CREATIVE TEACHING TEHNIQUES TO PROMOTE SOCIAL INCLUSION
Through Erasmus + Project My, Our and European Heartbeat we successfully organised two more learning mobility activities in Spain.
The professional development course with the title Creative teaching tehniques to promote social inclusion took place from 27th November to 1th December 2023. Through this course we learned new learning-by-doing tehniques, we improved personal and social skills in
order to understand and adapt to the realities of our disadvantagedlearners.
As teachers and school leadership we have the need to develop our personal and social skills in order to understand the very different realities of learners that come from vulnerable backgrounds or are in risk of exclusion.
During this Erasmus + course we also visited the SOS Children's Village which is the organisation that ensures that children grow up with the care, protection and relationships they need to become their strongest selves.
The first mobility in the Erasmus + Project with the title My, Our and European Heartbeat being carried out at Primary School Kajetana Koviča Radenci was successfully completed.
As the English teacher, I took part in the Erasmus + funded course provided by Euromentor in Barcelona http://euromentor.es/, Spain. The course took place from 6th November to 10th November 2023.
One of the aims in the school project is enhancing teachers’ knowledge, capability of using ICT successfully in the classroom and recognizing the importance of using ICT in the classroom. The main topics covered introduction to ICT tools, creating content and the searching for possibilities of use in the lessons. The tools were introduced, discussed within the group of participants and later new content was created and presented.
The extra added value of the course for sure was the practical part of the course where the participants first took part in the lesson from the learners’ point of view, then learnt how to create a lesson and lastly presented the lesson to other participants. The highlight of the course was the visit to one of the schools in the neighbourhoods of Barcelona. More about the school at https://agora.xtec.cat/ceip-jruyra-l-h/
The teachers – visitors were invited to actively participate in the class teaching the content that the teachers of the school have prepared. We also had the opportunity for networking, to talk to various teachers and the headmaster, compare schools, curriculums, schools’ activities, …
I highly recommend taking part in the Erasmus + Projects because this is the unique opportunity to learn new content, revise the content you already know, get to know teachers from all over Europe, share ideas and grow, not just professionally but personally as well.
ERASMUS+ PROJEKT TRI SRCA: MOJ, TVOJ IN EVROPSKI UTRIP
Primary School Kajetana Koviča Radenci started carrying out the Erasmus + Project KA 122 with the title My, your and European Heartbeat on 1st October 2023.
With this eighteen-month project we want to gain new knowledge and strategies, methods and efficient approaches that will improve our daily work with our students but also encourage teachers to see their development potential. We want to take part in international staff mobilities in order to follow these goals:
- Improve staffs’ ICT competences to use it efficiently for planning, managing and carrying out educational activities for students.
- Learning about successful inclusion systems of children with migrant background, students with special needs and implementation of good practice into our learning process.
- Inclusion and communication.
Throughout the project teachers and staff will strive to raise our professional development. The competences and experience gained in the project will, undoubtedly, be used in our daily work activities with our students.
The project is fully funded by Erasmus +, financed by the European Commission.
OŠ Kajetana Koviča Radenci je z uspešno prijavo na razpis Evropske komisije programa Erasmus+ s 1. 10. 2023 pričela z izvajanjem Erasmus+ projekta z naslovom Tri srca: moj, tvoj in evropski utrip. Na šoli želimo s tem osemnajst mesecev trajajočim projektom pridobiti nova znanja in spoznati učinkovite pristope in metodologije, ki bodo dodatno obogatile naše delo. V okviru Erasmus+ projekta na šoli organiziramo mednarodne mobilnosti osebja, kjer bomo sledili naslednjim ciljem:
- Izboljšati e-kompetence pri zaposlenih, da bodo sposobni uporabljati IKT za načrtovanje, upravljanje in izvajanje izobraževalnih dejavnosti za učence.
- Spoznati sisteme uspešnega vključevanja otrok priseljencev in otrok s posebnimi potrebami v šolah ter prenos dobrih praks v naš učni proces.
- Vključevanje in komunikacija.
V sklopu projekta bomo iskali priložnosti za dvig našega profesionalnega razvoja. Pridobljene kompetence in izkušnje bomo s pridom uporabljali pri svojem nadaljnjem delu.
Projekt poteka v okviru programa Erasmus +, ki ga sofinancira Evropska unija.
