Innovative Learning and Teaching Activities (ILTA)
Date du début: 1 sept. 2015, Date de fin: 31 août 2017 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

According to recent European studies the basic skills(languages, mathematics, sciences) and transversal skills(ICT, entrepreneurship) of students are not sufficient. It is necessary to improve school education for achieving targets like a higher employment rate, a reinforced international attractiveness of Europe's higher education, a higher digital competence and a well-marked sense of initative and entrepreneurship at school for 2020. To reach all these targets we have to motivate students to be highly engaged in their school education. In the light of this awareness, the rational of the project is to develop strategies for enhancing the students' motivation, to improve basic and transversal skills and to increase the students' interest in the EU as an advantageous community offering opportunities international education and entrepreneurship. The four partner schools are on secondary level and the participant students at the age of 14 to 18. Altogether, about 300 students take part in the project. The schools are experienced in national and international projects. The main objectives of the project are: • to strengthen basic and transversal skills using innovative and learner-centred pedagogical approaches, • to enhance digital integration in learning and teaching and • to promote entrepreneurship education. Basic key competences are integrated in the curricula but transversal skills are not consequently integrated. For strengthening basic and transversal skills it is necessary to make curricular contents more attractive and to find a possibility to foster extra-curricular activities. In our project we would like to put emphasis on: • developing and exercising teaching-units within the curricula which are more attractive and closer to everyday life of students by using modern technologies in order to improve the basic skills and ICT skills/media literacy and on • improving entrepreneurial skills. Within the first focus we would like to combine media literacy and ICT-tools with basic competences in curricular contents. The objective is to develop media-based teaching units and methods in a cross-border process in order to create OERs (Open Educational Resources) for enhancing digital integration in learning and teaching. We want to foster innovative approaches to teaching within a technology-rich environment with particular focus on mathematics, sciences and the English language. We will also use interdisciplinary approaches to increase the attractiveness for students. Especially in the field of science, where we will include the features of inquiry-based science education (IBSE). Cooperatively, teachers of different countries will plan teaching units for different subjects (Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Political and Economical Sciences, Computer Sciences, English). They will choose different teaching and work forms and consider the possibilities of internal differentiation. Parts of the teaching units will be animations, screencasts, media-based educational trails,etc. The teaching units can be planned in meetings and within a learning management system which will allow teachers and students to communicate, work and exchange the results and outcomings. Students will work in transnational groups. The learning management system gives them the opportunity to communicate by mail, to execute video conferences, to form groups, to elaborate tasks, to write exams and so on. At the meetings the students will produce audio-guides, screencasts, teaching videos and so on. In Computer Sciences the European Computer Driving Licence (ECDL, used in around half of European countries, see "Developing key competences in Europe" - Eurydice) is a European certificate to test IT skills. Students of the German partner school already take the ECDL. For increasing the competences which are demanded in the ECDL test teachers will develop new materials of learner-centred pedagogical approaches, e.g. interactive rallies. Within the other sector extra-curricular activities will be conducted, mainly entrepreneurship. As mentioned in the "Youth on the move" concept one of the main aims is to enhance the international attractiveness of Europe's higher education institutions and to improve the employement situation of young people. Therefore students have to learn about the possibilities the European community offers to them. Our aim is to develop a dual degree marketplace for dual degree programs in the area of R & D (Research and Development) and green energy. The longer term benefits of the project are - higher motivation of students and staff by using innovative methods - enhanced digital integration in teaching and learning - more independent work of students - increasing interest of students in education - increasing interest of students in entrepreneurship.
