"Teaching Methodes on the Move"

The project "Teaching Methods on the Move" is a cooperation of 5 secondary schools in 5 different countries. The project involves 320 pupils aged between 14 and 19, with 58 teachers. "Teaching Methods on the Move" focuses on the use of ICT in all areas of school life, varying from actual teaching methods to how the administration of the school can be improved through the use of ICT.

ICT has had a major impact on education throughout the world, as teachers now have more resources than ever at their disposal in the modern classroom. This has led to the creation and adaptation of teaching methodologies, moving away from the old style didactic teaching that had exposition and practice at its core to classrooms full of investigation and discussion of the topics. The project aims at using the pupils prior knowledge of modern technology and how this can impact on the classroom environment.

The Partner Schools in the project:

This project will allow the partner schools to get an insight into the teaching and learning practices of the schools in each of the participating countries, allowing teachers to bring new ideas into their classroom, which will result in increased enthusiasm and motivation from staff and students alike, raising standards across the curriculum. It will involve the sharing of ideas and pedagogical approaches to teaching and learning from similar and different cultures as well as the development and testing of new teaching methodologies and pedagogical strategies for use in the classroom. Through this project, we would hope to see evidence that ICT when used effectively in the school environment, has a positive effect on both student, teacher and the wider school environment. Pupils should also demonstrate ICT skills as a direct result of the transnational collaboration of activities.
