EUROSCHOOL examines education and evaluates -via research- successful elements from schools and cultures across Europe to create the ultimate European School. A common prospectus for ‘Euroschool’ will be produced during the project and will highlight key methods from the perspective of students and teachers. In this project eight countries (Poland, Italy, United Kingdom, Germany, Austria, Spain, The Netherlands and Sweden) with diverse cultures, schoolsystems and socioeconomic backgrounds will be united.
We will collaborate in workshops & field trips to experience diverse education, ways of learning and aspects of culture. We will evaluate our findings constantly and compile a common prospectus.Project meetings will be arranged in a way that all participating schools meet each other at least twice during the project time. Parallel workshops will be based on one of the 5 research subjects. Evaluation meetings will assess progress and address issues. It is important to involve a high number of partners, this will facilitate investigations into education systems for competent appraisal of existing systems.
The project will reflect on issues and preferences of European students today. We shall cover subjects of interest to pupils and staff which are challenging and will improve our existing school systems. This might be an inspiration for other institutions in Europe. The project will impact on various levels in a wide variety of skills including: language, multimedia, communication, organisational and ICT. Core competences will be developed. This will encourage cooperation and understanding of a multicultural Europe in the wider communities involved.
The final product will be disseminated in a variety of ways allowing for the completed prospectus to possibly act as a basis for applying change to educational systems and a platform for further innovation.
The different elements this project examines are:
- Teaching Methods and Learning Strategies
- Learning Environments
- Extra Curriculum Activities
