Stična Primary School is one of the largest primary schools in Slovenia, with 1,128 students and 120 teachers. The use of new technologies and the improvement of our students’ knowledge of the English language are two of our greatest academic concerns. In order to achieve our goals we have done a thorough analysis of our strengths and weaknesses, and we have determined that we need to gain knowledge and experience on how to implement English in early education, improve the use of ICT in both the learning process and outside the classroom, and the promotion of entrepreneurial ideas among our students.Firstly, our first and second graders will be introduced to English as their second language. Therefore, we need to acquire the competencies and innovative methodological approaches that our teachers need to improve their skills at this stage of education. The Danish educational system is renowned of being one of the best in Europe and English as a second language is introduced very early at schools. Two teachers from our school will observe their methodology whereas two other participants will learn about the methodology used for the teaching of the English language as a mother tongue in the UK. Both activities will provide us with an example of good practices and how to teach literacy, communication, reading and listening comprehension on a different level. Furthermore, another teacher will participate in a structured course to gain theoretical knowledge of modern pedagogical approaches and efficient didactic aids, whereas a second one will gain knowledge on how to effectively use creativity in different aspects of teaching.Secondly, modern technologies, which are close to our students as they have been exposed to them since childhood, come as a challenge for most of our teachers. Therefore, we believe it is imperative to educate our teachers regarding the use of modern technology in the classroom. The online classrooms that our teachers and students use are a great start but they are still very far from their full potential. Modern communication and the Internet technology provides people with a great deal of information nowadays as well as it enhances the internationalization of the school. One teacher from our school will obtain formation on how to use the ICT in the classroom, whereas another one will get acquainted with the use of computer tools and applications that enable communication with other members of a learning process. It needs to be pointed out that our teachers commute daily among three or four locations so it is imperative that one participant improves the competences in the field of management, organization, mediation and conflict resolution.Finally, we need to promote entrepreneurship to develop creativity, initiative, perseverance, cooperative work, responsibility and all the qualities required for the inclusion of our students in their future world of work. We intend to promote entrepreneurship and experiential learning. Our goal is to provide a stimulating learning environment for the development of creative thinking in young people, so that they can develop into bold and successful individuals. The teacher who will mentor these workshops will be trained in a structured course entitled “Introduction of entrepreneurship in schools” in order to gain global training on entrepreneurship, and will also observe a Danish school where the innovative approaches to problem solving are applied by using LEGOS.We are aware of the importance of the selection of participants with a dynamic, communicative and responsible profile to achieve our goals successfully. The Project committee will ensure our results’ impact before, during and after the whole process, and will monitor who, how and when to disseminate the results of the project, both locally and internationally, as the core of our impact and dissemination strategy. Such committee will also carry out the evaluation of the project results after each training activity through monthly reports, by the presentation and discussion of introducing new methods and by the interviews with students and teachers on the effectiveness and efficiency of the implementation of the new methodologies every six months.To conclude, we firmly believe that the sustainability of the new methodologies after the project is finished will finally ensure the successful improvements that we all expect on the fields described above. Our goal is to settle new and effective educational models and continue spreading our experiences at national and international level to contribute to the internationalization of our school.
