Creative path of learning

The " Creative path of learning " project refers to the exchange of best practices, to improve students' knowledge and skills in math and sciences for a good academic route or fot a better integration on the labor market , integrating data using non-formal and informal methods , experiments and experiential learning in various contexts and transdisciplinary, or online and outdoor learning .
According to Europe 2020 strategy , the project partners want to foster a new kind of smart and sustainable growth , increasing both transversal competences for teachers students and the strengthening of lifelong learning, the effective use of digital networks for greater youth inclusion on the labor market, in the current financial and economic crisis .
After applying a questionnaire to 500 students in 5 partner schools , it was found that 35 % of students consider math as boring and 32% consider it a difficult matter , 41% of students want more experimental lessons outside school.
These considerations require more appealing courses in which the student becomes teacher and learner, collaborator developing teaching materials. Lessons will be more appealing making the direct connection between math / science and everyday life , using innovative teaching methods , integrating informal and non -formal methods in teaching and learning mathematics and science .
On student level we identify the following needs:
- participation in more attractive lessons of combined use of ICT tools and formal with informal and non -formal methods
-facilitation of individual - paced learning through access to online learning sources
-practical approaches in math and sciences lessons emphasize practical and inter connections and cross curricular application
- increasing the understanding of basic concepts and of transdisciplinary application
- improving school results in mathematics and sciences
- cooperation with youth on learning themes .
Following the questionnaires application to a sample of 60 mathematics and science teachers in the 6 partner schools , it got revealed that 47 % do not know what non-formal methods are, 75 % of the teachers know how to use ICT tools for learning but many of them do not know how to develop learning materials that stimulate collaborative learning animation .
We have identified the following needs for for teacher training / development:
- to develop skills of achieving teaching materials content and facilitate trans disciplinary collaboration
- to develop teaching skills integrating non -formal methods , informal and the on-line learning in different contexts
- achievement of best practices sharing with other teachers to develop open sources in Europe in math and science learning .
- to improve their collaboration and communication with students beyond school lessons
At the school level needs were identified :
- development of individual and collaborative learning environments
- training a group of teachers to develop methods and web 2 . 0 tools for students' age particularities
-development of collaboration and learning tools and methods beyond school walls by: outdoor activities , projects, experiential lessons through collaboration with other entities , open source learning tools
- improving collaboration with local entities/regional
The principal aim is:
Develop an educational system based on open source and experiential learning , integrating non - formal and informal with formal methods.
O1 . training 20 teachers of mathematics, physics , chemistry , biology of 5 partner schools in 5 short term joint training events, in creating and implementating web-based tools 2 . 0 in the learning – teaching- evaluation .
O2 . development of methods and tools for online learning on study subjects as mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, using web 2.0 tools .
O3 . integration of informal and non -formal methods in different learning contexts in mathematics and sciences
O4.diversification of learning environments
he target group will be of 230 students and 20 teachers of mathematics, physics, chemistry or biology of the 5 partner schools in the project and can be divided into 3 categories:
-20 teachers will be participated to the short term traning event and be leaders of developing new activities educational web 2.0 tool.
-230 students aged 14-18 years from the 5 partner schools . Each of partner school will have to select 2 experimental classes of students ( 20-25 students /class)where will apply teaching methods, tools developed in the project.
-100 Students of 230 will be trained in the partner schools blended meetings.
The project will be an oppotunity to do best changes didactical practices and learn from each other, introduce interculturality like as a element of progress.
