Date du début: 1 sept. 2015,
Date de fin: 31 août 2017
The background for this project is the desire to modernize the teaching methods of the Nautical Studies in our schools in light of the IMO recommendations following recent disasters at sea. As well as to improve teachers’ and students’ digital literacy, create a local source of pedagogical resources and a uniform digital learning environment. In this project we hope to achieve better cooperation between students combining peer-learning Nautical Studies and ICT which may lead to better results for the students.
The project objectives are;
Modernizing education by finding methods for peer learning for teachers as well as students to share good practice in Nautical Studies by using ICT.
Improving attainment in basic skills for young people such as technical language skills in Nautical Studies and in ICT-skills.
Improving students’ ability to analyse, communicate and ability to manage information.
Improving students’ knowledge about European institutions, countries and culture.
Improving school staff competences in language and ICT as well as teaching methodology.
Find methods to implement cross disciplinary work
The total number of partners in this project is 3(? . London Nautical School in UK will coordinate the project and will be in charge of implementing peer-learning methods and standards. The Nautical school in London has a dedicated Nautical Studies and ICT departments, the Italian school, +++, bring skills of technical and entrepreneurship. The Turkish school +++ is specialized in Navigation and Simulation Techniques. The London Nautical School, follows the successful English model of engaging students in becoming responsible for their own learning.
To reach these goals the partners will work together in a four different subject areas one per term.
(A) Promoting computer literacy and safe behaviour online. During the first term we will learn new technical skills in Nautical field which we will be able to use throughout the project.
(B) Promoting inter-cultural awareness
(C) Promoting Nautical Studies and Entrepreneurship
(D) Promoting Technical Linguistic skills
During these thematic studies all partners will work on activities or work tasks, entrepreneurship skill will be incorporated continuously within the project. We will communicate using different ICT-tools such as Skype, Google drive, Google site, Facebook. Outcomes of the activities will be shared as pod casts, movies, e-books, tutorials etc.
The project will contain motilities so the students can learn more about everyday life and culture in other European countries. During these motilities we will teach the students new skills. After a mobility the participants will teach new skills to their peers.
Methodology to be used in carrying out the project
Local project groups with both students and teacher will be set up in the individual schools as well as international project groups each containing one student from each project country and a teacher who will monitoring the process and give guidance. Teacher seminars will be organized to further train teachers in peer-learning as well as ICT-skills.
To deepen the cooperation-experience there will be motilities where the international project groups will meet and learn new skills and review their results.
