm for school and responsible behavior which will help them overcome lack of basic skills. Our project will develop an inclusive approach, integrate good practices and new methods into daily activities and improve practices to cater for the needs of disadvantaged groups and it will deal with social, linguistic and cultural diversity. The students will take advantage of these aspects.

Teachers

The teachers of the partner schools will exchange ideas, thoughts, pedagogical and methodological material, observe lessons, learn about the inclusive approach which will make their learning and teaching process more effective.

They will be able to develop their language, communication, managerial and negotiation skills as well as the team spirit. Learning about different educational systems and methods will give them new tools to use in their work which will increase their interest and motivation.

Impact on institutions

The project will promote the cooperation between schools and nations and the exchange of ideas and pedagogical approaches leading to the creation of a transnational network and increasing the schools’ European dimension and prestige. The institutions involved will manage to create an inclusive environment which will help all the learners achieve their full potential.

Impact on families and local community

The website will spread the outcomes of the project; the classes will organize workshops and little shows for the audience of families: so the families will be made more aware of the European dimension of education. Local municipality will take part in these activities.

The project will also have stakeholders from outside the school. They will include the NGOs and/or local institutions. They will cooperate with schools, thus the project an stakeholders will be positively affected in terms of dissemination to wider areas.

EXTENDED IMPACT AT REGIONAL, NATIONAL AND EUROPEAN LEVEL

Our analysis showed that unenthusiasm for school and irresponsible behavior of students, lack of basic skills and early school leavers are common problems among European students. The old, strict  model of education aimed at differentiating smart students for college from those who would work in non-academic vocations. This concept is not valid any more. In the world full of technological inventions, attractive approaches to life, it is vital to think about students’ needs, wishes and skills while planning their education and career otherwise they will get bored and demotivated soon. Schools need to do much more than just select students according to their cognitive abilities.

The main goals and desired impacts are as follows;
  • Evoking enthusiasm for school and responsible behaviors;
  • Overcoming lack of basic skills by providing alternative and attractive methods of learning;
  • Integrating good practices and new methods into daily activities;
  • Improving practices which will comply with needs of disadvantaged groups and dealing with social, linguistic and cultural diversity;
  • Enabling students to acquire and evaluate their basic and transversal skills, entrepreneurship, language competences and digital skills;
  • Creating new or more modern, dynamic, committed and professional environment inside the organisation
  • Having better understanding and recognition of skills and qualifications in Europe and beyond;
  • Enhancing the quality and relevance of the learning offer in education, training by developing new and innovative approaches and supporting the dissemination of best practices;
  • Increasing motivation and satisfaction for future life
  • Providing individual approach to students by giving each of them tasks to accomplish apart from regular school programme. Academic success, school sports facilities or other artistic and musical classes are usually designed for a very limited group of students. We want to create such an environment where everybody will be able to show their ability to improve their self-esteem, self-confidence, thus they will feel needed and accepted in society;
  • Promoting the use of ICT in performing the activities and communicating with partners about all the project issues;
  • Cooperating with wider institutions (other schools, formal and informal local organizations, NGOs, parent-teacher associations) for impacting more people and providing long lasting dissemination with our durable outcomes.
  • Fostering justice and inclusion in education and training to enable a high quality education process for all as well as to prevent drop-out and promote participation of disadvantaged groups in society.
