The project's title: IDEAL – Initiatives for Educational Development through Advanced Learning.
This project was created in order to solve the problems our school was dealing with, namely our teachers’ training in using new techniques and web tools, computer programmes, tablets, applications and educational online platforms, as well as developing competences of collaborative project writing which should involve the students, by using Web 2.0 resources.
The project has reflected an IDEAL - both for our teachers and especially for our pupils who expect modern education, following the European model. We have succeeded in achieving the following objectives:
Our major objective has been the development of teachers' competences regarding the innovative and creative approach of the new digital devices (tablets, e-books, smart screens, the Internet) for the formation and development of digital competences for students.
Our specific objectives have been:
1. Competence development for 5 primary school teachers in using tablets (Android, iPad, Windows) and associated resources, such as applications; collaborative writing, photo, video, podcast, presentations, gamification, computer, interactive board - aiming at the formation of digital competences for primary school pupils until August 2016.
2. Competence development for 5 middle/secondary school teachers in order to approach innovative strategies of teaching-learning-assessing by ICT and Web.2.0 resources and the use of working tools such as Blogs, Webs, Weebly, eTwinning, eTwinning desktop, Tools workshop, twinspaces, aiming at the development of digital competences for pupils until August 2016.
3. Development of the abilities of the 10 teachers in applying the competences achieved on a European level to the whole school (digital competences, collaboration and team work) in order to find solutions for ICT-based learning for 10 teachers, until August 2016;
4. Improvement of the educational strategies involving the new technologies for middle/ secondary school and extending them to the primary level in order to develop the pupils’ digital competences (for at least 80% of the pupils) until August 2016.
